the five mile grace – a matthew miller photography joint bio picture

Welcome to my Blog!

It started and ended very quickly. I took a photography course my junior year at North Gwinnett High school. 2 weeks later I was kicked out, and thats what I thought would the end of my interest of photography. Anyhow, many years later I found myself embarking on my first tour out of the country to Europe with my band ,Most Precious Blood, and for the trip, my mother bought me my first digital camera.I wanted to document every part of the journey(little did i know that i would tour europe a total of five times in the coming years).

Its been almost 6 years since that tour. I have traveled all over the US more times than I can remember.I've been overseas to Brazil, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, and all over Europe. Now I've dropped anchor after living in Brooklyn NY and doing the band full time, I bought a house with my lovely lady(and amazing tattooer) Danielle.We have two midget vegan pitbull puppies named Trainwreck and Justice. We just bought a beautiful home in East Atlanta Georgia. Life is really looking good these days.

I created this blog to show the kind of Photography that I have been doing recently, and also to have a platform to show what is going on in my life. I am available for hire when im not working with the best damn wedding photographers in Atlanta at OUR LABOR OF LOVE. Please get in touch or leave me a comment if you like what you see, or you want to set up a shoot.

the phone call you never expect to hear

so saturday i get a call from my brother. my mother was on her way to our lake house, driving my car to store it there while im in new york. she was going through a traffic light when somone decided to take a left turn right in front of her. she smashed into thier passenger door head on. she was lucky. two cars behind were an EMT and two nurses that just ended their shifts at the hospital nearby. she was aparently so scared. she couldnt breathe and was crying because she thought she was going to die. its so hard to hear things like that because i still think that my parents are so untouchable. like nothing bad can really happen to them. so at the hospital they saw that she had broken her ankle, shinbone and was bruised up beyond belief. her hands were swollen and bruised and her neck and ribs were really sore. a few hours later my father called. ive never heard him cry and just hearing his voice quiver was soooo hard for me to take. he said she was in teh MRI cat scan thinga nd they were checking out her neck. they feared broken bones.and with that news i had to go to sleep. trying to keep a clear head i tried to stay busy yesterday and just cruise they city…about 6 oclock i get a call from my dads cell. it was my mother. so good to hear her voice. she said shes gonna be OK but theres alot of work to be done. she has broken bones in her neck. shell have to wear a neck cast for up to 10 weeks…possibly a halo( a metal frame screwed into your head that rests on your neck so you cant turn your head) and she wont be able to walk for almost 10 weeks with her broken shin and ankle. this is so hard for me to even imagine. my parents werre on the verge of selling their house, and within the next 3 weeks they were supposed to retire and just live up at the lake house. now i have no idea whats supposed to happen. i cant believe there were arms length away form just sitting and relaxing for so long, with no work and no worries and now there is all this mess. i wish there was something i could do. my dad siad not to worry and that hes taking care of her and that when they bring her home theyll have a nurse there to watch over her. but its hard for me not to abandon everything here and just be with her…but he said its importatnt that i take care of the things ineed to do here( i leave for tour for 2 months starting tomorrow) and just stay in touch. so many thought running through my head……
i love you mom
