Hi, I’m Scott Cody. I’m a photographer living near Boulder, Colorado and I’m on a personal journey to recreate the awe and inspiration that I felt when my teenage self and friends would slowly and reverently pour over the pages of magazines like Climbing, Bike, and Thrasher.
I grew up in Southern California where I developed a love of the outdoors through mountain biking and rock climbing. In my youth, I was drawn to sculpture, then, as a climber, I found a connection to route setting. Most recently, I’ve been very active as a trail builder, constructing miles of mountain bike trails over the past several years.
I’ve always been drawn to shapes and movement, but it wasn’t until much later in life, and at the encouragement of a good friend, that I found the ability to connect the two through photography.
My son has been riding bikes with me for almost fifteen years and his riding has quickly become one of my favorite subjects to shoot.
