About this pro

How does your business stand out?

After 35 years or working in the commercial art/design industry working with many high end companies (Microsoft/Sierra/Goodyear...) and always aware of the final product and how it can be improved--I now take all that knowledge and experience and apply it to my photography. Besides having way more experience in the field that almost any other photographers, I have worked hard to master lighting, cameras, lenses, and most of all I'm a people person (From a small town in Kentucky) and everyone loves to work with me!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like working with people and I love it when they are excited about the finished photos. I'm constantly striving for that perfect image and will work as hard as it takes to improve. I like the challenges involved and love the creativity that I can achieve with photography. More and more I'm getting the chance to teach others what I've learned and that is yet another avenue I'm exploring.

    Allen shot our wedding on a sailboat with 21 people. As challenging as it was with the closed quarters, Allen made the most of it and gave us some amazing images! He is a true professional and a joy to work with!!

    I work in the modeling and photography business and literally have access to 100's of photographers. When I wanted portraits of my daughter in her uniform when she became an officer in the Army and when I wanted some more intimate photos as a gift for my boyfriend I contacted Allen Freeman. His work is head and shoulders above the rest. In fact when I have asked other photographers they point to him as their gold standard. Both sessions were comfortble and professional. Allen is good at coaching you into the right pose and capturing a great look (you should see his before and after shots!). If you have a wedding, headshot or wanted a little something more intimate for yourself I would choose Allen. I think his fine arts background gives him a real sense of how a body should look. His prices are reasonable and both times we got amazing images within a week. Oh and the images on his wall from pin up to steampunk were great! His studio was full of fun costumes and accessories if you wanted to try something outside the mainstream! If I could give 10 stars I would!

    Allen Freeman is not a photographer. He is an artist. His natural gift and talents in art, and his years of experience in graphic design lends itself to the aesthetic of his photography. The camera is his brush, the lense filled with paint. His work is exciting, and absolutely worth taking seriously. I can't wait to see his work as he continues to develop his craft.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm constantly watching informative videos on YouTube about lighting and cameras and posing a model. I have subscriptions to various photo magazines and have learned a lot over the years by studying them. I also read blogs and web sites that compare the latest products. I upgrade my camera every 2 years not because I need to, but because I want to stay current with what is going on in the field, as well as with the software I'm using.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was very young I was very interested in photography and shooting movies, from watching my dad who was always with a camera in his hand. I was also very interested in drawing and art in general. When I went to college I had classes in both, but had to make a decision as to which one to persue and I went with commercial art and design. After 35 years of doing that successfully on my own and working with other corporations I later decided to go with photography, my other early passion. Now, I'm very glad I worked it out this way as all the experience in creating art and design has fast forwarded my photography to a much higher level!
What types of customers have you worked with?
In the last 2.5 years I've developed my craft of making people look their very best! With the right lighting, poses, backgrounds, using the highest quality cameras and lenses, to my many years of experience with Photoshop--you can join my long list of satisfied clients! From head shots to themed shoots with full hair/make up, wardrobe and sets, I only want shots that make everyone say---WOW!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That not all photographers are equal. Some do the work as a 9-5 office job and just clock in and out. I'm passionate about the craft and shoot for the client yet always thinking how can this be better. How can this go outside the box and get that WOW factor. When shooting a Military Ball recently I shot for the portraits, but I also shot the dancing, the eating and all of the other things going on at the event. I was told no other photographer they have hired for these events had ever covered more than just what they were hired to do. I enjoy photography and I'm sure it shows in my work for me and for others.
