Samantha Miller, Ventura Member Since June 2014 Artist Statement I'm a young fine art photographer. I have taken all the photo's you see in my shop and on my website/blog. I put a lot of of love and care into each image I create. I still shoot a lot of 120mm film with my Mamiya 645. I shoot Nikon for all my digital photo's. I spend a lot of time traveling and hiking to find the perfect locations.
I fell in love with the photographic process at a young age. I got my first Nikon 35mm film camera at age 14. I love spending time in the darkroom. I am obsessed with the the scientific process of developing film. Analog photography has a special place in my heart.
I studied photography at Brooks Institute graduating in 2011. I got to learn everything about photography from some of the best pro photographers in the world. I use what I learned to create high quality unique images. I have spent the last few years traveling around the western United States chasing beautiful light and landscapes.
I love the great outdoors. I'm an active hiker with a great appreciation for nature. One of my favorite places to explore is the California mountains and Yosemite National park. I live right on the beach, allowing me to spend a lot of time wandering around with my camera capturing beautiful seascapes. I'm always on the look out for exotic and rare flowers to photograph.
My photograph's have been featured in art galleries and music festivals. Please contact me with any gallery inquiries. I'm an active photo blogger you can find daily updates at.- www.sammyphoto.com/blog
