Alex is a working cinematographer and a third-generation photographer. He attended Columbia College Chicago where he studied multiple facets of the filmmaking industry and focused primarily on cinematography and lighting. After receiving his degree in 2009, he moved to Detroit where he freelanced for five years in both filmmaking and photography fields. Eventually he landed a position as Lead Cinematographer and Photographer with a small production company in downtown Detroit where he has been for the last three years. He still manages to work as a freelancer when time allows, but when he's not shooting, editing or working with his clients, he chooses to spend quality time with his dog, Oskar.
