Unique FINE ART photography for every woman-
THE MYSTERY AND ILLUSION OF CAPTURING BEAUTY.
My goal is to photograph every woman as beautifully as possible. To capture her spirit, dreams & inner and outer beauty. To photograph a woman’s soul. A woman’s essence and the gaze of her eyes and feeling. To make her appear like a vision from a dream.
A dream is often hazy. The image may appear in a fog or a reflection in a mirror. Sharp enough to show the main features, but soft enough to give the illusion of mystery. It’s almost as if you catch a glimpse of the person. From the corner of your eye.
I have worked years to develop techniques to capture images, that look like my visions. Most photographers take photographs that are too sharp and too critical. Then they may retouch the person, but it looks artificial and unnatural.
I don't believe photos have to be hyper realistic. They do not need to sharply show every line and blemish on a person's face. A beautiful photo is more like a masters' painting or artist's illustration.
Allan’s goal is to create special pictures, that are valuable keepsakes and artwork. That you say, wow, no one else could have created exactly that photo. A work of art, not just a snapshot.
Photography is not just a business for me. It is a exciting and spiritual experience. The kind of experience you have when time stops or slows down and you can see everything in magnificent detail. Like a lucid dream or vision.
Many of my pictures are sometimes impressionistic looking images. My photos may sometimes appear vintage, like they were taken 100 years ago. Like a silent movie or your grandparents photo album portraits.
