Scott Ruderman

Scott Ruderman

Scott Alexander Ruderman graduated from Suffolk University with a degree in entrepreneurial studies. A passion in photography has led him to pursue an independent study program at the Salt Institute in Portland Maine. In Maine, Scott documented the life of an Amish wood worker – “Waiting For Paradise”, and made a short film about an elderly man’s decision to leave modern society, and join an Amish community – “An Upward Calling”. During this time, Scott realized his love in telling stories with his camera as his tool. Currently, Scott is producing work in documentary, narrative, and commercial forms. He enjoys traveling, playing squash, and skiing!
