For over three decades photographer Scott Lynn Riley went on the road to complete photographic assignments in roughly 50 countries.  His publishings included well over a hundred magazine cover features, numerous books, including his Toho no Chie, published by Kadokawa Shoten, with an introduction to his work by Nakazawa Shinichi, and The Art of Bonsai, Zuam Publishers, Tokyo.  

His editorial and commercial photographs on luxury travel, landscapes and people, presented in his own clear and forthright style are well known through his many publications.

Photographing corporate promotion images in five countries for Fujifilm in 2003, Riley was awarded the title of Fujifilm’s “1st International Roving Photographer.”  

 He was chosen by PENTAX to photograph that corporation’s Global Wall Calendar in 2009 and in the same year published a 24-page cover feature A Portrait of Sri Lanka for the Chinese edition of National Geographic Magazine.  A 220-page photo book, The Elegance of Santorini Style followed shortly thereafter.
