After a 37-year career at Northwestern Mutual, most recently serving as Chief Company Photographer, Mike retired in 2016 and began his own photography business, Mike Miller Images. His appreciation of the arts has inspired him to create his own vision through photography. In his work, he has photographed musicians, athletes, street scenes, nature, architecture, construction, portraiture and culinary arts.

I found the strength and courage of the children, parents and siblings I met to be truly amazing. The doctors, nurses and researches show true compassion and optimism. And the children affected by childhood cancer are still optimistic as well – they continue to dream about the future and enjoy life to its fullest every day.

Where is your favorite place to go for inspiration?

I like to go for a run to clear my head.

What do you hope people will feel when they see your work?

I hope they recognize that a journey of pain, suffering and fear can have an outcome of care, love, confidence and optimism for the future.

Cake or pie?

Cake! Chocolate cake!
