'I had an appointment to meet Scottie in a downtown Auckland Café. Struck me as being a quiet, creative specialist that could be brilliant at his craft or a con man. I was sucked in and have never regretted it. Scottie works tirelessly, understands angles, light, shutter speeds, and the subject. On the Tour of New Zealand Scottie created history. He captured shots that if missed would have disappeared into cyberspace never to be relived. Instead almost before the shutter had closed the images were up on the website and everything Scottie promised he delivered on. Our investment in Scottie will be repaid 1000% with the photos marching on long after the Tour is over, capturing the hearts (and wallets) of sponsors and future competitors alike. The images are stunningly beyond belief'

'ScottieT is the official photographer for North Harbour Triathlon Club & the Triathlete's Corner Swim & Run series. Scott gets some awesome shots & is there without fail no mater what the conditions are. We are very fortunate to have Scott being so dedicated to the club. He also does some great one on one work with club athletes & always has great feedback from these athletes.'
Theresa Knight, Triathlete's Corner Swim & Run Director'I have had the very good pleasure of working with Scott on the Samoa Swim Series and Half Ironman events in 2013. Scott's approach to his craft is very sound and engaging. Our athletes love him! His involvement has certainly helped with the overall delivery and quality of our events. We will have him back as often as we can.'
Seti Afoa, Samoa Swim Series, Tour of Samoa and Samoa Half Iron
'When we organised our first photo shoot, we were lucky enough to cross paths with Scottie. It’s his versatility and approachable manner that set him apart from other photographers in the fashion world! Several seasons down the track, he is still as thorough and resourceful as he was at that first shoot.'
Andie Clark, Life Space Ltd
'Scott is the official photographer for Auckland Swimming. He is hard working and engaging with the athletes. His work at our events is discrete and unobtrusive but of a high standard which results in athletes and their families having access to a unique record of their sporting achievements and action. The nature of swimming’s environment is challenging for photographers but Scott has mastered it and is producing some great work.'
Brian Palmer, Executive Officer, Auckland Swimming
'Scottie's enthusiasm to get the best shot is incredible. He is loaded with a box of tricks, looking outside the square and tailoring photo shoots to the needs and values of every individual client. Scottie has an amazing talent, has passion for my sport and has become a good friend.'
Clark Ellice Elite ITU Triathlete
'Was absolutely wrapped to have a tuition session with Auckland photographer Scott Taylor in Northcote Point. It was an amazing opportunity for a critique of some of my favourite shots, and to get valuable feedback from an industry professional. The session encouraged me to think outside the square and to work with some of the advanced settings on my camera. Looking forward to the next event or lazy Sunday to put some of the tips into practice!'
'Not only does Scott capture some amazing photos but he also provides a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere to work in. He puts thought and effort into making the most out of the environment and his meticulous nature definitely pays off in his photos. I really enjoyed working with him and even learnt a thing or two about photography along the way!'
Elise Salt, New Zealand Development Squad Triathlete
'As a community newspaper covering south-east Auckland, we have put quite specific requests to Scott for photos of athletes from our area. Each time Scott has come through with a number of fantastic images to select from, very quickly, allowing us to showcase our people in a great light. Top bloke to deal with too.'
Dan Silverton, Sports Reporter, Howick and Pakuranga Times
'Scott is a breath of fresh air to work with. Straight away you feel at ease with him. He takes the time to listen to what you want, then goes out of his way to get it. As an example I wanted a sunset with stippled clouds behind the hotel. This sort of sky really only happens in early summer so he waited three months, then got exactly the photo I wanted. I highly recommend Scott.'
Dee Harris, Manager, The Esplanade Hotel
'Scott offers a customised service for each job, he listens to exactly what is required and delivers quickly everytime. With a very personable nature and exceptionally professional service, it’s easy to see why Scott is in high demand. We’ll definitely be getting Scott back to assist us again soon.'
Nikki Benseman, Marketing Manager, TransNet NZ Ltd
'We choose Scottie T Photography as our preferred supplier for reasons beyond the exceptional standard of his work. Scott’s application and commitment to the job speaks volumes of his character – reliable, enthusiastic, talented and a genuine nice guy. Scott has a very personable and friendly nature, whether the task requires working with an Olympic athlete or a 5 year old entering his or her first event, he has the ability to connect and develop a rapport with everybody he encounters.'
Simon Brady, General Manager, State Beach Series (Quantum Events Ltd)
'Two of the most important factors in a great wedding photographer are amazing photos and hardly noticing that they are there. Scottie managed to do both with ease, and we now have some treasured memories for the rest of our lives. It's always a nervous time when you select someone to take pictures, but Scottie not only nailed the ceremony, speeches etc, but also found time to capture various moments unseen by my wife and I. For me, that was above and beyond what I expected and we thank him for that.'
Nic and Kelly Sheppard
'Scottie helped us with the basics of photography so we could get the most out of our newly purchased SLR's. He kept it easy to understand, casual and fun. I can now say I look at photography completely differently.'
Brendon and Tenielle McHugh
'We used Scottie T Photography twice for our shoots and were very pleased with the results. Natural, warm shots that showcased my Jewellery collection perfectly.'
Barbara Harris, Owner, Water Jewels London
'Scottie is a great photographer and very motivated to take any photos for us. We publish a Japanese magazine and he takes photos showing the interview and for the cover of our magazine, of NZ celebrities, sportsman and musicians. He is very good at capturing that special moment and the feeling of the occasion. We are very happy to work with him!'
Takako Yamaguchi-Scott, Senior Editor, Gekkan NZ
'Scott did a fantastic job of photographing our wedding. He was very well organised and prepared and delivered an excellent range of photos that we will treasure forever.'
Jon and Nadja Rossiter
'Scott’s passion for photography and getting the best shots is always a high priority for him and you’ll find him in great locations on the course to capture the best of the event, like out on Auckland’s Harbour Bridge at the Auckland 70.3, or waste deep in water at the State Beach Series.'
