Advocacy and community organizing can be condensed into one simple word: storytelling. Not only does Alex understand the deep importance of story in creating our past, present, and future - he also possesses the unique skill of transforming the lens of his camera into a compelling voice, an incisive pen. Alex’s images help define, elaborate, and enrich the stories of this world.

Alex has been a really receptive translator for my company and what we represent. His translation abilities and creative skill brings the unique story of each entrepreneur.

Alex snapped some excellent professional photos of me the other week in Chiang Mai. We did a few different sets, in a few different locations, and I was extremely satisfied with his work. He provides high-value photography work and is a pleasure to spend time with.

I was invited to participate in the Wild Women 2017 Calendar photo shoot in Oregon. Not really knowing what to expect, I was both nervous and excited. The moment I met Alex I felt comfortable and once we began shooting I was completely at ease. Alex wasted no time setting up the perfect locations and watching him work with the camera was like watching a synchronized dance. His heart and soul shines through his lens and the art he creates is brilliant.

Alex is a joy to work with! We were able to be ourselves for our engagement shoot because he made us feel comfortable. The best part of working with him was how he made the entire process easy and fun! We are so glad we found Alex to be our photographer. We love the photos and he delivered it fast. We highly recommend Alex!

Alex was absolutely terrific as our main man to build our website and webstore. He was great with the tricky technical details and also awesome with the big-picture concept, and helping us convey that often elusive “just right” look and feel that truly expressed who and what Solay Superfood is.

Alex's video skills really impressed me. He did a great job listening to what I was going for and helped bring out the best of what I had to offer. He was professional, detailed and there was a timely turnaround. The video and audio quality was excellent and he was even helpful in the post production. I really feel he cared about my project and helped me see it through to the end. I would work with Alex again in a heartbeat.

Alex’s photography makes the San Juan Mountains come to life, for even those who have never touched foot in southern Colorado. His photos have brought new life to our website.

Alex is incredible to work with. He's professional and well presented and easily makes any interviewee comfortable. I had the opportunity to work with Alex on a video and he seamlessly worked my ideas and his together in a way that enhanced the piece. He graciously accepts constructive criticism and new ideas for the work he does for you, and the result is amazing. We at SJCA loved working with Alex and are excited to work with him again!

Alex photographed our wedding in Forks, WA outside of Olympic National Park. He did an amazing job capturing the spontaneous beauty of the location and our wonderful small group. His relaxed, creative and personable vibe made it very easy to take a variety of eclectic group photos. We really appreciated having you as a part of our group and it obviously paid off....we have a ton of really unique photos to remember our day by. Thanks Alex!

Alex is an amazing photographer. He captured so many beautiful moments of our wedding. Also he is wonderful to work with very personable and understanding of all family dynamics. I would recommend him for all events you can think of.

Alex worked with me and provided a scientific graphic which depicts a relatively complicated experimental design and associated results. His service was effective in asking me questions to ensure he understood my desired product to his fullest potential and continued to submit drafts to me to ensure that he was on the right track.
Alex was very swift in developing initial drafts and met a very tight deadline I posed with ease. He made the process easy and enjoyable. Communication was frequent and well appreciated given our geographic separation. Working with Alex was incredibly pleasurable.
In the end, the final product is exactly what I was looking for and of high quality. I have used the same graphic in presentations and posters and receive excellent feedback from my colleagues and audience members.
Overall, I would highly recommend Alex's services to others, he delivers a high quality product while maintaining effective communication and quality assurance through out the process. He is also easy and enjoyable to work with making hiring him a choice decision.

Alex photographed and made prints of one of my paintings for me. He nailed it on the colors! The subtle changes of tone in the blue water and the pinks in the sunset were perfectly replicated in the printed versions. Great artist, very timely, and most importantly, a pleasure to work with.

Alex has been invaluable to me and my work on The Enemies Project. Alex assisted me on a very logistically and emotionally challenging project in Kashmir on the border of India and Pakistan. For two and a half months we traveled in an area that was frequently closed down by military police. We met with former militants and surviving spouses of a decades long conflict. Alex's calm and generous presence made this difficult work immensely easier than it would have been alone. In our time together, Alex helped with nearly every logistical need that arose while working in a difficult area. He kept meticulous notes and provided me with the invaluable service of a second set of ears and eyes to record emotionally charged interviews while we were photographing.
Since our time working together, Alex has honed his craft even more. He is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. Alex does nothing without passion. I recommend him highly.

I hired Alex on a last-minute project to photograph a large event with high-level invitees including U.S. Congressmen and U.S. Senators as well as local elected officials and community VIPs. Alex was timely in his responses, easy to collaborate with, and very professional. His photographs came out very well, and he sent them to me on the same day for our press outreach. He was a joy to work with.
Micha Rosenoer SW Field Organizer, Conservation Colorado December 17, 2015
We hired Alex to photograph our wedding. He was enthusiastic about our special day leading up to the big event. When it came to our rehearsal they day before our wedding, Alex took the time to get some photos of us practicing where we would be standing and my dad walking me down the isle. These were fun photos and have some framed in our house today. Alex also scoped out the property to learn where he would position himself to get the best shot. After this the photos continued at our rehearsal dinner and moments were captured with family I do not get the pleasure of seeing often. These were special moments too.
When it was finally our big day, Alex was one of the first people to arrive at our venue so he could get an early start with photos of decorations and set up. Once the grooms party arrived, Alex started getting photos of them drinking a few beers and checking out the property. As soon as my bridesmaids and I arrived, Alex jumped right into all the glitz and glam.
As my father and I began to walk down the isle, Alex was there capturing it all. Every moment a girl wishes for on her wedding day is what was captured by his camera. My fondest memories with the man I love, celebrating with the people we love and cherish the most. Without Alex's creativity and "outside of the box" thinking our wedding photos would not have been so unique and great!
