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.

here are a couple more from the aquarium in new zealand. ive always been a fan of the tiger fiish ever since i saw naked gun and lt. frank drebon stuck the fish with a pen behnid his back. classic. this thing was a pain in the ass to get a good picture of. there was not really any light in the tank, and i couldnt use a flash because it would reflect on the glass. therefore i had to make myself as still as a tripod(im sure i looked damn silly) and try not to move with the shutter bein open so long. this is the only one that really came out, the rest we very very blurry. the picture below was taken in an underwater tunnel. shit was very cool. it was about to be feeding time so there was an opening at the top of the tank where they would drop in food. thats what created the light effect at the top of the photo. ps. i wanna have a pool with a stingray one day.

these are a couple of photos from las vegas. the one to the right is where we stayed, its called the stratosphere. the red light thing on top is actually a ride that shoots you to the top at a zillion miles an hour. i rode it 3 times and nearly vomited each time. the photo on the bottom was taken out of the window of our hotel room in the same building. the windows had somekind of double panes so you couldnt go too crazy and throw the chair out the window, but it made for a cool effect when i used the fisheye lens.this was probabaly the nicest hotel weve ever stayed in and it only cost 20 something dollars. i love vegas.

these are a few pictures from inside an aqarium in new zealand. we were lucky enough to get the hookup from a local core kid who worked there, and got a “backsatge” tour of the pengiun exibit. notice this is a point where i was using the fisheye lens way too much. ive calmed down with it since then. while taking these pictures i had to be wary of a trolly that would come by every few minutes of people checking out the pengiuns.if i didnt watch out, or have people looking for me, im sure i would have gotten runover. pretty high octane photo journalisum.
