With my tenure in the photographic business I’ve done many types of photography however one avenue I really enjoy is performance and promo photography for bands and solo artists. Perhaps its the musician in me but making awesome images for artists resonates with me. A few examples of my work are shown here. I’m currently looking for other groups and singer songwriters to expand my portfolio of local musicians and artists. If you are in need of updated and cutting edge imagery for your website or fan page give me a call to discuss the possibilities.

Hudson Valley based singer-songwriter Kyle James Miller began playing professionally at fifteen, cutting his teeth on folk and blues standards while writing his own music. Miller is currently studying English Literature at the State University of New York at New Paltz and plays frequently in the New Paltz area.Kyle James Miller has performed at the historic Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs as well as The Falcon in Marlboro, NY and is featured in the Library of Congress performing for Caffe Lena’s Bob Dylan 70th Birthday Tribute Concert. In November 2011 he will begin production of a full length LP in conjunction with New Paltz based Salvation Recording Company. He is hopeful that the album will be noticed by a few passionate individuals and disregarded by everyone else.
Miller began playing the guitar several years ago and playing harmonica soon after that. He discovered folk and blues music while listening to his fathers extensive music collection and artists like Eric Clapton, Levon Helm, Bob Dylan and JJ Cale. The discovery opened up his eyes to what he considers the bedrock of american music: folk, blues, rock n’ roll, and country. His interest in those genres would ultimately lead to many attempts at writing his own songs. In 2008, he released an album of original songs entitled “Better Off.” Since that disc he has continued to write songs but until recently has yet to compile another disc. He hopes to put a band together of like minded, capable musicians. This search is proving difficult however. He has also been continuing to perform in order to develop his own distinct style as both a writer and performer.
