It's really not that complicated. You need someone to help you navigate through the process of creating images for you for at least two reasons. One, you can't quite do it yourself, in spite of how great the camera is on your smartphone. Two, you have a bigger vision in mind. You may have more reasons, but this is the nutshell version.

And so, that's why I'm here. It's about your Lifestyle, Legacy, and Posterity. 

It's a team effort, actually. Your input is highly important in the image creating process. In business, public relations, in life, a great photograph is an ally that can have a bigger influence on others than you might realize.

You're seen as a role model, an inspiration to family and friends. It's your journal in pictures. I once heard someone say, a picture is OF someone, a portrait is ABOUT someone. You've probably heard this before: it's all about your story. And as stories unfold and change like the seasons of your life, you'll need new pictures.

My interest in photography was sparked by the lack of pictures of my family...that legacy, history, posterity thing. Getting a camera sounded like a great idea. After all, time and precious moments were passing, and I was only getting older. A friend noticed I had a talent for it, and suggested I seek work as an assistant. I did. It was the best photo school I ever attended! 

Working with six or more commercial shooters for several years gave me a wealth of hands-on knowledge, photographing pretty much everything from A to Z, in the studio and on location. All types of lighting gear, all camera sizes and formats.

Eventually going solo, I made pictures (using film!) for models, dancers, musicians, brides & grooms...you name it. Working with writers, I created photos for their articles, etc, etc, etc.

As you can tell, I've been through the process, and am thoroughly prepared to make it as simple as possible for you. Besides, it'll be a lot of fun, too!

So, you can either choose to keep searching through the gazillion photographers that are out there. Or end the search now. CONTACT ME HERE. Looking forward to hearing from you! Allen
