Jeff Allen


Photography has been Jeff Allen’s life-long passion. Whether on the sidelines capturing that winning moment, bringing forth a bride’s radiant smile on her special day, stalking wildlife in national parks or perched on a ledge to create a one-of-a-kind landscape, Jeff’s technical skills, in-depth knowledge and artistic vision have made him an in-demand photographer and photo-educator all over the country. Over the years, he has taught thousands of photographers – at all levels – how to create better images in workshops and seminars throughout the country. In addition, Jeff has also worked as a manufacturer’s rep and a retail sales consultant. 

For over 15 years, Jeff has been a proud member of Tamron’s Technical Team. As a National Technical Representative, he travels the country extensively, helping people to make better images and choose equipment that’s right for them.

Jared Powers


Jared Powers, Tamron Technical Representative, gained a solid background in documentary photography while studying in Melbourne, Australia, before going on to photograph musicians around the globe. Before moving to New York, he was the Chief Photographer for a major cruise line handling Pacific and Caribbean routes. Upon landing in the Big Apple, he began managing photographic retail operations and training photographers for high profile clients such as the NY Yankees, NY Mets, U.S. Open and Rockefeller Center venues. When not out training on new Tamron lenses, you can find him most likely in some hidden corner of a city, deserted road or disused industrial complex documenting life’s oddities.
