Willie J. Allen, Jr.

Independent Visual Journalist

Willie is an award-winning photojournalist, videographer and former staff photographer of the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times) who is based in Orlando, FL. Allen's strong desire to make a difference comes


through in the selection of stories he tells with his cameras. He turns his lenses toward the lives of the marginalized, those who may not have had their voices heard by the masses. Capturing those experiences with respect and sensitivity, Allen's stories portray a truth and honesty about the subjects he covers.
