A panel made up of esteemed photography industry professionals selected Scott’s “Guye Peak Summit” image as a finalist in the Outdoor Sports and Activities category. The photo features professional skier Bryce Phillips in Washington’s Cascade Range.
My Modern Metropolis, or mymodernmet.com, is dedicated to “amazing art, clever design, and incredible photography;” and they receive an average of 5 million visitors a month. About Scott’s “An Elevated State” project, they said “Rinckenberger shows us Washington as we’ve never seen it before. Love how he purposely captures man as just a small silhouette against the grandeur of nature.”
Imaging-Resource.com commissioned Scott to put the new Sony Alpha A99 full-frame camera through a rigorous real world test review. They were so impressed with the in-depth analysis and images he submitted that they created a new, more image-centric, format for their camera reviews. Scott doesn’t claim to a camera review expert, but his analysis of the Sony A99 is thorough and relevant to the kind of photographer he is. There’s some great insights into his shooting methods as well.
Being the first show in evo’s new award-winning retail/gallery space in 2013 was both an honor for Scott and a proper collaboration between him and longtime friend, and evo owner, Bryce Phillips. evo produced a wonderful video of the event, which includes gallery views of Scott’s images and some background on the project from the artist himself.
