I was born
in St. Louis and my passion for photography started when I received
my first camera at six years of age. When I was twelve, I borrowed
a 35 mm camera for my first photography class at Crossroads School,
and from that point on I was most often seen with a camera in hand.
years my skills and creative eye developed and sharpened. In college,
I spent more on film and processing than on tuition. I became proficient
in portraiture and studio lighting and offered my talents to others
for a nominal fee. My work in a camera store with a photo lab allowed
me to fine tune my knowledge of color and custom black and white printing.
later, I was doing photography full time and set about the task of
finding a studio. I found the perfect spot and with two business partners
we purchased a commercial building from the city on the corner of
Russell Blvd. and Mississippi Ave. The extensive renovations we did
earned us a Landmark Award, and I had a wonderful studio in which
to expand by rapidly growing photography business. Scott Lokitz Photography
and Signature Arts opened for business in June, 1998.
