about me >
Hey! I'm Alex, a freelance photographer and videographer with 5 years experience producing visuals for all sorts of businesses.
I’ve spent most of my life living in-and-around London, however a recent move to Dublin now means you’ll more likely find me at The Tara Building.
Since graduating from Liverpool University back in 2009, I've spent the last 10 years working solidly in the creative services sector.
Initially I worked as a Creative Strategist at two advertising agencies in Soho, London. But after 5 years I decided to pursue a career as a photographer and set up my own company.
Since then, there’s been no looking back. I've been commissioned and/or published by all of the organisations you see below and currently hold contributor contracts with Trinity-Mirror, Alamy Images and REX Shutterstock.
I'd probably describe myself as a positive, reliable, switched on people-person who is passionate about creating stunning visuals with others. You'd probably describe me as a bit of a chatterbox (definitely got my mum to thank for that!) but I'm certainly not one of those annoying "personality is bigger than the room" type of photographers. Yuck.
Anyway, it's pretty cringe having to talk about yourself so I’ve decided to let this lot do it for me (thanks guys!) …
"Alex is fantastic photographer. He's easy to get on with, switched on, sharp and smart. He has a genuinely creative brain and is very comfortable in the hurly burly of the creative process.
