Alastair Miller is an award-winning British photographer based in Paris. His first true passion was the sea. After a brief career as a navigator in the Merchant Navy, he began photographing opera and classical music events and venues in London. He then spent more than a decade in Paris, photographing people and places for lifestyle magazines and newspapers, principally The Times and Sunday Times. Travel and nature are dear to his heart. “I always search for the unexpected, the small detail in the larger landscape—whether a drop of rain on glass or the light across a sandstone facade.” Among his favorite subjects are the Norwegian mountains and fjords, canals of Venice at dawn, rooftops of Barcelona and church domes of St. Petersburg.
