Allen Clark has helped us, the Independent Musicians...
For years, Allen has shot and edited photos and videos for us, the independent musicians, for free. He has helped us advance our careers by providing things that we never could have otherwise afforded. He is one of the biggest supporters of Indie Music in the Nashville scene.
And it's not because he is trying to increase his portfolio. Over the years, Allen has been one of the most respected photographers in the nation, shooting such public figures as:
- George Bush
- Julian Assange
- Tom Brokaw
- Norman Schwartzkopf
- Jim Gaffigan
- Tony Hawk
- Josh Hamilton
- Carmelo Anthony
- Shawn White
- Cal Ripken, Jr.
- Imogen Heap
- Norah Jones
- David Gray
- Dave Matthews
(You can see more of his work at http://www.allenclarkphotography.com)
In short, he has given us professional-level photography work and has charged us a fraction of the price, often doing his work for free.
Last month, all of Allen's photography equipment was stolen while shooting a video for one of us in New Orleans.
Maybe if he had charged us more, his gear would have been insured. But it wasn't. So this is our chance to help him like he has helped us.
What We Need
Here is a list of the gear Allen needs to get back to work:
- Nikon D600 ($1,900.00)
- Nikon 50mm 1.8 ($100.00)
- 2 Nikon SB900 Flashes ($500.00 each)

This brings us to a total of $4,998.00
Other Ways You Can HelpIf you have some of the listed equipment above that you would be willing to sell, get in touch! We, the musicians, don't know a lot about photography gear (the above list was copy/pasted from Allen) but we can put you in touch with him directly. If we can get some of this gear for a lower price than we have listed above: AWESOME.
