In my mind photography is not just the presentation of a beautiful body, but rather the expression of a complex personality. Consequently, my goal is to discover and capture the true person in my images.
This is the reason I am compelled to take pictures – my desire to not only to show how something looked, but how it felt when I took the photograph and captured the moment. I want to convey the spirit and personality of the person from a new and surprising point-of-view.
Each shoot is unique to every individual and it's important that the person feels comfortable and engaged in the project. I am an observer, capturing a moment that hopefully manages to tell an entire story about a place or reveal a little of the soul of the person I am photographing.

Allan Spiers Photography
I was born and raised in Lima, Peru. When I was 13 years old my family moved to the United States in search of a better life and a better future for me. After attending high school in Upland, California, I moved to South Florida, where I acquired a job as a graphic artist with a local magazine. After months of strong public and corporate acclaim, I witnessed my hobby of designing ads, flyers and web pages turn into an art form of its own. I determined it was time to finally make my hobby, my art, into a business.
In 1997, I founded Digital Fuel Studios, Inc., which is now an internationally recognized graphic design company, with the privilege to have worked with over 400 clients, and over 8,000 projects worldwide.
After years of admiring most of the stock photography used during my career as a graphic artist, I decided to challenge my artistic abilities and began to explore the world of photography. I started my professional photography business in 2001, and I quickly showed the ability to capture my subject’s inner beauty and emotion.
In 2004, a business venture brought me to Chicago, Illinois, where I now reside. My passion for photography has flourished, and still today, I feel extremely fortunate to have a career that I absolutely love and am passionate about.
