Allen Walker Profile

Allen Walker

I am from South Africa
Member since: Tuesday, September 9, 2008
I am a passionate self-taught photographer and owner of Allen Walker Photography (Pty) Ltd. I am supported, inspired and motivated by my stunning wife Ronelle, who has taught me patience - something every photographer needs.
I got involved in Photography in 2007, specializing in UW photography, since then the company has broadened it’s scope to Wildlife, Sport and Landscapes. I am passionate about our South African wildlife heritage, both on the land and in the sea!
However with my passion comes a robust, hard but honest approach to photography and opinions. I believe that photography should be creative, fresh and inspiring.It is also extremely important to “give back”, so I endeavor to assist organizations dedicated to the conservation of the environment and where I can, I want my images to tell the story. I do not have a lot of financial wealth, but where I can contribute with my photographic ability to work for the greater cause, I will and do.
