For three decades, J. Scott Graham has carved a unique path, combining a rare ability to capture iconic images with inventive business acumen to become one America's most celebrated photographers. Utilizing his imagery, Graham creates, manufactures, then distributes his product line throughout the United States and in the Caribbean.
Though he works with many state parks, national forests, historic sites, and tourist destinations to develop an array of items for their retail stores, Graham is most well-known for his legendary photographs of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
"Of all the many beautiful places I shoot" Graham states, "these two parks remain closest to my home and to my heart."
Graham has uniquely interpreted and influenced the scenic value of these national treasures, and was the first person to create a coffee table book about the Blue Ridge Parkway. His annual calendars are immensely popular, and he has published more images and sold more products featuring America's two most visited national park sites than any other person in the world.
Graham's reach also extends to more tropical locales as some of his most significant work can be found in the Caribbean. From San Juan National Historic Site to El Yunque National Forest, his timeless photographs portray and protect locations of significant world history and lands of immense biodiversity.
Scott resides in Johnson City, Tennessee, and has been married to his wife, Cathy, since 1990. They enjoy two sons, Chace and Jackson, a daughter-in-law Lainey, and are expecting their first grandchild.
