The beautiful thing about photography, for me personally, is the way it makes you change your appreciation of the world around you. When i first started studying photography many years ago in 1999, it was amazing to me how I began to look around me at the world much more, and to try and appreciate the beauty of the little details of the life that surrounded me. Too often we walk around , rushing from place to place and not absorbing those little beautiful details that are all around us. Always take some time to stop and look at what's around you and appreciate it.Alex F, Photographer
My love for photography comes from an early age. But my first artistic experiences were as a young boy when my parents fortunately allowed me to indulge my creativity by drawing and painting on almost every surface of my bedroom.
Over time this grew into a serious passion for drawing and illustration as well as graffiti art. At the same time I indulged in some guitar and piano playing. All this to say i have always loved the arts and had an intense need to create and express myself in various forms.
15 years ago i picked up my first camera and fell in love with this medium that allowed me to create artistic images like i did with my illustration and painting, in a fraction of the time and i even got to keep the original, which was not the case with the former art forms! I was hooked. I set up a dark room in a spare room of the house and i was set up.
Eventually I moved to the U.K. to study Photography over 13 years ago now, with the idea of becoming a documentary film maker.
Many years on now i no longer have a dark room, as i have moved on to digital since then. But i do have my own studio and gallery in Brighton, UK. We have been running since the beginning of 2013 and it has been a great experience so far!
I do business portrait photography, family portrait photography, personal boudoir photographs & albums, wedding photography, portfolios/headshots, corporate/PR photography, live food/catering photography, and travel photography.
