As an EMMY award winning DOP based in Birmingham/Tuscaloosa and Atlanta, Allen routinely shoots in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, the Florida Panhandle and beyond. But with a national award-winning reputation for excellence, Allen travels the country from California to New York. Allen works closely with his crew to bring the lighting, composition and sound that clients expect. For over 35 years, Allen has been providing award winning, creative storytelling images for national broadcast and cable networks, syndicated programs, corporate productions, and commercials.
Allen is an award winning cameraman who over his career has shot for major networks including PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC and many others. Allen has also done many corporate identity pieces for major national corporations and non profits. Allen has also won many awards for his work on documentaries and magazine pieces over the years including multiple regional EMMYs in Seattle and Pittsburgh. These days, Allen provides creative coverage with complete (and always changing) state of the art camera packages built around the 4K Sony FS7M2, the 4K Sony Cine Alta PMW-F5, Sony XDCAM 800, Nikon Z series still/video cameras and much more. His Sound Devices mixers, Lectrosonics wirelesses, Sanken and Sennheisser booms, provide great sound while solid LED lighting and grip packages complete the mix. Add in some of the best sound recordists, gaffers, grips and other personnel, and you have a winning combination.
I have been in the industry since 1976.
