Scott started shooting short films in high school, when Miss Cole - an incredibly supportive performing arts Teacher, entrusted Scott and his three friends with the schools solitary VHS camera and let them run away with their imaginations.

This led Scott down a filmmaking path he has followed ever since.

After five years studying TV and film production Scott spent several years working as a freelance corporate Camera Operator, before finally getting a break and moving in to TV drama and features as a Camera Trainee and 2nd AC. During those years as a Camera Assistant Scott got to work with some inspiring Cinematographers, such as Adam Suschitzky BSC, Lol Crawley BSC, Jean Philippe Gossart AFC, Si Bell BSC and Richard Stoddard, who would shape, hone and define his love of the craft. After five years as an AC Scott felt it was time to pursue his aspirations to become a full-time DOP, and left assisting behind. 

In 2016 Scott was nominated for a prestigious RTS Award (Craft Excellence - Photography), which he was again nominated for in 2017 and went on to win. In 2020 Scott was one of only 20 emerging DOPs to be accepted on to the inaugural British Society of Cinematographers Mentorship Programme.

Recent credits include shooting the fourth series of the hugely popular 'Man Like Mobeen', for Producer Lynn Roberts and Director Akaash Meeda, the 6 part BBC2 post-apocalyptic comedy series 'Henpocalypse!', from Writer Caroline Moran (Hullraisers), Producer Helen Williams, and Director Jack Clough (People Just Do Nothing), a new 6 part ITVX coming-of-age comedy drama 'G'Wed', reuniting with his Mobeen Director Akaash Meeda, and the 6 part Roughcut TV comedy 'Things You Should Have Done', for Producer Steve Monger and Director Jack Clough.
