Rising star

Alex is a nature photographer turned instagram preppy fashion account.  I can’t remember exactly when he became visible on my radar, but now that he’s here, his work is very hard to ignore.  He maintains a perfect balance of trees, himself, preppy clothes, and perfectly staged items. He hasn’t been shooting photos for very long, but you’ll quickly notice that understands basics like the rule of thirds, composition, and exposure. It’s no wonder his photos receive a considerable amount of attention compared to number of instagram followers he has.

Prep for less

Alex’s nature photography is balanced by his keen sense of fashion. His look is built on a preppy foundation with and outdoor adventurous feel. Alex isn’t ashamed to mention that his budget is rather modest, and that he prefers to buy sale and used items when possible.  During our conversation, we both agreed that style is found everywhere. If you find an item you love at a thrift store or some other less than glamorous place,  buy it.


He’s always been an artist

Even though Alex is new to photography, He’s no stranger to the arts. In addition to fashion and nature photography, Alex uses colored pencils and plays the piano. He is considering a career a in the art world, but he’s still in high school. He has time to decide. When we first attempted to record the episode, Alex was preparing for a big  test the following morning. He’s a sharp guy, I’m sure he did well.
