Profile

Hi, I’m Scott McCook otherwise known as Scott Jon Photography. I’m a Perth based Photographer and I have had a passion for photography since about 14 years of age where I was fortunate enough to take a class in high school. When I left school photography took a back seat as I carved my path in the construction industry which resulted in me starting my own company in 2008 called Nextgen Concrete Services. After the first 4 years of long hours and hard work to grow the company I took a holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia, it was on this holiday I knew it was time to pick up a camera again and this time not put it down.

From that moment I have not looked back, I’ve always had a passion for photographs that spark the imagination and you will see that in my gallery, from the Milky Way Galaxy, to the coast and into the forests I just love being in the outdoors and creating images that excite me. I am constantly challenging myself and enjoy sharing my craft with others via workshops and other outlets.

I have a really big passion for quality and I have spent much time fine tuning my prints and finding a printer and framer who are locally based, professional and provide the highest quality finished product.

In the last few years I have secured my Professional Photographer Accreditation from the AIPP in 2015 and achieved Associate status in 2016.

Enter the bragging rights! Achieving these below accolades are part of my journey and it’s a pleasure to be able to share them with you as I grow with and enjoy photography.
