Allio Honored as Exceptional Faces
Photographer of the Year
ATLANTA - Professional photographer Allio has been named the Exceptional Faces Photographer of the Year for 2009. This is the third time the internationally recognized photographic artist has earned this prestigious industry award, presented annually by the Exceptional Faces marketing agency to the photographer, artist, or illustrator that creates the most outstanding published image or exhibited artwork featuring one or more Exceptional Faces models.
"We are please to once again reward Allio for his original photographic work with our models," Exceptional Faces President Earl Fannin said. "He has a rare creative gift for capturing the best in our models. His photography results in magnificent worldwide promotion of our talent."
Professional figure model and trained artist Jecika Silvers was featured in the winning pictorial selected for showing in a critically acclaimed art exhibition in the fourth quarter of 2009. One image from that art exhibition also led to Jecika's selection as a featured model in an upcoming art book to be published in Australia.
"It is wonderful to again be honored by the the professional staff and management at Exceptional Faces," Allio said. "I am fortunate that Exceptional Faces and other top agencies seek me out to work with their best talent. They have a unique ability to consistently find beautiful models that make my job much easier."
Allio first won the Exceptional Faces Photographer of the Year award in 1999 with Exceptional Faces model Patti Smith, and again in 2003 with Exceptional Faces model Brittany Wade. Posing for Allio was a critical element to the successful career launch of both models. They have been extensively published since adding Allio’s photographic images to their portfolios.
Exceptional Faces is a full-service marketing agency based in Atlanta and represents some of the most beautiful and talented models in the world. Exceptional Faces specializes in pairing clients with appropriate models. They have an online presence at: www.exceptionalfaces.net.
In 2009, Allio marked his 35th year as a professional photographer and artist. He is based in Kauai, Hawaii, when not traveling the world on photographic assignments.
