Scott Miles earned his BA in Industrial/Scientific Photography at Brooks Institute of Photography in 1982, and he graduated from Boise State University with a MS in Education, Educational Technology in 2005. In between his Brooks graduation and earning his Master’s degree, Scott worked as an agricultural photographer providing research support for Cornell University, and later began his own business in Connecticut specializing in architectural photography.
In 1992, Scott purchased a commercial photography studio in Stamford, Connecticut, and broadened his services to include product/advertising photography. In 1996 he partnered with a graphic designer and transitioned to large-format digital capture in the studio. The studio offered a full range of services for the production of marketing projects.
In the fall of 2002, Scott returned to Brooks Institute to become a full-time faculty member in the BFA Professional Photography and MFA Photography programs. While teaching studio lighting and advertising photography classes for many years, he developed educational technology resources for students and lead major curriculum revision initiatives.
In recent years, Scott has focused on teaching in the area of scientific imaging. His students and colleagues have shown him that science inspires the creation of art. He has explored the intersection of science and visual art for several years now, and is excited about future explorations.
In addition to teaching, Scott engages in video production projects and fine art photography.
