About Gary Allard

I consider Visual Communications my "first language," with English following a close second. At a very early age, images spoke to me far more clearly than the written word. Color, texture, layers, emotion, authenticity, and story: this is the vocabulary I recognize.

For more than 15 years, I have helped people, brands, and businesses polish their visual message. Through photography, I can walk those lovely lines between art and commerce, observation and intention, chance and necessity, and bring emotion to a moment without using words. That’s a pretty good feeling.

I'm deeply inspired by the people and places that make me want to laugh, sing, eat, drink, travel, and explore. New faces and old friends. Moments and memories, big or small, that make me reach for a camera. Love these things, too? We’ll probably click. Let’s talk.
