Allen’s art has been described as “unique, beautiful, and natural”. Allen captures the unique beauty of nature missed by most people during their hectic schedules. Although digital photography is used for his art, no image is ever touched up or edited to get that perfect photo. “Nature’s beauty doesn’t need help from me,” Allen says. Having a passion for nature and an eye to capture its beauty, the natural world is his studio.

He has photographed at National Parks, however, most of his work has been done in Northern Virginia parks, including Green Springs, Mason Neck, River Bend, Runnymeade, and Walney Nature Center. Allen’s passion for nature photography began when creating a wildlife garden. Creation of the wildlife garden attracted butterflies, birds, and rabbits allowing photo opportunities of various species.

Allen has coupled his passion for dogs and cats with his photography skills too. “Dogs and cats are a part of nature so I focus on creating fine art of these furry friends to portray their natural beauty” Allen says.

Allen participates in arts festivals throughout the Shenandoah Valley and Northern Virginia and with the Loudoun Arts Council, Manassas Arts Guild and Vienna Arts Society.
