Author Bio: Scott Taylor
Scott Taylor spent most of his youth in Cleveland, Ohio. Every summer his family would enjoy a month with his great aunt, Ann Brown, in the family home by the post office in Beaufort, before the days of air conditioning and ever present streetlights. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill gave Taylor his formal education, but summers still belonged to Beaufort. Following a three-year stint at The Chapel Hill News, Taylor accepted a job as photographer at the Duke University Marine Laboratory in Beaufort in 1981. He completed his Duke career as Assistant Director of Communications in the summer of 2000. He currently operates Scott Taylor Photography in Beaufort. Taylor’s images of coastal North Carolina can be seen in local, state, regional and national magazines, publications, and galleries. Time permitting, he can be found sailing the waters of coastal North Carolina on his sailboat Focus – one of the many reasons a guy from Cleveland likes to spend his time in a place like this.
