About Me

Before any formal education in the art form, Alex’s love of photography drove him to travel the world. After travelling for no less than seven years and building up a strong portfolio, he eventually enrolled at RMIT to take the profession further.

Alex works as a staff photographer for the Herald Sun, a News Corp publication in Melbourne, Australia. He has now been there for over 20 years. Working as a press photographer has allowed him to develop a wide variety of skills over multiple disciplines. Photography is not only his profession; it’s also his hobby. During his employment at News Corp Alex has covered major news events including, but not limited to, two tsunamis disasters, bushfires too numerous to mention, three Olympic Games events, two Commonwealth Games events, and a multitude of major events in Melbourne and nationally for the company. Alex’s love affair with travel and photography continues to this day and sees no sign of ceasing.
