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.

burning fight

its late thursday night as i type this from my friend robs apartment in san diego. ive been editing photos almost non stop since i witnessed the greatest hardcore show ive seen in many many years. i saw lots of old friends and watched some of my favorite bands play one last time. this past weekend reminded me that some of us still believe in what made this music so fucking special to us as we grew up and how its still relevant as we continue our lives. thanks to everyone who made this whole magical thing happen. and to think that ill be doing this all over again this weekend in LA is blowing my mind. i feel so honored to be a part of it all. thank you thank you thank you!! here are my favorite images from the show in chicago. i hope they can hold a candle to what went down at the shows.

May 8, 2009 - 5:17 am Tony Price - Incredible weekend with incredible photos. Thanks.

May 8, 2009 - 6:15 am Megan - I'm really trying to cut back on the swearing. I can really cuss like a sailor at times. Let's just say my jaw has been dropped and profanity has been flowing. You can really feel the crowd's energy, taste the sweat, and hear the music leap at you from these images. Really nice work Matt.

May 8, 2009 - 8:40 am Tony Tripoli - Beautiful beautiful photos... What were you shooting with? (Glass/lighting)

May 8, 2009 - 8:41 am jessika - god damn dude. WOW. these photos are fucking off the hook. it makes me sad that i couldnt be there but im really glad that you got the opportunity to document it. you and your work are top notch man. love you and miss you and danielle! i hope we get to hang sometime this summer! <3

May 8, 2009 - 8:49 am alex - INSANE! I am so bummed I did not get to go to this. But, the intensity and ridiculous power coming from these photos makes me feel like I was there. Great work, can't wait to see the rest and the Cali photos!

May 8, 2009 - 8:57 am Dennis - seriously, these are probably the best show photos i've seen in a long long time. i'm definitely looking up to you. what lens did you use?

May 8, 2009 - 9:07 am Justin - Incredible shots. I am amazed and intrigued with these photos. Great work and mad props!

May 8, 2009 - 9:08 am Justin - Oh yea, How do you keep from getting your gear broken? AB hanging on balcony somehow?

May 8, 2009 - 9:08 am Monica Z - Also, it was so awesome to finally meet you! We would love to come to ATL sometime to hangout:)

May 8, 2009 - 9:29 am Bobby Altman - My boy Andre Pope turned me on to your stuff and I have to say. I love it.

May 8, 2009 - 9:38 am Hil - excellent shots...great capture of the moments - good shite Matt

May 8, 2009 - 9:49 am Lauren - dammit!!!!! i'm forever envious of you now for being able to see Chamberlain. i hate you matty!!!!

May 8, 2009 - 9:57 am JawkDNA - Can I get a God Damn? Matt these are fucking amazing. I love you brother!

May 8, 2009 - 12:37 pm Anders - Don't know these bands, but these photos makes me want to listen to them and that's what great live shots will do. They are all great and it's VERY refreshing to see live photos shot from the band's perspective. The engaged crowd makes these photos come alive in ways you rarely see. Awesome inspirational work!

May 8, 2009 - 12:42 pm Mickey - Thanks. These are fucking fantastic.

May 8, 2009 - 1:06 pm Carter - Damn, these are great. BTW, nice pic of Tony during 108.

May 8, 2009 - 1:15 pm robert - My goodness. Great photos. That is a DARK venue.... your flash setup must be hardcore!

May 8, 2009 - 1:39 pm xtimx - re:mr. jawk...goddamn.

May 9, 2009 - 6:29 am Danielle - i love this man! how amazing has your work become, it blows my mind. i really like what the one guy said about not even knowing the bands and feeling the energy off the photos. you have captured a moment but have made it your own as well, that is what makes you good at what you do. oxoxo D

May 12, 2009 - 1:52 pm Myke C-Town - Man, these are awesome pictures, Matt. I was already depressed for missing this and these pictures make it THAT much worse. Ugh.

May 15, 2009 - 9:18 am Erika - These photos are insanely amazing. You have some serious skill, dude. I've been waiting for this post because I knew it would be great, but you just blew my mind. Thank you.

May 27, 2009 - 5:24 pm Rich - Amazing Matt! Thanks.

May 28, 2009 - 11:35 am melo - Seriously Matt... WTF? These are sick. I'm guessing some strobes to either side of the stage? How the hell are you getting those shutter speeds needed to freeze the action? Awesome.
