Dr. Alan Mills is a native of Miamisburg, Ohio. His skills as a baseball player earned him a scholarship at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio where he earned his BS degree in Technology. After graduation, Alan traveled to Montana to play professional baseball in the San Francisco Giants’ minor league system. At the end of his first season, Alan suffered a knee injury that ended his career as a professional athlete.
Alan decided to continue his education. He completed his Master’s degree in Education at his alma mater and taught high school and coached baseball for several years. Alan earned his doctorate in Education from the University of Cincinnati and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Technology at Berea College. For over two decades he has traveled throughout the country capturing images of our national parks. It is Alan’s goal to visit and photograph every national park in America.
Recently, Alan has focused his camera on local places in Madison County including Anglin Falls, Indian Fort, and Owsley Fork. These wondrous landscapes, waterfalls, and reservoirs cannot help but inspire. They are places of magnificent beauty to be enjoyed alone or with a friend. Alan combines old and new technologies to create his prints and uses a new style of printer, which should allow them to last more than 100 years.
Alan is a member of the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen.
Alan’s photographs are available at the Berea College Book Store and at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea.
