About the Author:
Roger Miller has worked as a commercial photographer in Baltimore for the last twenty-seven years. In his assignments he has photographed everything from the Blue Angels to hot dogs, from Mt. Fuji in Japan to the Champs Elysees in Paris, and everything in Maryland from Muddy Creek Falls in Garrett County to the Boardwalk in Ocean City.
Roger is probably best known for the books he has published. His first book on Baltimore was released in 1983. He has since photographed, produced and published twenty-one other books. To date he has sold over 140,000 copies of his books. Roger, through his commercial photography and books, has become an expert on Maryland. With over 550,000 slides on file- a large amount of them on Baltimore and Maryland, he is a major source of stock photography in the region. With the production of a new book on Delaware historic markers in the last couple of years, he has developed a large amount of stunning image of Delaware.
At the same time, his travels and assignments have allowed him to develop vast amounts of stock images on Europe, Japan and most regions of the United States and Canada. From approximately 1997 to date, he has also begun to develop great depth of images on the United States military while creating a book on the US Naval Academy and beginning a book on the US Coast Guard Academy. He also started work on a book about the US Coast Guard Barque Eagle and will have some very dynamic sailing photos during 2002.
