Allan Castle Loves making women look and feel beautiful.
Every women is beautiful. My purpose is to help reveal the beauty, purity and love in each women.
Ever since I started taking photographs years ago, I wanted everyone to look the way I saw them with my heart. The real person's soul. Their love, uniqueness and perfection.
Photography is not just a business for me. It is a exciting and spiritual experience. It is a honor to photograph someone. Making the photo match my vision, as much as possible. It is important to show them at their best and looking as perfect as possible.
My many years of taking photos have involved using many tools and techniques, but I feel most of my best work is creating photos of people. Capturing something of the soul of a person. Their essence and the gaze of their eyes and emotions.
I want my photos to make you say "WOW". That no one else could have created exactly that photo. That the picture is a important keepsake. A work of art, not just a snapshot.
I don't believe photos have to be realistic. They do not need to sharply show every line and blemish on a person's face. Elements can also be added, that may not exist in real life. More like a masters' painting or artist's illustration.
Cameras are like an artist's brushes and paints. Some artists use watercolors, while other artists use prefer acrylic paint or mix several media (mixed media). I use digital cameras for my work, but also have and use several film cameras. Each helps create an unique way of capturing the image and seeing the world.
My photography services are meant for sophisticated clients who desire unique fine art photographs. If you want to capture timeless beauty, please contact Allan for more information and to reserve your time for the photo session or to buy fine art prints.
