Roland Miller, a Chicago native, studied photography at Utah State University earning his B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees. For 14 years, he taught photography at Brevard Community College (now Eastern Florida State College) in Cocoa, Florida, where he was first exposed to many nearby NASA launch sites. He then taught at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois for six years before becoming dean of its Communication Arts, Humanities and Fine Arts division in 2008. Miller retired from higher education in 2018 to work full-time on his aerospace photography.
In 2016, Miller’s project, Abandoned in Place: Preserving America’s Space History, documenting the deactivated and repurposed space launch and test facilities around the United States was published by the University of New Mexico Press.
Images from Miller’s Space Shuttle documentary project, Orbital Planes, have been exhibited at the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach, Florida and at The National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida
Miller is currently completing a project, Interior Space, with Italian Astronaut, Paolo Nespoli, to collaboratively photograph the interior of the International Space Station.
