We believe that photography is, or should be, an inclusive act. Everyone is welcome, everyone is represented. We are building a welcoming creative education space for everyone!
What are we doing here?
This is a community of welcoming, compassionate, creatives. Of people that want to help each other grow. Know that true growth is when those around you grow with you.
At our core, we are a group of photographers that meet at least once a month to get out and shoot. Explore our craft, and grow in our skills.
We are Michael Kent and Brooke Allen. Photographers, creators, and educators. We built allen-kent photo as a place to create portraits that mean something to us, and the people we shoot.
We would not be where we are without the photography community that embraced us when we needed it most. This space is our attempt to give back to that community. Free photo walks, a place to share, and a community that cares about the human aspect of photography.
At the most basic level, I believe that photography is a powerful art form with the ability to capture moments, empower people to do amazing things, and remind us what it is to be human. Our photography seeks to speak to the authenticity in the moments and people that we capture, while hopefully revealing and creating something a touch deeper. Our education philosophy also stems from the same understanding. In this space here, we are working to build a community of welcoming and creative minds.
For now, this space is in development as we are working on a lot of cool things behind the scenes. But there is still a lot you can do to join the fight for compassionate photography: Join our email list to keep in touch, head over to our facebook group, attend one of our free walks and talks.
We are going to use this place to share a LOT of unique things, and connect a lot of wonderful humans. This is just the start, can't wait to build this thing with you!
