City Rain

I had the chance to take advantage of the rare rainy weather a couple of weeks ago with Austin Carr (Mavrick Models) in Pasadena, Calif. Everyone has been complaining about the weather, but I love it. Rainclouds create perfectly diffused light — the entire city is currently a soft box!

Talking Art and Life with Voyage LA
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.

AVI ROSS GROUP

It's always a pleasure working with Avi Ross Group on their stunning home restoration 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 property they sell comes with beautiful furniture that was hand-selected for the space so that you can move in to a perfectly restored home. You can check out their beautiful, hand-renovated properties on their website.

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.

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.
