About Me

With a career in professional photography spanning 22 years, Alex’s passion began with travel, and further education at Melbourne’s RMIT.

Alex worked as a staff photographer for News Corp Australia for 21 years. Working as a press photographer afforded him to develop a wide variety of skills over multiple disciplines. During his employment at News Corp Alex covered major breaking news events including tsunamis, natural disasters and countless bushfires. He covered three Olympic Games, two Commonwealth Games, and a multitude of major events nationally. 

Alex’s services range from editorial to commercial campaigns, lifestyle and portraiture, architecture or aerials, sporting events and special interest. 

His passion for underwater photography has driven him to travel to some incredible destinations, and with extensive lighting skills, the ability to work under pressure and deliver to fast deadlines, he can be anywhere at a moment’s notice.
