Last Week:

So why is Scott Davis always hiding behind a camera lens? He says he likes to take pictures, but I don’t think anyone is buying that.

Yet, photography is his profession. He has a portrait studio, Stone Cottage Studio on Bridge Square, where he spends his time when he is not serving on the city council.

Scott was born in Baudette, Minnesota and grew up the oldest of three. He really did join a carnival out of high school and traveled for a time with it. He then struck off into a world of sales and worked for a variety of retail companies, including Radio Shack and Target. He later sold for software companies in different parts of the country. In 1987, he moved back to Minnesota to work for Northgate Computers and then found his way to Northfield.

In 2000 he became part of Over & Back folklore when he proposed to his wife on stage during a performance. He and Beth Bergmans now reside in the stone house at the corner of Fremont and College.

And back to the photography…Scott explains why he does it:

“If you really enjoy something, that’s what you should be doing.” It’s that simple.

Guests: Beth Bergmans (Williams) Ryota Kimura, our exchange student from Japan (Martin); Elisa Skyttem, our exchange student from Denmark (Vicki Dilley), Riana Dilley (Lee Dilley), Machelle Kendricks (Gett)
