Scott has spent many hours around the Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California. He is drawn to the pier because every visit is different. Between the tide, weather, and time of day, the view is never the same. This particular evening, Scott was enjoying a rare moment in having the pier all to himself. The sun had just dipped behind the ocean. As he continuously clicked the shutter, he captured this perfect moment when the sand, sea, and sky became one. Please click here for sizing and more info.
I get asked often how do I know where to go shoot next? I don’t want to discredit the research and vision that’s put in but it’s pretty simple. I’m pretty sure the things you photograph or paint is what you care the most about. I care about water. It could be an ocean, stream, lake, river or waterfall. Everything about being around water hits all my senses at once and instantly puts a spell over my body. Not like voodoo shit but it’s pretty incredible.

Scott knows there are many kinds of meditations for different people. Everything in this image reflects his personal and unique meditation. He is obsessed with water movement because it is always changing with patterns and light. This image was captured on the gulf side of Florida, immediately after sunrise. As the sun slowly rose behind him and gently caressed the tip of the waves, it allowed Scott to share a unique and beautiful perspective of the Gulf of Mexico.

Throughout his travels around the world, Scott has met many interesting people who, through introspective conversations, eventually lead him to beautiful locations in their community. This image captures Bob’s boats from Islamorada Island in the Florida Keys. Bob has been residing on the water for fifteen years, has three girlfriends, and loves beer. Scott says that Bob never had to tell him any of the above facts because it was so easy to read in his eyes that he had a passion for life that was not only addictive, but also contagious.

Art not only creates interest and a focal point to any space, but it can also balance a room and serve as a window.
Sizing art can be tricky. We’re here to help. Before investing in a Papek Fine Art print, email us a picture of your wall along with the furniture dimensions. Then choose your favorite image and we will email you a mock-up that shows exactly how the image will look above your furniture. Remember that framing adds 8 to 12 inches to the piece (i.e., a 20” x 60” print becomes a 32” x 72” art piece).

Scott Papek is a self-taught Fine Art nature photographer who was born in Omaha, Nebraska, the current base of his gallery and business. Although his previous life in the music business first prompted the flow of his creative juices and took him to California, Scott eventually recognized his calling to an alternative outlet that permitted him to share his creativity through a camera lens.
Scott began a disciplined self-education in La Jolla, California, where he would rise early each morning, grab his camera, and head to capture the natural beauty of the coastal area into frequent inspiring reproductions. Occasional setbacks only seemed to motivate Scott, and nine months of persistent through-the-lens devotion was rewarded with his first gallery shot. Since then, Scott has been living a life of adventure, freedom, and fulfillment where he has made it his mission to mentor others to do the same.
When he is not spending time with his lovely wife and their young twins, Scott’s curiosity and drive to explore new places fuel his travels around the world where images await capture.
