In 2005 and 2006, husband and wife, Lee Millard and Lisa H-Millard attended a lot of weddings of their friends and family. As artists themselves, they would always bring along their camera to capture those special moments with hopes of getting those unique candid “artsy” shots. After photographing a few weddings for favors because of small budgets, or unplanned incidents, they thought they would take a shot at starting their own photography business. In late 2006 they established Lee S. Millard Photography and by the end of 2007 they had a few weddings and portrait sessions under their belts.
As Lisa became more of a driving force behind the business, shooting events on her own and co-shooting with Lee, it became evident that the name should be changed. In 2008, Lee S. Millard Photography was officially changed to Dodge + Burn Photography and now the name encompasses what Lisa and Lee are all about: working well as a team, being edgy, fun and fresh, and working with our clients to give them the coolest photographs.
In addition to D+B, Lee is also an accomplished artist. In 2002, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and in 2005 received his Master of Fine Arts degree from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. His work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions at venues like Lock Haven University, The Ohio State University at Marion, The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, Maryland Art Place, Clarion University, Bloomsburg University, Appalachian State University, and the Gwangju Museum of Art in Korea. Lee has taught art courses at Marywood University and Misericordia University. In May, 2012, he earned his second masters degree in Instructional Technology and is now an instructional designer for Strayer University.
Lisa received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Bloomsburg University (2003) and began her Master of Fine Arts degree at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia (2004). After completing a year at UArts, she took a leave from graduate school to become a food service interior designer at Atlantic Equipment Specialists in Danville, PA. In 2007, she was featured on HGTV’s reality series, Design Star, where she competed against 10 other designers for a chance to host her own television show. Although Lisa did not win her own show, her love for art still radiates through her work in interior design, fashion, and photography. She is currently continuing her education by pursuing her masters degree in Instructional Technology.
