Gun Stock Photos is a collaboration of Yamil Sued and J Scott Photography providing the Firearm and Outdoor industries with a one-stop-shop for all product imaging and collaterals needs. We are able to provide the highest level of quality not only because of our extensive experience but because we are and have been involved in the shooting and outdoors industry for more than two decades.
Gun Stock Photos has been structured to serve the firearms industry with a seamless workflow. We begin by holding a Federal Firearms License. This means that we can receive and ship firearms directly. No need to use a middle-man FFL holder.
Our extensive on-hand collection of firearms, props, and accessories allow us to build photographic sets that showcase your products and realize your vision. If we do not have an item on-hand, we have extensive industry contacts and are able to acquire the needed firearms, accessories, props, and models.
James Scott has been involved with design, imaging, software development, video and photography for close to 30 years.
In addition to photography, J Scott is primarily tasked with post-production, graphics and collaterals design for our clients. We specialize in serving the Firearm and Outdoor industries with professional product imaging.
Scott got started with Photoshop at the beginning, along with Digital Darkroom by Silicon Beach Software, and helped a photo processing business offer most likely the very first digital restoration and digital-to-film printing business in San Diego. It was painfully slow back in the day running on a Mac II and no color support in those early versions.
Scott has always been interested in still photography but never enjoyed working in a darkroom, or the cost of film and processing. Consequently he only used film cameras for personal snapshots and professionally for product photography when producing catalogs and product collateral. Until digital cameras like the Canon Digital Rebel became available. He has recently converted to Nikon to provide compatibility within Gun Stock Photos.
Scott is also a firearms expert and is known throughout the firearms industry and competition world. His knowledge and relationships give Gun Stock Photos unique access to create images that are unavailable to others.
