Pete Scott’s passion for photography was initially inspired by a fundraising motorbike journey of over 2000 miles around Equador in aid of a charity for orphaned children. “There were staggeringly beautiful landscapes to admire daily, from lush Amazon rainforest to the magnificent Andes mountain range,” says Pete, who is based in Poole. “This was my spark for appreciating landscapes and their beauty and diversity. I got my first decent camera last year and since then I’ve been on a steep learning curve. I want to continue expanding my knowledge and skills both in taking photos and in post production of the images.”

Pete, who is a single dad to daughter Amber, balances his passion for photography with running his own business (Naturally Tiled) and heading up AIM - an altruistic builders collective which gives practical support to families in Poole and Bournemouth who have children with life-limiting conditions. “We provide skilled builders to carry out any alterations or building work required to enable families to better care for their children at home,” explains Pete, who also helps out at St Paul’s Night Shelter for the homeless.

“Combining this with being a single dad doesn’t leave me a lot of spare time, but when I get the opportunity I am out there with my camera capturing the Dorset coast and countryside.”
