Today we’d like to introduce you to Jayden Miller.
Jayden, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I have loved photography since I was a child. At an event, special occasion or just for fun, there is always that person with a camera taking pictures. I was that kid! As an adult, I learned that I could use the talent that I felt I had and use it to make great images and obtain a profit. After practicing, taking courses and taking on some small photography jobs (and, of course, failing at some), I felt comfortable enough to move forward into larger responsibilities.
I have been a professional photographer for over ten years. I formerly managed several major photography studios in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area and now I have my own photography/videography business serving the Phoenix, Arizona area as well as Chicago, Illinois by appointment. Previously, I owned a chain of retail cellular phone stores in Chicago. In addition to my photography, I work in an educational capacity in a local school district.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Western Illinois University, a Master’s Degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology and started doctoral work at Colorado State University. I have attended many classes and workshops that have helped me excel in photography.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a photographer. My art is photography. Therefore, it requires a creative mind – and plenty of imagination. I am able to look at something ordinary, or even extraordinary, interpret or re-interpret it, capture the image and convey those interpretations into beautiful and meaningful photos.
I want people to say “wow” when they see my photos. I want them to be able to see the passion that I have for photography and my subjects. When I am photographing a subject, all that matters is the connection we have and the emotion we can create together.
As for my photography, while the essential technical skills are necessary to capture the image correctly, I strive to tell a story by using communication, emotion, and creativity.
How can artists connect with other artists?
Being an artist CAN be lonely! I have found that joining photography groups can be valuable in terms of getting to know others. Also, commenting on other photographers’ work by being supportive and offering to collaborate on projects can be very helpful in making connections.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
People can see my work at my website – www.jaydenmiller.com as well as on Instagram @jaydenmillerphotography and on Facebook @jaydenmillerphotography. You can support my work by liking and commenting and recommending me to others.
Articles, such as this one, also go a long way in supporting local artists!
