Frances ‘Fran’ Miller is a Sydney-born photographer now living on the Gold Coast.
Specialising in fine art surf and water photography, Fran’s work has been published in numerous publications across Europe, Asia and Australia, having worked with a large number of world-renowned brands and surfers. In 2017, Fran was ranked no.2 best female surf photographer in the world by Tracks magazine, and was featured globally in Canon’s Women in Surf campaign. Having exhibited in major Australian art festivals, Fran has had her work purchased by major clients including Ralph Lauren and Wyndham Hotels, and her photographs are hanging in private collections in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Sydney. In 2019, Fran worked with the AgUnity Foundation (a social enterprise providing technology services to small food producers in remote areas) photographing their joint World Food Programme project in Ethiopia as well as bringing to life a major project photographed on her travels through the Spice Islands, West Timor and Papua New Guinea last year. “I enjoy taking photographs that leave the viewer with more questions than answers,” Fran says. “I am a surfer, and I am passionate about the ocean, but I crave creating pieces that explore moods and feelings rather than being solely documentative, whilst still using surfing and the ocean as my medium.”
