Will Allen

Will with Zombie Boy - FYI,Will is the one on the left

A week before coming out to the Bahamas, Will was photographing the human canvas above for an ad shoot.  I think I would rather come face-to-face with a Tiger shark than Zombie Boy, but as they say, never judge a book by it's cover.

Will Allen is a photographer / videographer based in Montreal, Canada.  He has a diverse portfolio ranging from beautiful women to beautiful sharks.  Productions have taken him all over the world, and he has been able to work on various IMAX movies including Rescue and Tahiti.

When I first met Will I thought he was going to be "that guy" - there is always "that guy" on a boat.  Was wrong, see first parahraph, second sentence - never judge...Turns out Will is a solid guy, unassuming, calm and funny.  Characteristics that are always refreshing and welcome in the shark world, in fact, would be nice to have more of.  No need for spotlight - his work and actions speak for themselves.

I know there are some good photos coming from the Bahamas trip - very much looking forward to them.  

In the meantime, visit his site

If you happen to be in Montreal - you will have to stop by his pub: and have one of the many English beers and catch a football game...a real football game.
