Ohio Elite is extremely excited to announce a partnership with Allan West Photography.  Allan has done work with Sports Illustrated, NFL Films, GQ, and Goal Nation.  We are proud to have him working directly with our club to provide our families with the opportunity to preserve lifelong memories with the professionalism that Allan's photos provide.

Allan has been close to soccer for much of his life.  Having children that played the game at a high level and his time as an official have given him a unique first hand experience of the game.  If you have ever seen Allan on the sideline as a parent or between the lines as an official, you know just how charismatic and passionate he is about the sport.  "His passion and charisma are contagious.  Allan has been an official for many of my games and I can honestly say that even when we agree to disagree, we do so with a laugh."  - Scott Sievering, Boys Director of Coaching.  

From my first meeting with Allan and seeing his work, I knew that we had something that could be a long term partnership.  Our families will have access to the highest quality of professional photography to preserve the memories of their child's time at Ohio Elite."  - Tim Lesiak, Executive Director of Ohio Elite.

For us at A. West Photography, our partnership with Ohio Elite is a dream come true.  We have the opportunity to provide a lasting memory to the players and families of one of the top clubs in the country.  As a soccer parent myself,  I absolutely enjoyed watching my kids play.  Then as a photographer I enjoyed the photo's of them and watching them grow before our eyes.  Even more was the lasting friendships that we made with the parents on the teams.  In partnering with Ohio Elite we will provide that memory to the club, the players, and their families.  As a photographer for Sport Illustrated, I have traveled to many places and have been blessed to see many things, but being close to home has a bit more meaning. As a photo journalist I will do my absolute best to maintain the high standard that Ohio Elite has for its players with the photos that we provide to club and its families.  We would like to thank Ohio Elite for welcoming us into your family."  - Allan West
