About Me 


Bio:

Alex is a Denver-based cinematographer focused on documentary and docu-style productions. 

He has worked on television series, documentary films, breaking news, and has a background in traditional photojournalism. His debut documentary short film, 142 Miles From Monday, premiered at film festivals around the US and UK, including the Vail Film Festival. More recently, his coverage of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma for The Weather Channel received over ten million views online.

He excels in challenging situations, and has produced work inside hurricanes, in harsh mountain environments, and in many other high pressure situations.

Alex is an adaptable cinematographer that is comfortable working as a one person crew, including as a field producer, or as part of a specialized team, and has strong crew relationships across the Rocky Mountain west.

He has worked as the MultiMedia editor for Skiing Magazine, as a newspaper photojournalist, and was a founding partner of Gociety, an outdoor adventure social network. He has been shooting professionally for 10 years.
