Talking Art and Life with Voyage LA
Since then, I graduated from college with a BFA in Photography and worked hard to develop my photo career. Over the last couple of years, I’ve had the amazing luck to work with some incredible, widely-recognized clients and am still working to gradually build my career working with brands and clients I love.

Working as a photographer has definitely had its ups and downs — and I’m sure it will continue to have its ups and downs, as that’s the nature of the industry. My passion has never waned, though, and every day I choose to accept those challenges because I love what I do and I’m incredibly thankful for having the opportunity to make photographs for a living.
— "Art & Life with Erin Marie Miller" | Interview with Voyage LA Magazine, August 2018

I was recently interviewed by Voyage LA Magazine about my career as a photographer, my inspirations, struggles and victories, and life in general. You can read the full interview here.

Above It All

Some favorite shots from my recent social media campaign shoots with yoga expert Dana Fares for Yoga Before Coffee.

AVI ROSS GROUP

It's always a pleasure working with Avi Ross Group on their stunning home renovation projects. This beautiful historic Craftsman gem, tucked away in the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park, is finally finished and up for sale. Every place they sell comes with the beautiful furniture that was hand-chosen for the space. They're not simply selling a house -- they're selling a home. You can check out their beautiful, perfectly designed and hand-renovated properties at their website.

THE ROSSI PALM SPRINGS

I wrote back in February about my recent shoot for The Rossi Palm Springs, a boutique hotel in the heart of a desert oasis. It's so wonderful to see my photos gracing their beautiful website. If you're ever looking for an amazing place to escape from the world into a weekend (or week!) of luxury, I cannot recommend a better place to do it than The Rossi.

The Rossi Hotel

Last week, I had the pleasure of being hired to photograph the newly renovated suites and grounds of The Rossi Hotel in Palm Springs, California. The hotel -- a boutique resort tucked away on a quiet street just a few blocks from the resort town's bustling downtown area -- was a gorgeous, relaxing paradise. Here are a few of my favorite images from my shoot.

LOOKING BACK ON 2017

This year was a big one, filled with lots of extreme ups and downs. Photography has always been my rock -- the one thing that keeps me going even in the midst of chaos. I was lucky to get to work with a variety of amazing, supportive, wonderful clients this year -- ranging from huge corporations like Mercedes-Benz of North America, to corporate restaurant chains like Rubio's Coastal Grill and Bibigo Fresh Korean Kitchen, to smaller independent brands like High Ruin, as well as wonderful nonprofits like the Orange County Small Business Development Center as they featured local businesses that are doing awesome things, like Inland Wharf Brewing Company.

I'm genuinely looking forward to 2018 -- wondering about the challenges and inspirations the new year will bring is always my favorite part about New Year's Eve. Here's to the passing of a year full of growth and amazing opportunities; and a toast to whatever wonderful things 2018 has in store.

I'm also sending out all the best to everyone reading this -- may the new year bring you all the challenges and opportunities you need to grow into the person you want to become, to live the life you've imagined. Here's to 2018, and exciting new chapters.

HIGH RUIN

At the end of summer, I was hired by High Ruin to photograph a lifestyle campaign for the launch of their new home decor line, inspired by the Victorian Old West. Their amazingly lovely and inspiring owner, Audrey Richter, rented a gorgeous house in Joshua Tree and we spent an afternoon in the desert creating magic with our absolutely beautiful model, Keziah. Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the day. I'll share more soon, because I can't even explain how excited I am to finally be able to share these images with the world.

SIMPLETHINGS

A few months ago, I was hired by Simplethings, a local independent restaurant chain. Here are a few of my favorite shots from my day spent photographing each of their three locations around Los Angeles.

MERCEDES-BENZ DRIVE CAMPAIGN

I was excited to learn that some of the lifestyle images I photographed for the renowned Mercedes-Benz DRIVE Technician Training program have gone live on their website. You can view more about the program and company at the Mercedes-Benz DRIVE website.

A Place To Call Home

I was recently hired by the Avi Ross Group to photograph interiors and portraits of Avalon Rossi, co-owner of the property management group, in her freshly completed project home in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Everything in the beautiful two-story home has been lovingly restored and designed from scratch to match Avalon's vision of the perfect home. With the interior design portion of the project finished, the house is now on the market and available to view by appointment. The house is light, airy, and welcoming and was an absolute pleasure to photograph. You can visit their website, or follow them on Instagram @avirossgroup.

One of my favorite images from my recent shoot for Mercedes-Benz DRIVE mechanic training program. For the campaign, I traveled to the luxury automobile company's Learning and Performance Center in Long Beach, California, where I documented two days of courses in their state-of-the-art training facility.
