Photographer goes digital

Doug MillerDoug Miller of Elite Photography is a bit different from other photographers in that he uses all digital equipment, including a $7,000 printer with which he does all of his own printing.

Miller enjoys the speed and versatility of digital photography which he has done as a business for two years.

Miller used digital technology to create a family portrait. At a family reunion, one member was unable to attend, so Miller took a picture of him alone. He then superimposed him into the picture with the family, making him seem to be a natural part of the original photo. "I really love a challenge," he said.

According to Miller the only drawback to digital equipment is it is quite expensive.

Miller does photography out of his home for high school seniors, weddings, families, babies, and many different school activities.

Miller, who grew up in Cleveland, enjoys the community and is interested in civic-minded photo opportunities, like Santa Claus photos, hockey pictures, and prom photos.

Miller has lived in the Paynesville area for five years. He used to be self employed as a cement finisher, but a shoulder injury stopped him from continuing. He had always enjoyed taking pictures, so he asked his father-in-law, Roger Brossard of Koronis Photography, to help him get started in photography.

Miller also works full time at Ted's RV Land in Paynesville and lives west of Paynesville with his wife, Jamie, and their two kids, Pete and Hattie.
