Photographer's Bio

A native Texan & UNT graduate, Scot Miller’s interest in photography began in the early 1970’s. Through his photography, he attempts to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of places such as Yosemite, Walden, the Maine Woods, the Texas Hill Country and the Great Trinity Forest in Dallas. 

Books to Scot’s credit include: Walden: 150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic (Houghton Mifflin, 2004), Cape Cod: Illustrated Edition of the American Classic (Houghton Mifflin, 2008) and My First Summer in the Sierra: 100th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2011) which received the prestigious 2011 Classic Award from the National Outdoor Book Awards.

In 2005 Scot collaborated with the Harvard Museum of Natural History to develop “Thoreau’s Walden: A Journey in Photographs by Scot Miller,” a traveling exhibition managed by the Cincinnati Museum Center. The exhibition features twenty-nine of his fine art prints from the Walden book and continues a multi-year museum tour across the country.  Additionally, Scot has been involved in a multi-year project photographing Yosemite's expansive wilderness with four other photographers in cooperation with Yosemite Conservancy. As a result, First Light: Five Photographers Explore Yosemite’s Wilderness was published in Summer 2009.  His fifth book, “Thoreau, The Maine Woods: A Photographic Journey Through an American Wilderness,” by Henry David Thoreau, photographs by Scot Miller, was published in Fall 2013 by Levenger Press. In November 2013, the Harvard Museum of Natural History opened "Thoreau's Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller," a major photography exhibition, featuring thirty-five of Scot's photogaphs from the book. The exhibition has been extended through February, 2015. His sixth book, Emerson, Muir, Thoreau: A Photographic Trilogy of American Wildness, will be published by Levenger Press in Fall 2015.

Scot was commissioned in 2005 by Booziotis & Company Architects and Mrs. Margaret McDermott to create and produce a triptych of three large (6 ft x 7 ft) aerial photographic prints for UTSW’s Biomedical Research facility. Scot’s photographs are in many Romano's Macaroni Grill restaurants around the world.  His fine prints have been featured in exhibitions at the Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge, MA, the Cincinnati Museum Center, Crystal Bridges Museum at the Massey in Bentonville, AR, the Center for Visual Arts in Denton, TX, Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding, CA, North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC, the North Carolina Forestry Museum in Whiteville, NC, the Thoreau Institute in Lincoln, MA, the Dallas Museum of Natural History, the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA, the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas, TX, Southwest Gallery in Dallas, TX, Sun to Moon Gallery in Dallas, TX, the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park, and Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) National Historical Park Visitor’s Center in Johnson City, TX.

Scot’s photography has been featured in publications including:  America’s Famous and Historic Trees, Texas Highways Magazine, America West Magazine, Cape Cod Life, D Magazine, National Wildlife, Steinway & Sons Magazine, Yosemite Magazine, Yosemite Fund Annual Reports, the National Park Service’s Yosemite Valley Plan and other Yosemite-related projects, and the National Park Service's Special Resource Study of Walden Pond and Woods.  D Magazine’s March 2012 issue featured an 8-page photo essay by Scot, On the Hunt, on Dallas’ new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.

Since the early 1990’s, Scot has carried a digital video (now HD) camera system into the field.  His footage has been used extensively in Yosemite Conservancy videos, in a video for the Walden Woods Project, narrated by Walter Cronkite, and in many news reports. He is a regular contributor to “CBS Sunday Morning” with Charles Osgood, for the “Moment in Nature” segment.

Scot is currently photographing in southwest Colorado, the Maine Woods, Yosemite National Park & the Sierra Nevada, the Ozarks and the Texas Hill Country where he is Artist-in-Park for Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, located in Johnson City and Stonewall, Texas, and the Great Trinity Forest & Trinity River watershed in Dallas.

Scot lives in Dallas, Texas.
