Allison Gates

“Water can stir up unexpected thoughts and emotions; each ripple is a story and dream unto itself. My goal as a photographer is to capture those emotions, preserve them and share them with others.”

Allison Gates is a painter, photographer, activist and web designer with degrees in fine art & forensic psychology. Being both a city dweller and an Adirondacker inspires her to create modern interpretations of natural environments. Her often abstract, painting-like photographs use color and composition to transcend the familiar into fresh and unique visual experiences.

Gates is taken by strong design elements of the natural world and nature, where she enjoys having her spirit renewed and her head filled with inspiration. Originally from Lake George, New York, she is particularly drawn to water, and its ability to invigorate, to pacify and bring joy.
