"Alexander, a mighty photographer."

Neil Gaiman

Internationally Best-Selling Author and Screenwriter

 

"Alexander has been shooting Cairo Knife Fight for years now; going far out of his way to be a part of the bands experience all over NZ, and helping to share those moments through his work with our fans. When we were putting together the artwork for our debut album The Colossus and the accompanying EP The Isolator, Alexander went above and beyond to help us create iconic imagery that we're immensely proud of. He's absolutely the most enthusiastic and accommodating photographer we've ever worked with and I can't recommend him highly enough."

"I’ve known Alexander for about 5 years now. I have been an avid follower of New Zealand music for years and it was with this following I discovered Alexander. I realised Alexander was the creator of what have become my favourite live music images of all time. New Zealand is so lucky to have him as the power, precision and emotion that he has the ability to capture is truly breathtaking. His experience internationally and his incredible work ethic has cemented his status as a premier music photographer. I reached out to Alexander a while back to help me with my own photography. I wanted to learn technical skills as well as learn how to develop the timing to take a truly memorable photograph. Alexander provided me with the knowledge and yet the most important thing he gave me, and it’s something that still exists within me today is an unrelenting passion for taking pictures. Alexander takes pictures with soul and emotion. Whilst we use machines to capture a story it’s the person behind the machine who really tells it how it is. He is a hero to me, he was my inspiration to travel across the globe to pursue photography as a career. His work will always continue to inspire and his passion will be passed on to others for years to come. Arohanui brother!"
