Rindy Sumners

This is a personal posting, not having to do with my photography, but my life!

my dearest friend, and artist Rindy Sumners passed away yesterday in Sacramento, CA in a car accident. At this time I don't know exactly what happened, or the details. However, I know that she left this life too soon!

We went to high school together in Sacramento, and she was one of my closets friends, who was always supportive of me, and helped me to get to where I'm at today in my career! She was a very talented musician, vocalist and overall AMAZING person. She was one of the most outgoing, jovial, happy people I know to date, and she and I would always have fun doing whatever. I consider her to be one of my best friends, and I will deeply miss her. Its still surreal to hear that she is no longer with me in this life, I am in shock.

I will always remember her, and keep her in my heart, prayers, and dreams. There will never be such a great person as my dear friend Rindy. I love you Rindy!

My deepest sympathy and condolences to the Sumners' family, and Rick and Sandy (her parents).

Rest In Peace, Rindy Sumners 1987-2009

Update: Allen Zaki Photography August 09

Hello All,

I've been out of town a week or so, and haven't been shooting much lately. Catching up with past shoots, and looking forward to a lot of working in the coming months!

I've recently "partnered" with Oddz Magazine ( to shoot two editorial stories for their Fall Issue. My amazing Creative Team, Shaun G, Johnny Chavez, and Randy Del Rosario are helping me to execute the ideas. Stay tuned to my blog for updates, and sneak peaks!

Till then, Peace!

Archives: Monique Stateena BTS Video

This is from my shoot with Monique Stateena last year, where we shot a fashion story, along with some "lifestyle" shots on the roof.

I loved the images from this shoot so much, and we shot so many great looks that I decided to mock it up as a "proof sheet" and turn it into my newest promo card.

I hope you enjoy the video, please take a moment to go to and comment and rate it, it is much appreciated!

Till next time, Peace!

Archives: Nikko Masterpietro

These images are from a shoot I did with actor Nikko Masterpietro this past April. His agent didn't end up using them, therefore I hadn't gotten around to retouching them until yesterday. I liked his look and the styling.

So, I decided that my team and I should at least be able to use them because they did such a great job.

Thank you to Shaun G. and Caitlin Lamb for styling and grooming this shoot. Much appreciated.

Till next time, Peace!
