About Anita Miller

The Photographer

“I tend to lose myself completely when I’m taking pictures. It’s like my camera becomes part of me and because of that, I’m able to capture a beautiful image.” ~ Anita Miller

Anita Miller is software engineer by day and fine art photographer by night. She is equally comfortable delivering sophisticated software systems for exacting clients and shooting abstracted flowers or close-ups of bumble bees. “Creatively,” she says, “there is less separation between the two worlds than you’d think. Both require a vision—and then the patience to see that vision evolve and come to fruition—no matter how long it takes.”

Miller sees herself as a listener/storyteller. Through the camera’s lens, subjects reveal themselves and are mulled over and assimilated intuitively. “I can tell almost immediately on looking through the viewfinder the story I want to tell or the vision I want to portray, which may or may not be immediately achievable. I spend hours taking photographs of the same subject to capture that one image or series of images I had in my mind’s eye.”

Nature in its broadest sense inspires most of Miller’s photographs. She enjoys capturing the transformations that occur in the natural world from minute to minute and season to season. “Because nature is always changing, each image feels fresh, like it’s the first picture I’ve ever taken.” Miller also enjoys documenting her travels. These photographs reveal almost abstracted views of winding city streets and hilly vistas, reflecting the labyrinthine mystery of places unknown.

Miller maintains a library of nearly 50,000 of her images, a testament to her long relationship with the medium. The time spent photographing is equaled in the studio. Miller is an interpreter of her own photographs, utilizing various editing techniques to ensure the original vision is properly translated to paper. “My greatest satisfaction is when viewers make an emotional or intellectual connection with a photograph that mirrors my original intention.”

If photography is her calling, Miller was fortunate to find it at the age of 12, when she received her first camera as a birthday present. “I honestly couldn’t tell you what kind of camera it was and it really doesn’t matter. From that point on I was obsessed with capturing anything and everything with whatever camera was at hand.” Miller began to pursue photography as a vocation in 2011, when she opened her business, Nature’s Images by Design. Since then, her photography has seen in numerous virtual and brick & mortar photography exhibitions and she has curated several virtual exhibitions for fPOE (Female Photographers of Etsy). Miller’s photography has also been selected for inclusion in celebrity gift bags at major award show gift lounges, including the Golden Globes, the Oscars and the Cannes Film Festival. Miller lives with her husband in Herndon, Virginia, outside Washington, D.C.
