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.

autumn in asheville.

sometimes its nice to get away from the computer and go outside to enjoy what mother nature has cooked up for us. ive always heard stories about the rad vegan food that asheville NC has to offer and with our pal from LA in town, we packed up the car, picked up my brother and made a trip to see the wonderful fall colors, eat awesome food, and hang out in a log cabin. i also figured it would be a good idea to bring my camera….and i was right!







burning fight – california

after the shows in chicago, i didnt think the week could get any better, i was WRONG. i got to hang with my homie rob and his wife diana and their 2 amazing pugs. ate insane amounts of vegan food and enjoyed the beautiful san diego weather. there was a secret show at the che cafe, it holds about 200 or so people….and about 500 were in line. the show was insane and i had to hide behind the drums et with my camera on a monopod just so i wouldnt get destroyed! the 2nd show was at the glasshouse and that venue holds about 1200 people, the show was sold out and was fucking intense. every band gave it their all and it was the perfect send off for unbroken. im a bit sad knowing that its the last time ill get to see alot of these bands, but the whole experience really got me thinking about what was so special about that period of time that these bands were around. it brought back lots of memories and redefined all of the things i learned through this scene and made me realize that there are still tons of people on the same page. thanks you again so much to everyone involved in the past 2 weekends.

here is a link to almost every photo i took at the burning fight shows, they are a quick, harsh edit, but i wanted to share them so everyone could see the intensity of these shows. – CLICK HERE!

burning fight

its late thursday night as i type this from my friend robs apartment in san diego. ive been editing photos almost non stop since i witnessed the greatest hardcore show ive seen in many many years. i saw lots of old friends and watched some of my favorite bands play one last time. this past weekend reminded me that some of us still believe in what made this music so fucking special to us as we grew up and how its still relevant as we continue our lives. thanks to everyone who made this whole magical thing happen. and to think that ill be doing this all over again this weekend in LA is blowing my mind. i feel so honored to be a part of it all. thank you thank you thank you!! here are my favorite images from the show in chicago. i hope they can hold a candle to what went down at the shows.
