Allen's passion for photography birthed from an unexpected
trip to the Galapagos Islands in 2014. With a newly purchased
DSLR camera in hand and in a world that was completely
foreign to him, Allen was hooked from the first press of the
shutter attempting to capture what he really saw with his own eyes.
After 6 years of extensive self-education in all facets of
photography and post-processing, Allen has developed a unique eye for a variety of photographic genres. Although, landscape and in particular dark-sky photography are his true passions.
Allen is also an expert in post-processing development and
follows Ansel Adam's workflow where over 50% of the creative
process occurs in the "darkroom". But of course, Allen's darkroom is his computer loaded with today's modern era software that is commonly available to all photographers.
Since moving to Albuquerque in 2006, the southwest is Allen's
home and his love for the local landscape is boundless.
"There is more interesting and unique landscape to capture here in the Southwest than many (if not most) areas of the world. It would last me many lifetimes of attempts to capture ...why live anywhere else?"
He and his wife, Peggy, own and operate Land of Enchantment
Photography, LLC and have run landscape photography tours and post-processing workshops for the past 4 years.
