Still Photography

Even today, the power of a still photograph has never diminished. If anything, it's become more vital. Your headshot is the first thing people see as they decide if they want to do business with you. From headshots, product, event, documentary or behind the scenes photography – each image tells a story. Let us tell yours.

Our Team

Nadia Borowski Scott

Nadia Borowski Scott

Creative Director

Nadia has been a visual storyteller since she first picked up her mother’s Pentax K1000 and began developing photos in the basement darkroom of her childhood home in Maryland. She parlayed that love of photography into an award-winning career as a photojournalist, covering everything from presidential campaigns and the first Gulf War to quiet stories and unsung heroes in her own neighborhood. She believes everyone has a story worth telling if we’re just quiet enough to listen. While driving to assignments she would listen to NPR and became fascinated with how audio enhanced stories, whether it was the gravelly voice of a subject or the crunch of dried leaves underfoot, and that launched her expansion into multimedia. She is someone who never stops learning, and when not recording or editing a story for Alchemy MediaWorks she is usually either listening to the latest podcast or devouring another online training seminar.

Chuck Scott

Chuck Scott

Managing Director

As a young boy in rural New Hampshire, Chuck listened to Red Sox games on the radio and read the work of some of the best sportswriters of the day in the pages of The Boston Globe. That inspired him to pursue a career in journalism, first as a writer, then as an editor at news organizations including The Orange County Register, Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune. What drives him are human stories. Every great story connects with the audience on an emotional level, and finding the best way to architect each story is his passion, no matter the platform. When he is not supervising the creative storytelling at Alchemy MediaWorks, Chuck can usually be found exploring scenic hiking trails in California or checking out a new band at a local club.

« As the CEO of a startup company, I believed that hiring a photojournalist to cover our story was vital. Nadia provided invaluable services that included everything from product, headshot and live event photography to company communication videos to documentary films of our work, including a 30-minute feature film detailing NuVasive’s history. As our company rapidly grew, so did our visual needs, and Nadia continually expanded her skill set to exceed expectations with every challenging request we threw her way.
