The first camera Allie Delury ever picked up was a Nikon 35mm film camera in 2008. She fell in love with the idea of black and white photography and later shifted her focus to photojournalism and news. Delury is notorious for being able to capture uncontrolled action and has been photographing Air Force missions for five years, in addition to working as a public relations manager and crisis communication expert. While deployed to Africa for seven months, Delury documented 20 missions while leading a team of four as the sole combat camera support in the entire continent of Africa. She has documented from the air and ground and obtained footage for senior leaders to use to deter the narrative of Al-Shabaab.
