Suzette Allen


Suzette has Been a portrait artist for 30 years, and Photoshop instructor for 15 years. More recently, sh has been a Hybrid/mirrorless instructor for 3 years, helping photographers evolve into the next generation of image enthusiast. Suzette’s unique approach involves flowing seamlessly between stills/video capturing more life and impact in images & storytelling and creating a hybrid product that embraces movement [and emotion] in order to be relevant today.

Suzette will be sharing a selection of hybrid videos [portraits, scenic and commercial projects], giving her perspective on shooting and filming and how she approaches each job. She will share how she markets and creates intriguing interactive landscape images and travel imagery! Since Hybrid is such a new art medium, many photographers are not sure of the workflow and options, so she will be covering the different soplutions to create master images and ALSO create video stories with Lightroom & Photoshop. The full how-to and hands- on instrcution will be available on Oct 15th for creating shows with Pro Show Web, and on the 15-16th for refining images and videos with Lightroom and Photoshop!

She lives in Sacramento California with her husband Jon and has a small studio there, but they travel a lot, teaching and shooting everywhere they go, teaching and sharing along the way. Suzette loves the creative process, not only of shooting and editing, but also of making hybrid videos that tell stories much deeper and more meaningful than a still capture.

Student Reviews:

I have been enjoying First Tuesday at Paul’s Photo for over a year. Each photographer has been inspiring, informative and entertaining. I use to go to Annenberg, which is also excellent, but nice to have this caliber of professionals so close to the South Bay. I feel like my mind is racing with ideas to try after each session. -Kathy C.

I consider First Tuesdays a special treat – one I look forward to every month. Not only do I get to experience the gallery shows earlier, I get to hear a pro talk about their work. The speakers talk about their passion, how they found it, how they keep it alive and their process of how developed their style of photographing. Though I may not be interested in a particular style, I come because every month I walk away with a new piece of information, a view point that has awakened my own style, or am reminded what drives me to continue to go out as much as I can to photograph. You just never know what gem you’ll walk away with. -Joy D.
