The Official NGS Conference Photographer, Scott Stewart, will join us again this year in Richmond.
A photographer for many years, he opened Scott Stewart Photography in 2012. Usually found behind a camera at some of our recent conferences, he was officially appointed at the 2012 Cincinnati conference.
Scott has been an enthusiastic genealogist for decades, pursuing ancestors in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and a regular conference attendee since the NGS 1993 Conference in The States in Baltimore, Maryland.
You will see Scott moving through the conference taking official as well as casual pictures of events and attendees to make this a richer experience for all our NGS members. He loves taking pictures of people. He said, “I see the beauty in each person I photograph, and want to share how great they look to me with others. I think it is sad people hate to have their pictures taken. Trust your photographer, because people love you just the way you are and want to treasure the moments and memories they have with you! Love them enough to love yourself.”
Scott spent his career in the US Government, retiring in 2005. He is a full time consultant for a company developing trusted and unique solutions to address the global challenges faced by the National Security community. He is married and the proud father of a daughter who recently graduated from Virginia Tech.
