My photo
Hi, my name is Allison. I’m a photographer based in Boise, ID. I specialize in interiors with an editorial flair. I received my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Boise State University. I believe my education is what sets me apart from your average person with a fancy camera. If anything, it shows you how damn dedicated I am to my craft. When I’m not shooting for clients, I work on my personal projects. Work from my ongoing photographic series, “Spaces of Cultural Comfort,” has been exhibited locally at the Boise Art Museum and three pieces have been acquired by the City of Boise to be included in the Boise Visual Chronicle, a permanent collection of artworks. When I’m not photographing, I like to go out thrifting. Please check out my Etsy store for badass vintage housewares and accessories. I’m a quiet person by nature but contrary to popular opinion, I’m not shy. I curse like a sailor around my friends + family and sometimes on this blog.

Bruneau Sand Dunes, Idaho

Back in March the Photographic Arts Collective took a group of visiting art students from Nagoya Zokei University, Japan on a field trip to photograph Bruneau Sand Dunes. It was awesome to hear them talk about it on the way back home. Some of them had never even seen the horizon in their lives! They were amazed by little things we rarely think about, like traditional mail boxes and the way businesses and homes proudly display the American flag. My favorite was when they oohed and aahed at all the cows. When we got there Ross let me snap a few shots with his 4x5 view camera. I have to say, I wish I had one of those puppies. The negative is huge and the image quality on those is superb. Anyway, If you have time, check out this rad video by Zach at the Arbiter of our field trip.

Thanks to Ross Knapper for these next three shots.
