Hello all! I’m Jody Miller. I’ve been a photographer for most of my life. I mainly shoot the natural world around me, occasionally dabbling in fine art concept or portrait photography.
I find great comfort and peace when I’m behind the camera, making images wherever I go, shooting everything from the mundane and quotidian to the sublime and grandiose.
Weather and storms are a particular favorite of mine, as well as the abandoned and forlorn places and the beautiful animals I find on my travels. I love the mystery I find in shadows and the night and make many landscapes under a full moon or under the stars.
My kit is minimal but diverse. I shoot with Nikon bodies, currently a Nikon D850, and an assortment of lenses:
The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, as well as a Nikon 85mm f/1.4, and a 28-300mm zoom f/5.6.
I also use many toy and pinhole cameras. The ones pictured are some of my favorites:
The Diana camera, the Holga panoramic camera with an enlarger lens, a ZeroImage wooden pinhole, and a 4×5 wooden pinhole camera.
A particular favorite is the Fujipet Thunderbird, a 1950s plastic camera that makes unique 120 images.
