“For 11 years I’ve been lucky enough to call Peter Read Miller a mentor and friend, I have always appreciated Peter’s impeccable attention to detail. Peter is incredibly intelligent, kind and well-spoken. It’s no surprise that his talent for capturing athletes in unique, storytelling moments landed him more than 100 Sports Illustrated covers, and his keen eye for breathtaking imagery puts him in a group of all-time greats.”

“There are very few photographers at the top of their field who are actually willing to share their time and knowledge to help others develop their skills. Peter Read Miller is one of those rare individuals. I’ve had the opportunity to attend Peter’s workshops in both Denver and Atlanta. Peter is the consummate professional and he makes sure that every photographer has the chance to learn what’s needed to produce quality images. Peter provides honest, but constructive criticism.”
