Neil Miller

Neil A. Miller was born in 1945 and raised in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. He first became interested in photography in high school. Early work experience was photography related and included summers as publicity photographer for a local racetrack. After completing a B.F.A. in Photography at Ohio University, the US Navy offered photographic experience well beyond his expectations. Assignments ranged from documenting NATO Exercises in the North Atlantic to earthquake assistance in Peruvian Andes. Following the Navy and a move to Arizona, his career took him into television news videography and into teaching photography at the college level. Art on the other hand became Neil’s mode of expressing life and resulted in an M.F.A. from Arizona State University. Participation in the Ansel Adams and Friends of Photography workshops as a student and assistant was most influential in Miller’s creative career. The opportunity to study with Wynn Bullock, Gary Winogrand, Jerry Uelsmann, Fredrick Sommer, W. Eugene Smith along with Ansel Adams and other masters opened a vision for his future. He has been drawing from these lessons to develop his personal body of work, ever since. Neil is a member of the prestigious, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Rocky Mountain Southwest chapter’s Silver Circle Society.
