At 17, Alex joined the military and left home. Looking for adventure, he challenged himself to adapt to diverse landscapes. From humid North Carolina, to the jungles of East Asia, to the beaches of Southern California. This desire to experience life and explore the unknown is also the force behind his photography. Letting go of traditional methods of working, he captures the essence of his subjects by allowing them to move freely in their environments. He strives to understand the world around him, whether shooting on assignment or personal projects, cycling with friends or exploring the city
