You might be surprised to learn that when you see this energetic, busy photographer out and about fulfilling photography requests or volunteering for any number of community projects, that he is at his 'side' job. Since Scott Kuhn Photography was first formed, he has retained a full time job at Windstream Communications, a company that he's been with since 1996. There, he began working as a customer service agent and, after several promotions, currently holds the title of Distributed Computing Consultant Telecom Engineer, a position that typically demands 45-50 hours of his time each week.
Originally from Ohio, Scott grew up in Niles which the birthplace of president William McKinley as well as the location of his presidential library. At age 15, he first arrived in the Northwest Georgia with no plans to ever have a home here. While he was in the midst of a planned move to Florida, where his parents had been offered a job managing a beachside hotel, the family's commute was broken up with an overnight stay with relatives in Dalton. While here, Scott's dad was informed of a well paying job available in the area that was hiring immediately. Scott's father looked in to that job, found the offer more appealing that the position waiting in Florida, and took it. Later, when deciding on a place to live, Scott's parents ask for their children's input and Scott requested that they chose an area that would allow him to attend a high school that offered ROTC. Murray High was the only Murray/Whitfield school at the time that offered the program, which cemented the family's decision to set up residence in Murray. He has been here ever since!
In photography, he's enjoyed several instances that would be considered highlights. He served the photographer of the Lisa and Paul Allen wedding at 'The Island' in Pigeon Forge, TN, a ceremony that was featured on the March 4, 2017 season premier of the popular television show 'Say Yes to the Dress'. One of his images was also selected to be on an annual T-shirt for 'The Wall that Heals', which is a travelling replica of the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC, while another was selected to be the cover shot for the 2018 calendar distributed by Georgia Ag Farm Credit. His weather related photography is often featured on the page belonging to James Spann, the popular Alabama meteorologist, and in 2020 WRCB TV (Channel 3) news in Chattanooga featured a news story about Scott and the Milky Way silhouette portraits he offers annually from the lookout atop Fort Mountain. The Facebook page of 'EarthSky' (1.2 million fans strong) has used his images as their cover photo in several instances over the years, always giving him credit, of course. And large copies of his prints are adorning walls at more than one of Windstream's corporate offices, inside several local businesses in both Whitfield and Murray Counties, as well as in the homes of each of the 20 volunteer truck drivers who transported 'The Wall That Heals'.
In his free time, Scott enjoys gaming (he and daughter Hayleigh often play together), travelling, and learning anything he can about World War II. He is a devoted fan of the Pittsburg Steelers, Tim Burton, 'Weird Al' Yankovic, and Star Wars.
Scott has been married to high school sweetheart, Holly, since 1994 and they are the proud parents of Hayleigh (2000) and Tucker (2001), Each family member has and continues to contribute to the Scott Kuhn Photography brand in their own ways.
