About Me

About Allio:
Allio is an internationally exhibited and published photographic artist.  Today, in addition to professional portfolio development, fine art pictorial and exhibition presentations, Allio is a guest lecturer and photography workshop instructor at events from private gatherings to corporate conventions.  Even with an extensive list of international credentials, he continues to grow his Master of Fine Arts practice in the field of visual arts.

Allio is an authentic and honored professional in the field of the artistic nude figure.  Here are just a few of his career highlights and accomplishments:

In 1999, Allio was selected as one of the top four modern erotic artists/photographers in the world by the European art media.  His work appeared in modern media exhibitions throughout the continent.

In 2001, Allio and his images - photographs and digital artworks - were the subject of a 30-minute feature broadcast on PBS Television.  He has also been the subject of interviews and features on major regional and local television network affiliates.

Currently, Allio is collaborating with innovative and talented models on gallery exhibition projects.  Within the past calendar year, his work has appeared in over 40 galleries and art exhibition spaces world-wide.  Project concepts and topics are influenced by site, culture, and messaging.

For life models seeking to improve their skills with film/digital cameras and various lighting techniques, Allio offers professional photography tutorial services.  These may be conducted in studio or on location.

Private commissions are available and should be booked at least six months in advance.  A credit card deposit is required.
