Allan Hagen

Photographer by day, magician and performer by night.

Being in the entertainment industry allows me to travel the world and see incredible sights.



Before I started performing full time, I went to film school and later worked in the film industry for a while, behind the camera on short films, music videos, commercials and even a feature documentary.



Wanting to preserve an element of visual storytelling in my performing life - I decided to turn photography into something that fills and enriches my travels.



When it comes to method, I believe in photography like a craft with many likenesses to the sleight-of-hand magic I perform for adult audiences.



For that reason I choose to shoot on analog film using two of the most beautiful and reliable analog cameras ever built - a Leica M6 for 35mm film and a Hasselblad 501C for medium format 120mm film.



These create incredible analog and cinematic images in a modern world - and when you buy a print from me, you are also buying that rich legacy and history of making photos in the camera instead of in post processing and in the computer.
