Licking Creek

Kevin Mills is a native of Huntingdon and graduated from HAHS in 1977. He acquired a love and passion for photography at an early age. At age 12, Kevin started developing and printing black and white film and prints in his parent's bathroom. The chemistry played havoc with the counter tops and back splashes, making his parents very unhappy. Soon, he progressed to developing and printing color slide film, Cibachrome. Kevin then progressed to taking pictures of friends, family, and fellow classmates. Kevin's business was not very lucrative starting out; you do not make much money when it is free.

After graduating from dear ol' HAHS, he moved to Colorado. There, after a brief coal mining stint, he worked for a photographer in Grand Junction, Colorado, H. Curtis Crouch. Curt was two points from achieving Master of Photographer and later in life did achieve his Masters. From Curt's tutelage and mentorship, Kevin learned many new concepts and skills and developed into an accomplished professional photographer.

Currently, Kevin has achieved many professional and personal goals in photography. He enjoys learning the latest photographic techniques and then teaching others his love for the art.

Kevin's photographic love and proficiency have a broad gamut. He has adeptness in all types of photography, including portraiture, nature, still-life, landscape, architecture, wedding, and teaching, virtually all aspects of photography. Kevin has also developed the ability to design and produce websites, which works well with the photography aspect of his knowledge.

Having the ability to see an image and then reproduce it as a photograph is a skill Kevin has developed over the last 40 years. Having "The Eye" is a talent who few are born with, but can be learned by the determined.

Kevin has also donated his time to Shirley Home for the Aged, HCVB, HCCTC, and other private groups.

Kevin has been in photography for approximately 45 years and has operated a photographic business for the last 35 years.
