Allen behaves, plays well with others, is neat and considerate, and gets his work done on time.

He’s also creative, quirky, inquisitive, persevering and perspicacious. 

Doing good work for good people for a good long time, combining insight and critical thinking and excellent technique along with a keen eye.

Good photography that grasps for perfection while clinging to spontaneity.

Born in South Carolina, trained in California, living in Memphis. The 3 major earthquake zones of the United States. What can that mean? Carpe diem! 

Sure, Allen’s created a lot of award-winning photography, has been published in Communication Arts, led profession organizations, continues in a great marriage, and has helped raise an above-average daughter, but these things tend to happen during a long and eventful career.
