Ben Miller is a Los Angeles-based photographer who specializes in taking expressive portraits of models and everyday people alike. He has been a photographer for roughly 10 years, and his work has appeared in major publications like Newsweek, Seventeen and Food & Wine, among others.

For his latest shoot, Ben Miller rounded up four young models and took a road trip out to the California countryside. In the quiet, desolate countryside, Ben Miller shoots his models as young rebels, separated from most of civilization. "I wanted to capture the conflicting feelings of freedom, uncertainty, hope, love, togetherness and loneliness, that one feels when traveling in a new, strange place with friends," he said.

The results are impressive. The black-and-white tint on the photos deftly captures the mood of isolation and exploration felt by friends on a road trip in an unfamiliar place. Stats for Hipster Adventure Photography Trending: Older & Buzzing
