Miles Keep recently won first place in the Still-Life/food category in the 25th Anniversary Advertising Photographers of America (APA) national photography contest, Silver to Pixels!
This will come as no surprise to his clients who uniformly speak highly of th down-to-earth photographer. “My inspiration and motivation comes from real life,” Keep says, referring to his family that includes a three-year-old son and six-year-old daughter. To unwind, on weekends he rides motorcycles off road. The precision and air of danger have drawn him to motocross since he was a kid.
Miles claims he’s not philosophical, but one trip through his web portfolio of streamlined images – neat juxtapositions of stark yet visually fulfilling objects – proves him wrong. His philosophy of less is more has been applied to work for a wide range of clients from Apple to Zia Cosmetics.
