Internationally acclaimed Wildlife and Nature Photographer, Russell Millner
We are thrilled to present Internationally acclaimed Wildlife and Natural World Photographer, Russell Millner. Growing up in Africa myself, and spoilt with more safari trips than I could count, I know how difficult it is to achieve what Russell does with a camera lense. The beauty of what he creates is mesmerising and enormously evocative – there’s almost no need to go on Safari if you have one of Millner’s images to take in throughout the day.
Wildlife and the natural world have been a lifelong interest for Millner, and it is through the medium of photography that he has chosen to share this experience. Some of this is through digital presentations and much through more conventional routes.
Technical skill meets creative endeavour
Russell says of his work, ‘I was fortunate enough in my highly technical first career to be able to travel widely across all seven continents and during that time to be exposed to some of the most influential wildlife photographers. This focused my pursuit of unique imagery, much of which has been heavily dedicated towards disappearing species and the endangered world. This has now been transformed into a second career as a professional wildlife photographer where I can use the technical skills I’ve previously embraced to facilitate a more artistic development.
My images are usually large and produced with a contemporary feel, often on Chromaluxe or by conventional prints onto art papers. Chromaluxe is a relatively novel process that produces intensely sharp colour or black and white images on aluminium with outstanding depth and intensity of colour. The images are produced by a dye sublimation technique and are archival and highly resilient without any further coating or glass. They are also light and allow for the production of unusually large images at reasonable prices.’
Millner has been exhibited in London, Berlin, Barcelona, The Hague, Cumbria and shortly in Milan, with images on the front covers of magazines and in textbooks. Recently featured in the BBC Wildlife Calendar and commended in the ‘Travel Photographer of the Year’ competition. Currently shortlisted in the ‘Bird Photographer of the Year’.
A donation from the sales of his images is made to The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
What is the Artists Appreciation Initiative?
Here at Lindi Reynolds Interior Design we are thrilled to have Russell Millner as part of our Artists Appreciation Initiative. This initiative came about as a result of us recognising the importance of art in luxury Interior Design. Without art, not matter how well thought out and executed a scheme may be, it will never be complete. Through the Artists Appreciation Initiative we are pleased and proud to showcase artists that we know will be well received by our clients and their artworks will provide the perfect finishing touch to months and sometimes years of work. Great Interior Design requires the best art.
