Biography

Scott Forsyth is a professional photographer specializing in Canadian landscape scenery.


In his 20s, he spent three years living abroad in northern Japan and backpacking through China and South-East Asia. This experience inspired him to see his Canadian homeland in a new light. Devoted to exploring Canada, from the Atlantic to the Pacific and Arctic Ocean coastlines, Scott has embarked on a lifelong photographic journey to depict the vastness and beauty of the Canadian landscape.

An accredited member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), Scott has twice received the regional Alberta award for Photographic Artist of the Year, in addition to two nominations for the National Photographic Artist of the Year. Scott’s Canadian landscape imagery has won several Best-In-Class awards for scenic and fine art categories. 

In 2014 Scott received the designation of Master Photographer in Fine Art (MPF) from the Master Photographers International Organization (MPIO). His photographs have been published on the cover of Canadian Geographic, and in Canadian Geographic’s Atlas of Canada, in addition to several magazines, books, and calendars.

On the merit of his mission to explore remote Canadian landscapes and to share the resultant stories and images from these expeditions through publications and presentations, Scott was elected into the College of Fellows of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in 2015, and became a Fellow of The Explorer’s Club (an international association based in New York City) in 2016.

As a Resource Photographer for Adventure Canada, Scott provides photography presentations and workshops aboard the ship Ocean Endeavour, on expedition tourism travel to the Canadian East Coast and Arctic. In 2017, Scott will be a photographic host for Maple Leaf Adventures on a west coast trip to Haida Gwaii. For information see the Workshops section on this website.
