In-Person Learning

Do fears around photographing people stop you from making the pictures you want? Has the pandemic put your photography on pause like so much of our lives? If the experience of photographing people was difficult before the pandemic, now it can feel impossible, but it’s not.

Greg Miller’s unique teaching method works to connect your purpose with daily picture making while giving you the technical tools needed to make memorable photographs. Through class assignments, critiques and detailed instruction, Greg guides students to find what is most important to them at this moment in time and build strategies for making pictures happen on a regular basis by overcoming common fears. Students will be encouraged to photograph people wherever they might find them – on the street, meeting friends or with family – but to use current limitations as inspiration and opportunities. A portion of class will deal directly with the fear of talking to strangers and solutions for communicating your ideas to the person you want to photograph. In this way, Greg helps students enhance their photographic intention.

This workshop will also focus on portraiture and its context within historical and contemporary photography. Additionally topics discussed will be mechanics of creating a better environmental portrait, the ethics of documentary work, and model consent forms.


Greg Miller (b. 1967, Nashville, Tennessee) is an American fine art photographer and Guggenheim Fellow who uses the serendipity of chance meetings with strangers and large format street photography to build insightful, narrative photographs.
