  • PhotoShelter template: Downtown
  • Member since: November 26, 2014
  • Location: Kensington, CA
  • Specialty and background: Jim Millett has been a working photographer since 1963 – and while he’s done some commercial work, he considers himself a true artist, putting his focus on his own portfolio – and not clients. Although mostly self-taught, he’s had the amazing opportunity to study under the greats such as  Jerry Uelsmann and Ruth Bernhard. He’s also had some “friendly encouragement” from Ansel Adams and Wynn Bullock. Jim has no plans to go digital, but says he’s “completely eclectic…to quote Imogen Cunningham: “I photograph anything that can be exposed to light.””
