About Me

About Me - Image of Alex holding a camera

My name is Alex Silva, Let me explain a little about me. I used to be a Software Engineer and then switched careers to become a photographer.

Switching careers was scary, but I did it little by little, starting with photography as a hobby back in 2000. A few years later in 2007, with more experience, I started charging for my work as an additional income. At the same time I started teaching photography in small groups.

I became a full time photographer and videographer in 2018 and haven’t looked back. My specialty is corporate portraits, but I also shoot look books and advertising campaigns.

Sharing what I know has always been a passion for me, that’s why I started teaching. Nowadays I teach at two universities and it’s a great experience. However, in order to reach more people, I started my blog and YouTube channel.

Now that you now more about me, visit this website regularly or subscribe to my channel. This way you’ll learn more about photography in general, and photography lighting in particular.
