“Scot Miller’s photography has formed the basis of numerous books, including Walden: The 150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition; Thoreau, The Maine Woods: A Photographic Journey through an American Wilderness, My First Summer in the Sierra: 100th Anniversary Illustrated Edition, winner of a National Outdoor Book Award; and Emerson, Muir, Thoreau: A Photographic Trilogy of American Wildness. He is a passionate advocate for conservation and, through his photography and videography, attempts to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of wild places and open spaces.
Scot is a frequent contributor to the “Moment in Nature” videos, broadcast nationally on Emmy Award-winning CBS Sunday Morning. His photographic and video collaborations include work with Yosemite Conservancy, the Walden Woods Project, Groundwork Dallas, the Association to Preserve Cape Cod and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
Scot lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Marilyn, where they own and operate Sun to Moon Gallery, a fine art photography gallery. ”
“I produced this short in response to a request from a teacher who organizes a Chautauqua program at Greensburg High School in Indiana twice a year (I was a presenter there in April of last year). I received this email from him in early April…
“Due to the virus, we cannot currently go into the high school. We are able to send taped morning announcements which helps. As a part of that, I have started a Positive Moment campaign, I am contacting noteworthy people to tape positive comments to the students of Greensburg High School. I have a question and I am 100% okay if it is not good timing – could you make a moment of nature for them? Even something in the backyard.”
How could I resist? I love doing inspirational things for school kids. This video was my response.
I have been following the Maine Outdoor Film Festival for several years, but this is the first time I entered. I am honored to be a finalist and appreciate the opportunity MOFF provides to outdoor film makers.”
