Alan’s fine art photography publishing projects have been successful as wall decor, calendars, books and greeting cards. In addition, his hand-crafted black and white and sepia fine art prints are sought after by collectors and featured in exhibitions in museums and galleries. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions over the past 20 years, including a 120 print retrospective.
Internationally, Alan is currently working on several new release projects with publishers from Germany, the Czech Republic, Italy, France and Japan featuring his fine art photographic imagery. Spanning globally has provided him with a diverse client base, exposing his photographic imagery to new appreciative audiences in many different cultures.
Alan holds a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York and an MFA degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he has lectured on photography for 20 years. He also has taught photography classes at the University of San Francisco and City College of San Francisco, California.
Alan’s excursions to Europe have taken on new interest now that his style of photography has been discovered. For several decades Alan has been capturing images in European parks and gardens. On his European photography excursions Alan still uses large format traditional film cameras photographing preferably in adverse weather. ”I see Europe in black-and-white in my mind’s eye because it is so old and there is so much stone and texture. When it is cloudy and dreary out, I often photograph all day. The textures and tones I am looking for are depicted delicately when the lighting is soft.” Primarily Alan prefers to photograph during the sunrise and sunset hours, as well as at night. This gives his photographs a crisp, clean mood, with perfect detail in the highlights and shadows. Alan’s approach, photographic style and sensitivity to lighting help capture the spirit of the architecture and environment in his photography.
Some of Alan’s photography projects from the last decade have won awards from: The Western Art Directors Club, The American Advertising Awards, American Graphic Design Awards, How Magazine’s Self-Promotion Award, and Print Magazine’s Art and Design Annual, Creativity 33 and the 2014 International Calendar Awards.
Alan is a passionate traveller and image maker. During time spent abroad and within the USA, he has captured a unique variety of photography ranging from architecture to landscapes, in addition to portraits and still life photography. His vast collection of fine art photography is featured in museum, gallery and private collections. Alan’s calendars, cards, and wall decor are available in retail stores and also can be found editorially in periodicals, books, and magazines.
Alan’s nostalgic, soft, romantic and alluring imagery brings the past into the present.
