Alison has a true passion for weddings, food, fashion and design and when combined with her penchant for framing interesting people in magical moments, this forms the foundation on which her work builds. She wants her photographs to connect people with themselves and their lives in deeper ways. She loves color, joy, light, air, smiles, patterns, organized clutter, unexpected angles and potently genuine moments. But moments most of all because in the end, she believes it’s the moments that matter.

Alison’s foundations in photography couldn’t be more personal. Raised by two passionate hobby photographers, she completed her first professional job aged 18. In the two decades since, she’s worked to refine her craft and discover exactly who she is as a creative.

For Alison, the essence of photography is in the freezing of a feeling. A well-crafted image transports the viewer right to the moment depicted before them. Within the editorial genre, the potential of such power cannot be overstated. Alison credits the GFX System with allowing her to be more present and intentional than ever.

Distilling a lifetime of experience into three simple tips is no easy feat, but Alison has done just that, to help you on your way. Watch the video above to hear more about storytelling, utilizing available light, and making connections – complete with gorgeous examples.

When you’ve digested all Alison has to offer, it’s time for your own creative process to begin. There’s a FUJIFILM X-T4 with XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR up for grabs, awaiting whichever photographer follows the tips, then delivers a stunning image.
