Thomas Allie

Hi my name is Thomas, I am a professional photographer, environmental conservationist, and devoted optimist. Since 2017 my dream has been to complete the PCT, and have spent time on the trail taking portraits of hikers. My hope is to spread optimism on trail and to promote environmental conservation with my photography. My start date is March 5, 2022, and I'll be spending most of my time on trail with my trekking pole in hand, my camera in the other.
