Skott Chandler is a photographic artist in Denver, Colorado where he teaches at the Art Institute of Colorado and the Denver School of Photography. Skott came to photography late in his undergraduate career while studying Studio Art at Southern Utah University. During that time he experimented with the photographic medium, testing the limits of the ideals of photography. While at SUU, he received a UGRASP (Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Program) grant for his surreal Photocubism series.
After graduating from Southern Utah University as the Outstanding Graduate of Art and Design, Skott decided to further pursue his photographic career in the MFA program at Savannah College of Art and Design. While attending SCAD, he was chosen for a scholarship to help the school create a book and photograph archive of the swiftly vanishing historic buildings in the Sham Shui Po district of Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Skott has exhibited throughout the United States, as well as internationally in Bordeaux, France, Hong Kong, and Geneva, Switzerland. Photography collector and curator, W.M. Hunt and Klompching Gallery owner, Darren Ching, selected images from House Watch to exhibit at Brooklyn's Klomppching Gallery in their inaugural "FRESH 2011" photography competition. Skott has also been exhibited and recognized by Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA, as one of the Top 30 Emerging Artist Under 30 for 2011. Skott is currently a finalist in Photolucida’s 2013 Critical Mass competition.
