oh hello, I'm

Michael Stewart Patrick Kent

I am a portrait photographer, and photo educator. Half of the creative team at Allen-Kent Photography, but also founder/lead educator at Photo Club.

At the most basic level, I believe that photography is a powerful art form with the ability to capture moments, empower people to do amazing things, and remind us what it is to be human. Our photography seeks to speak to the authenticity in the moments and people that we capture, while revealing and creating something a touch deeper.

Our education philosophy also stems from the same understanding. In photography mentoring, I continuously strive to enrich, uplift, and help creatives reach the potential they have hidden inside.

What our community has to say about our part of the world:

“My first photo walk was about finding pockets of light, and it’s helped me in my artistic journey to this day!!”

SabrinaPhoto Walks

“I am thankful that I met Brooke and Michael. They are amazing teachers with years of experience and get excited at sharing that knowledge and watching their students grow and improve. If you have the opportunity or are on the fence about taking a workshop or mentoring session with them, erase that doubt and do it!”

CristianShooting Portraits with Confidence

“Shooting with Michael has been incredibly impactful. Michael goes above and beyond to teach the ins and outs of the trade.”
