Seeing the world differently...

When I was growing up teachers would put the short kids up front and the tall ones in the back of the class. I was one of the taller kids. In 1st grade Ms. Andrews figured out the squinty kid in the back needed glasses!

Seven magical years of seeing a world of soft forms and shapes abruptly came to an end, but left an indelible impression on me.  The new world, sharp and in focus with the aid of lenses was magical.

One of those early Christmas's brought my first camera and I became enthralled with seeing the world through a myriad of lenses... Studying photography in college, moving to San Francisco, landing assistant gigs with Helmut Newton and Annie Leibovitz, shooting for Time, Wired, MIPS and then startups Apple and Adobe. Being one of the first photographers to adopt Photoshop into my creative process, even before digital capture was available, was a life altering experience. It's been a magical journey that still continues today.

Roughly an hour North of San Franciso, Dan Mills Productions is located in a historic warehouse in the Sonoma wine country town of Petaluma. We specialize in shooting wine bottles, food and beverages for corporate clients and designers. Our images have been used for packaging, websites, email campaigns, printed pieces and international advertising campaigns. We've recently expanded into video production, and are incorporating 3D effects into both still and moving images.
