About Me

About Me - Image of Alex holding a camera

My name is Alex Silva, 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.
