We’ve all heard the expression that “there’s no substitute for experience” and it is

a saying that endures because it speaks to a fundamental and basic truth.   With

the arrival of August of this year, (2020) we will be celebrating 34 years of being

in business and truly have a wealth of invaluable experience.  


Those years passed so quickly simply because we were constantly busy living what

can only be described as an amazing adventure.  We had the good fortune of

making connections that enabled us to photograph some of the most important and

influential people of our time.  We were equally privileged to be working for some

of the most prestigious companies here in the U.S. as well as both major political



In that time we accumulated close to 500 letters of reference, business referrals,

and letters of appreciation which we are extremely proud of.  As a source of

creative visual products, we have invested heavily in education.  While we

began humbly as event photographers we quickly migrated to weddings so

insure a survivable income.  We far surpassed “survivable” and rose to become

one of the top wedding photography teams in the San Francisco Bay Area.


We eventually stopped providing wedding services with the goal of expanding

our skills, improving cash flow, and getting our lives back from the 24-7, 7 days

a week demand of weddings.  We moved quickly into the portrait business which

has been the financial mainstay of our studio for the past 8 years.  


Over the years our portrait work has included Executives, Performing Artists,

Writers, Astronauts, Athletes, Models, Doctors, Judges, and other types of what

we like to call “Personal Portraits”.  It also included “Group Portraits” of both

large and small sizes.  Once again, and driven by that same desire to be the

best we could be, we are re-inventing ourselves to fill what we saw as the rapidly

expanding market of digital art.


My experience and my education are in art and within that very large market space

there are countless niches of artistic expression and of those, “Compositing”

has become my chosen endeavor.  Composite work is the artistic process of

combining two or more images to create a totally unique image. You’ve s

een this type of work for years in advertisements and in marketing and it is very

much an artistic endeavor that brings me full circle in my career.   


So I would like to invite you to enjoy our galleries of images and we hope that

you will let us know if we can be of service to you with both your questions and

your orders.  Thank you for dropping by at Allen’s Arts and we look forward to

hearing from you.
