About Alex - Beyond a Beaten Path

As a kid, I lived in many countries and travelled quite often due to my father's work. It instilled a sense of adventure in me and I live to see and explore the world. I am fascinated by different countries and cultures. I love to capture the beauty I see and share that through my photography.


My mother is an excellent painter. While she doesn't paint as much as she used to, through her work, I learned that photography, like painting, is an art. This may sound funny but everything I shoot is with feeling; I see something I like, be it a building or landscape, choose my angle and fire away so to speak.


I shoot in a technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range). It appeals to me because I feel that I can capture a great amount of detail, light and reproduce close to what our eyes can see as opposed to traditional photos that can end up looking somewhat flat.
