Photos of Fernando de Noronha

I recently visited the stunning island archipelago of 21 islands called Fernando de Noronha to take photos of its stunning beaches and landscapes. Fernando de Noronha is around 354 km offshore from the Brazilian coast in the Atlantic Ocean. Fernando de Noronoha’s rich waters are a very important breeding area for sharks, turtles, tunas and marine mammals. It also has a healthy population of dolphins and has abundant underwater species. For divers and snorkelers this is a paradise. Also for a photographer that would sound enough, but it also boasts absolutely stunning pristine tropical beaches, with amazing volcanic structures, which rise from the ocean floor some 4,000 m in depth. It is also a protected national park and has a restricted number of visitors each day in order to maintain this special environment.

Photos of the birds of Ubatuba

I have just returned from a short photo trip to Ubatuba in Brazil. Ubatuba is a region in the state of Sao Paulo and a very photogenic one. It is situated on the northern coast of Sao Paulo state and is a couple of hours drive away from the massive metropolis Sao Paulo.

Photos of Ouro Preto

I recently visited the beautiful city of Ouro Preto to take photos. I can confirm that Ouro Preto is one of the most photogenic places i have ever visited. Ouro Preto is a former colonial mining town situated in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains which are in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It was and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Ouro Preto means black gold, it was the main location of the 18th century gold rush and Brazil’s golden age under Portuguese rule.

Photos of Ilha Grande, Brazil

I have just recently returned from a trip to the island of Ilha Grande off the coast of Rio de Janeiro State in Brazil. I managed to take a few photos from Ilha Grande to share with you. Although it was more of a relaxing holiday rather than photo trip.

    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 🙂

    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.
