62-year old photographer Jody Miller has been dabbling in photography all her life, with most of her work consisting of breathtaking landscape shots.
Los Angeles, California-based Miller was only nine years old when she received her very first camera, a Kodak Brownie, but it wasn’t until her late teens that she finally decided to take the craft seriously.
In 1982, Miller was able to participate at a workshop by no less than Ansel Adams himself held in Camel, California. “The experience of serious study with some of the great photographers of our time gave me the desire to push myself to produce better and richer work with every passing year,” she said. Her arsenal, as listed by _I Still Shoot Film_ in a feature, include the Pentax 67II, Hasselblad, and a number of Holga and Diana cameras.
Miller, who came from a family of artists, is a designer/animator for Hollywood’s TV industry by profession. Although she also shoots in digital, Miller continues to shoot in film which she believes “continues to be an unbeatable medium for making art.” She was further quoted in abovementioned feature, “There is a softness, a ‘wetness’ if you will, to film that digital just does not have for me and never will.”

London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work.

In 2015 we had been fortunate enough to talk with photographers, with practices and insights unique from one another, from all over the globe. And not only were we able to see their works; we were also able to dig a little deeper and find out what makes each one of them tick. In this special recap, we present a handpicked selection of insightful quotes from some of our most memorable interviews this year.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
