About J. Ryan Miller


For me, shooting photos and learning about the art (and craft) of photography filled a space in my creative life that was left open when I moved to Columbus.  Working backwards from cell phone camera, through digital cameras; to film SLRs, and finally point-and-shoot 35mm cameras, I followed a deconstructionist approach to technique and composition to a point of freeing myself of the constrictions of “too much technology”.  Taking these experiments and ways into consideration, I began to re-investigate previous modes; things like street, portraiture, and even commercial photography.  I’m currently interested in shooting more people and their environments, whether from a performance standpoint or classic portrait photography.
