Welcome to Robert G Allen Photography. I'm a professional multi-disciplinary commercial and editorial freelance photographer based in Boise Idaho.
While my career has primarily been as an event photographer, this website represents other genera’s of photography for which I have professional competency and enjoyment. The resulting front page and gallery/project portfolios are the result of a combination of client assignments and personal areas of interest.
I developed an interest in photography soon after digital cameras came onto the market in the late 1990s. My early experiences primarily involved photographing family events (birthdays, outings, celebrations etc…). Those early experiences allowed me to refine my photography craft in preparation of offering services to clients and organizations.
My approach to composition and post processing is straight forward. My preference is to capture images utilizing naturally occurring available light and color, only occasionally utilizing supplemental lighting if needed, such as in a studio environment or low light setting. If warranted, I will remove minor distracting elements within a composition. I do not do sky replacement or utilize fake bokeh. I do not make misleading changes to photographs that would materially alter the scene as it originally existed.
