Hi, I'm Alex. I'm 21 years old and I love taking pictures.

Most of my photography practice involves people and food, but I'm really excited about getting into other areas that interest me. I was lucky enough to relocate to Dumfries in Scotland (a country famed for its incredible landscapes) from my hometown in South Wales, so I'll be setting my camera up on a few hills to capture the local scenery. I haven't had the chance to try my hand at it yet, but night photography (long exposure) is something that I can't wait to practice, and hopefully they'll make great prints that I can sell to like-minded people who appreciate the beauty around them!

I mentioned food earlier, and Dumfries has a wealth of great produce. From jams and preserves, to poultry and game. Seafood is also on the menu, with businesses catering to individuals and even nationwide retailers. One of my wider aims in this photography venture is to showcase our culinary wonders, with an even wider aim of improving tourism in Dumfries and Galloway.
