Biography

Bob Miller is a film director and photographer with roots in the American South. As a visual storyteller specializing in non-fiction, he provides regional coverage of contemporary social issues for a wide range of editorial clients. As a film director, Bob extends the same journalistic ethos to commercial storytelling, crafting original content to promote reputable brands. Bob accepts commissions from anyone who has a desire to leverage authentic storytelling. It is his conviction that a good story transcends barriers – pushing us beyond our own experience into the reality that we are all characters living similar narratives, facing like challenges

"Bob's unique place in the market is his humanity – his ability to capture that, and to breath it into whatever story he tells."
    – Ken Harper, Director of the Newhouse Center for Global Engagement
