About            Allan Mcmillan
Photographer & Acoustic Sound Engineer  
CleeHills in Shropshire England Uk


Born in Shakespears Stratford-On-Avon I spent my younger days bought up in the lush rolling hills and blossoming orchard countryside of the Herefordshire Borders often hiking the Misty Black Mountains and picturesque historic river valleys of Welsh Wales
Originally apprenticed as an Radio Communications Engineer I later became immersed in the fine art of studio and live band sound systems design and specialised in Acoustic analogue Recording where I first picked up a camera to photograph musicians performances and soon perfected flashless photography relying on stage lighting and show performance timing, then after a decade honing skills in this theater of Soundcraft I opted to follow my instincts and with a Celtic need to feel the breeze and touch the void I took my camera and reconnected with the natural world again
With a further interest in Natural Science and a competitive edge I made the move from photographing the creative noise of onstage gigs and the hubub of urban daily life to living in a quiet rural environment once again in an old Oak beamed cottage capturing the photography of Equine and Husky Sleddog racing events across the many forests of the Uk, this re-kindled a childhood love with the Art of Landscape and Wildlife where I feel most at home and being in touch with such like minded folk who make for some imposing Action & Portrait Photography in my portfolio
In such company I enjoy intriguing folklore and Song over a steaming hot mulled wine sat round the burning embers of a crackling Winters campfire, as the crimson-red Sunset gently gives sway over crisp snow laden peaks to the universal starry night above as the cosmos reveals her hidden secrets beyond an Auroral veil whilst distant howls softly and reassuringly serenade the darkness and a thousand wise old all seeing eyes keep watch over an ever enchanted ancient forest, what a wonderful world...

Today with modern high dynamic professional cameras and glass I render most photography in soft natural light which I feel makes the difference between a photograph and the depth of an Artists expressionate painting, this is where art meets imagination where catching the emotion between sunshine and shadow is paramount and all comes together at the right moment in time, I hope that along this journey through producing high quality Giclee Prints and Canvas Artwork editions I can in some small way help furnish people with good memories to keep and indulge my passion for running free with Sleddogs, singing with Wolves, souring with Raptors and touching the spirit of the wild world in all its raw natural splendor.

Our World  In Support of Wildlife ...

We may consider for a moment the future of this beautiful place Our fragile Blue Planet and its Wildlife Ecosystem to be integral with our own survival as the Caretaking Species, for we mankind and the animal kingdom are all inextricably linked and interdependent in our place on our Mother Earth as we traverse the eons across the darkness of space and time we are all spiritually related as one family together and so we are responsible for the health and wellbeing of our one Living World with all its magnificent colourful diversity of flora and fauna, oceans and skies that we enjoy and care for in trust to bequeath for the benefit of our children and those of the seventh future generations to come 
We are all responsible for doing our little bit in life however large or small that may possibly be, if we could all give and help nurture the habit of such good spirit and consideration throughout our daily lives then our little efforts shall all come together over time cumulative in their effect to help care for and preserve the health of our living home, Planet Earth.
