Self-taught photographer based in central Ilinois, passionate about travel, camping, coffee, sustainability, and health and fitness.
For Allison, photography is a way of life. Growing up in a digital age and being able to capture memories with friends and family through photos became her way of asking questions, exploring their possibilities, then telling the story. Allison’s inspiration to tell a story through photos has also transitioned into video. Both mediums provide a way to explore her many interests. Currently, she is most fascinated by capturing photos which convey a deep sense of humility to the planet’s vast environments of mountains, oceans, desserts and more, and how humans interact with it and connect to it.
I love telling a story with photography and cinematography. A story which touches each set of eyes to see my work. I strive to have my photos inspire others to seek adventure in life and being able to do that with a camera is a perfect unison of passions for me.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
All the photos I've taken over the years have taught me to appreciate capturing an event of landscape the way I see it. Trying to take out my biases or pre-conceived ideas to capture the moment for what it truly is.
