Allen is a commercial and advertising photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee. He is consistently rated one of the best photographers in the country. His work can be seen on music packaging, magazines, and countless celebrity and Fortune 500 company websites. With over 25 years of experience in photography, Allen has traveled the world doing what he has described as his dream job, with a side of glorified stalking. “When I began as a professional photographer many years ago, I had this idea that no one would even look at my portfolio unless I had someone in there that everyone would recognize. I then just went about finding the best characters for my book and filled in the spaces with things and people I have admired since I was a child.” Over his career, Allen has photographed several celebrities including two US presidents, two knights, a host of famous musicians, producers, writers, actors, politicians, and what he likes to call, “everyday hardworking people (you know… the normal ones).” He has been published in : The Washington Post, Forbes , The Hindu, Discovery Magazine, People, Shape, Time, Wired, Rolling Stone, Mojo, & The Telegraph. His celebrity clients are quite diverse & include: Jim Gaffigan, Cal Ripkin Jr. Ethan Hawke, President George H. Bush, President George W. Bush, Peyton Manning, Rick Ross, Nicole Kidman, Beyonce, Sir Elton John, Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Julian Assange, Shaun White, Sir George Martin, Carmello Anthony, James Earl Jones, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tiffany, Norah Jones, Justin Timberlake, Tom Brokaw, Tony Hawk, Walter Cronkite, Dave Matthews, Ludacris, Juicy J & Kid President!

    Allen is wonderful to work with. He has an incredible scope of experience and it shines on the projects we take on. Allen is professional but, also has a vibrant personality that makes everyone on set enjoy the process. I couldn't recommend him more for any future projects!

    Allen was extremely versatile and invaluable on set. He knows lighting, sound, and composition while also bringing an incredible amount of creativity to the table. I would highly recommend working with Allen and we look forward to our next opportunity with him.
