Hi there, I’m Chris Millen, a Tassie born nature-enthused, surfer with a passion for photography, specifically weddings and family portraiture. I established MILLENPHOTO in 2014 following graduating from the Photography Studies College, Victoria with an Advanced Diploma in Photography, majoring in Commercial Photography. In Melbourne, I spent my time working on my portfolio which includes weddings, corporate, family and commercial photography.
In 2015 on a balmy Melbourne eve, amidst the glittery glow of a 70’s themed wedding, I met my partner, Laura, who not long after convinced me moving out west to Fremantle would be an adventure not forgotten. Four months later, the two of us packed all my belongings into my 1994 Nissan Vanette. With the van full to brim and our stomachs full of butterflies, we adventured West, together. Since this glittery 70’s eve, our lives have been full of adventures around the south-west coast line, some small northern adventures and a few overseas and inter-state trips. We love camping, 4WDing, surfing, hiking and of course chasing after our crazy Red Heeler puppy, Spud. As a photographer, I get my inspiration from what I love. You will see a lot of that on my instagram page @christo_milzo. Or for a more professional look @millenphoto.
Since moving to WA, I have been working hard building my business as well as my professional skills through working in 2016 at Verve, a portraiture studio, and currently at Kapture, a school photography organisation. I love my job, working with kids, families and newlywed couples. I come with a friendly, calm and relaxed nature. I also come with an approach that enables you to completely relax and be yourself in front the camera. There is no need to stress! I love working on relationship building, it's not forced, it totally comes from the heart.
So, if you fancy getting on board, I would love to hear from you and thank you very much for visiting MILLENPHOTO! Appreciated.
