Allen is an experienced photographer and videographer in the Philadelphia area for roughly 2 years now. Photography being something that he has mainly taught himself with the addition of a course in high school has lead to the personal style that he has within his photographs today. Allen is also in his third year of film school and has had many experiences during pre-production, on the set, and post production as well. With photography, he has documented many events held by local Philadelphia artists, be it fashion designers or musicians, on their way to stardom. He has a big passion for capturing portraits and fashion related endeavors.
While of course capturing beautiful images is a great reward of this job, one of the biggest reasons that makes this so fun is meeting new people, learning their story and ultimately making new connections through photography. There's an indescribable feeling of joy sharing photos to others and seeing their reactions to them.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done a countless amount of portraits shoots at this point, a couple of family photoshoots, as well as photographing events. For me I just like making people laugh and to create a good vibe as if we were just hanging out. Photoshoots don't need to be so serious, unless it is called for it to be, and everyone should have fun during the process.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
While I was in Central High School I received the Si Friedman Memorial Art Award for my photography.
A fun fact about this photographer
Despite being in Philadelphia all my life, I am actually not a 76ers fan. I've been a big Devin Booker and Suns fan for the past few years now.
