Feedback from recent mentorships.
“I have just completed a private mentorship with Allen and I found the experience to be all I could hope for. Allen is one of those rare teachers who are not only highly skilled in their craft but who also have the unique ability to convey complex information in a way that is completely understandable by the student. He brings to the process a tireless commitment to the student coupled with a way of presenting the information with the kind of enthusiasm that shows his own love for the art. In addition his patience and good nature made the sessions not only extremely informative but also a great deal of fun. I will certainly be back for more!”-R. Roslyn
“This was an amazing three-day mentorship! From digital workflow and post processing to working through the unpredictable variables of outside shooting with live models, Allen provided me with an excellent foundation for my first venture into environmental figure work. From our initial email contact through the entire mentorship, Allen exhibited top-notch professionalism in every aspect. He has a relaxed and patient teaching style that makes you feel comfortable and confident and his intent was always on ensuring that my needs were being met. I cannot recommend a class with Allen enough and am looking forward to working with him again!” – S. Kain
“We’re both thrilled about the work we were able to do with Allen and how the photographs turned out in the end. When we decided to become more serious about photography we were committed to photographing joy, and our work with Allen has been all about joy.” -Debra and Peter Cole
