Milton Bell was born in Buford, Georgia and has lived most of his life in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been an avid photographer since his early twenties.  He first started exposing film in 1968 at the old Atlanta publishingmilton bell photography at birders life company, Foote & Davies.  His job there was putting “dots” on halftone prints in order to “offset print” high school and college year books.  Later, he went on to work for a small daily newspaper until going to work for Delta Air Lines in 1973.  He retired from Delta after 30 years of service.

It was while at the newspaper that he acquired his first camera and has had one close ever since.  His last film camera purchased was the “army tank” F2 Nikon.  While working at Delta, at the urging of a friend, he started doing commercial photography which was good luck and kind of serendipitous in that his friend’s company had an entire studio in storage including lights, booms, power packs etc., and a beautiful Sinar 4×5 view camera.  A year or so later he purchased his own equipment while working out of and assisting a professional studio in Atlanta.

Milton is an avid backpacker/hiker and besides photography, he enjoys scuba diving, skiing, exploring, being “on the road”,  traveling “blue highways” and just being outdoors.
