Miles’ fascination with cameras began as a child with 35mm film. In these early days he spent endless nights experimentingwith light in long exposures on the family Pentax camera. A major focus of these shots was of the night sky, learning from hisuncle, the astronomer Malcolm Hartley. The image to the right is an example of this taken at age 14. These skills andfascination led him to becoming one of Australia’s leading time lapse photographers.
Miles is a passionate environmentalist, committed vegan and spends much of his spare time in the outdoors.
Miles has always been fascinated by stories and had a knack for telling them since he was a young child. This has wonderfully translated to film making and loves using this medium for sharing great stories.
