WHEN IT'S DARK. I SEE THE LIGHTS!

"Aurora" Dora Miller relocated from São Paulo, Brazil, to Alaska in 2001 and has been chasing and photographing Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) ever since.

"I have never heard about the Northern Lights before I moved to Alaska. The first time I saw them it was love at first sight. That was it! From there on I knew what I wanted to do, share the Auroras with the world and show them to everyone who doesn't have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights. That's what I have been doing since."

Her Aurora images have been published by NASA, Alaska Magazine, Last Frontier Magazine, Nature Photographer Magazine, Northwest Travel & Life Magazine and many other publications. Her unique work has been used by the Geophysical Institute, the University of Alaska and the Society of Nature Photographers.

Her creations can be seen here on her website www.AuroraDora.com, in many Lodges in Alaska and at her gallery, Aurora Dora, in downtown Talkeetna, Alaska (Main Street & Talkeetna Spur Road)

  • I visited Aurora Dora’s shop in March 2022 and loved every one of her stunning portraits of the northern lights. I was blessed in that she arrived on sight and readily helped me narrow down my favorites by happily pulling them off the display and lining them up side by side. She knows every photos history and can recall every detail of the photos origin, which makes one feel as though you were present at the moment of the stunning capture. I purchased two of the metal imposed images. They shipped free of charge (an unexpected and appreciated bonus) and arrived in about 10 days expertly packaged & in perfect condition. I absolutely love them! *Side story- I had also purchased a pair of northern light earrings which I wore in the airport and promptly lost one on the airplane ride home. As I was on a tour at the time, my tour Director, (who knows Dora personally), reached out to her with this sad tail. Dora then offered to mail me a replacement earrings! I think this speaks highly of her, and just goes to prove what a kind, thoughtful and caring person she is. She truly cares. ❤️ I highly recommend that you stop by if you happen to be in her neck of the woods you will not be disappointed! And even if you’re not, get on the her website and purchase one of her photos!
  • Her photos of the Aurora are breathtaking. They bring many memories of the time spent with her during her talk at the hotel and seeing the lights. I enjoyed her knowledge and experience.
