About Allan Kendall Commercial Photographer

Having spent 18 Years working in the education sector as a media trainer & technician Allan has developed many of the skills needed to run a business, he can communicate with all age ranges and is always professional and friendly. Photography is his passion and after stumbling across a blog from a photographer who used to be in the Marines and had a bad accident up a mountain, he was inspired...

"I hit a snow covered ledge approx 150ft below my start position with a lovely large rock boulder on it. I hit this and sustained some quite serious injuries, mainly thanks to the boulder, broken ribs, upper leg, arm, pelvis separation and collapsed lung.... I would say that people often say that when you stare death in the face your whole life flashes before your eyes. I would disagree and say that I have talked with others since who have faced the same situation and I experienced reflection on all the things that I wished I had done but not, the things I wished I had said, the moments that I wished I had seized. In short the things that I would have done differently if I knew I would not have the time 'later' in life."

This Photographer decided to follow his dream and Allan is thankful that he did not have to go though such a life changing experience before making up his own mind to follow his love of photography (although I did break my collarbone riding my bike once).
