The Long artist statement:


English to follow

L'art de la photographie est de raconter une histoire en une seule image provocatrice. Je suis devenue fascinée par les yeux des gens et les expressions faciales à un jeune âge. J'ai adoré regarder des portraits réalisés par de célèbres peintres afin de comprendre leur manière de saisir l'essence de leur sujet. Ce sont ces sensibilités que j'apporte à mon travail. Je crois en la simplicité dans l’image et que les yeux sont les fenêtres de l'âme. Je veux que mes photos de vous et de votre famille aient une grande profondeur et vous soient d’une grande valeur.
J'ai un diplôme en photographie commerciale et ai pris de nombreux cours en photographie argentique noir et blanc, sur plaque humide (ferrotype) et en impression photographique. Mes photos sont actuellement affichées chez les particuliers et dans de nombreux bureaux à travers le Canada, les États-Unis, le Mexique et l'Europe. 438-496-8312 


The art of photography is telling a story in a single provocative image.
I became fascinated by people's eyes and facial expressions at a very early age. I loved looking at portraits done by famous painters to see how they captured the essence of that person.
These are the sensibilities that I bring to my work. I believe that less is more, and eyes are the windows to the soul. I want my photos of you and your family to have depth and lasting value. My commitment is to create a portrait that you will be proud to hang on your wall, and treasure for years to come.
I have a degree in commercial photography and have taken numerous courses in black and white film and wet plate (tintype) photography and printmaking. My photos are currently displayed in homes and offices throughout Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Europe. 438-496-8312 

Since 2006 Allison Cordner has been redefining how family portraiture is seen and experienced in Quebec. Her philosophy of elevating portraits as art in the home; ‘Forever statement pieces’ that are meant to be kept for generations is her mission.

Allison’s strengths are working and relating to children and adults of all ages and dispositions and quickly. Not a single subject has been able to keep their guard up while exposed to Allison's seamless, jovial, energetic and accommodating attitude. Notably photographing the ‘un-photographable’ is a challenge she loves.

Furthermore, Allison has a unique ability to document innocence, purity and emotion between family members. This is a gift that has been developed over a decade through training and experience.  The essence of childhood with all of it’s quirks and fumbles is the story she would like to tell for you.

With advanced degrees and training in fine arts, photography and business, Allison is regularly asked to judge, mentor and speak at events. She has worked with the likes of former prime ministers Tony Blair & Jean Chretien; the late Jack Layton, the late conductor, Christopher Jackson who’s iconic portrait with a red pencil made headlines across the classical music and media streams with his passing. She has and continues to work with olympic athletes, artists, musicians, actors, doctors, lawyers and every trade under the sun. Her photography has received awards, has been published locally & internationally and proudly hangs in prestigious homes across the globe.
