New Website Host SiteGround

I dont normally post sales posts but I felt inclined this time. I recently decided to do something about the VERY slow speeds my site was at. After reading a multitude of reviews I made the decision to switch to Siteground.

Photos of Iceland

This January I made a trip to one of my all-time favourite destinations so far on my travels, Iceland. I had travelled to Iceland around 8 years ago, after meeting several Icelandic photographers who had become online friends through a photo competition website called dpchallenge. That photo trip back then was one of my first, but still most memorable, especially for landscape photography.

Photos of Lençóis Maranhenses

One of the most unique and spectacular places for photography you will see in Brazil, and possibly the world, is the Lençóis Maranhenses national park in Maranhão state in north-eastern Brazil. The word Lençóis in Portuguese means sheets and this describes the beautiful shapes and silk smooth landscapes of endless dunes. It makes for some pretty amazing photos of Lençóis Maranhenses indeed. And what makes this place so unique is the water lagoons formed during the rainy season each year. The entire park area is around 1,500 km2.

Photos of Chapada Diamantina

Last week I made the journey from Sao Paulo to Chapada Diamantina in Bahia State, Brazil. I had always been told that this is one of Brazil’s top wild destinations and a stunning place for photos. Full of waterfalls, canyons and stunning landscapes. It is about a 2 hours plus flight to Bahia’s capital Salvador from Sao Paulo. From there you can take a 6 hour long coach ride to Lencois in Chapada Diamantina. Alternatively there are infrequent flights approx 50mins- 1hour flight time on Sundays and Thursdays with Azul.

    Hi Alex,
    I hope you are well.
    I’m doing some work with Will Taper at Willmotts a small property firm in Hammersmith.
    We will be printing some Christmas cards to send to clients, would you be interested in supplying a winter image?
    I saw a photo of yours, a robin in Richmond park with a snowy background, plus we could advertise your book on the back of the card?
    Let me know your thoughts.
    All the best,

    Dear Alex
    I really admire your photography. In particular I would love to paint/ be inspired towards painting something from your Richmond Park Deer photo.
    I’m a semi professional Artist, and the painting may get sold at our art society exhibition.

    Would you give me your permission to do this? I will of course attribute my inspiration to you.

    I’m not sure how these things work, but wanted to check with you.

    Very Kind Regards
    Hannah Bruce

      Hello Alex
      My name is Ann Hawkins. I am so happy to have found you. I wrote and illustrated an environmental children;s book. It took me 16 years to pain because I had to teach myself. I am getting ready to publish it on create space.

      One of my paintings is your swan photograph on the misty river with the oak trees on the bank. I have added many things to it such as extra swans, some deer and an large oak on the river bank as I was trying to add additional things for small children to point to, count etc. however the original swan and background are basically copied from your photo.

      I could send you a picture of that particular painting for you to look at. I am hoping to get your permission to include in my book. Worst case scenario I could replace that photo with my bat painting.
      There are 32 paintings total. Only one other painting of a bunny in a clearing closely resembled my finished painting. I found that photographer months back. National Geographic said they couldn’t help me research photographers. I tried everything I could think of to find you except the actual NG website.

      I am donating 10% of any profits I might make to water. org.

    Hello, I am doing a photographer study for my photography course and I was wondering if I could email you and ask you a few questions such as how did you get into photography ect…

    Thank you for your time,

    Hello Alex, My name is Ann Hawkins. I live in the United States. I need to ask your permission to use a variation of one of your photos. I written and environmental children’s book . I wrote the story 16 years ago and have taught myself how to paint mostly by using national geographic photos. One of my book illustrations uses your swan photo as a main theme.

    I was hoping to get your permission to keep my painting the way it is. I am self publishing my book so I you do not approve I will remove it from my book. I would be happy to send you a copy of the whole book or just the painting I am referring to.

    Sincerely, Ann Hawkins

    You published an article titled, “Friday the 13th Is Back. Here’s Why It Scares Us.” Friday the 13th has deeper roots than the one you mentioned. The angel of death came to Egypt on Friday the 13th of the month and killed the first born of all living creatures, including man, because they refused to obey the God of the Bible and “let my people go.” That is the origin of Friday the 13th! 🙂

      Hi Tom, thanks for the information. Actually it was just my photo they used for the article. Someone else had written it 🙂

    Simply fabulous photography! I am a ‘hobby watercolorist’. Would love to get your permission to work off of one of your photos as a reference of an elk.

    Bonjour Alex, j’adore votre travail, je suis peintre sur feuilles d’arbres et je voulais vous demander la permission de m’inspirer d’une de vos photos de cerf pour réaliser une miniature.
    Merci d’avance pour votre réponse en espérant que cela sera possible.
