My name is Allison and I am sports photographer based in Dubai. I love the challenge of capturing the action, key moments and the magic of each event whether it is a mini or youth training session, a school sports day or an international tournament.
Passion, energy and emotion is apparent in each and every individual involved in sport, no matter what their age, role or level. Recording and documenting the efforts, telling the stories and capturing “that moment”, is what excites me as a photographer.
Whether as a supporter, participant, competitor or coach, it is probably fair to say I love sport. Sport has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Blessed with growing up in Kenya, much of my childhood was spent outside with family and friends on a court or pitch, in a pool, or on a horse. When I moved to the UAE in 1996 it was through sport that I made new friends and gained a sense of belonging.
When I am photographing I feel completely connected to that sport. I take every step alongside those participating, feel their passion, their energy and emotions. Some things never change. Sport, in its various shapes and forms, is still a huge part of my everyday life; it just now comes with my camera!
