alex crosby photographer
I am a photography addict, I’ve had the bug ever since the darkroom at college. I bought my first camera at age 15 and have been taking photos for 23 years, there’s no need to do the maths. I now have enough kit to open my own shop and having put in a lot of practice, I actually do know what to do with it all. I’m most at home behind the lens, like all good photographers I don’t like photos of myself so much. I’m usually found in a studio in Manchester, at a corporate event in Birmingham or at a wedding on the Cornish coast. Portrait, Fashion, Event and Wedding photography are my bread and butter.
Great photography needs to be a perfect blend of style and substance - which is what I bring to the table whether it’s on a creative or commercial shoot. Although maybe I should let you be the judge of that? I’m really friendly and I don’t take myself too seriously so tend to fit right in on any shoot. Don’t let my laid back demeanor fool you, I can’t rest until the job is done, but may need a sit down when I hear “It’s a wrap”.
I’m based in Leeds but completely flexible so will happily travel anywhere you need me. In fact, the jobs that start with a taxi to the airport are usually my favourite! If you’re looking for further information, to make a booking, or just some advice on what piece of kit to buy next - please don’t hesitate to get in touch HERE.
I have fitted a lot in over the 23 years. I have shot hundreds of events, dozens of weddings and clocked up countless days in the studio. I’ve loved every minute of all of them. Some highlights include 4 day events in Casablanca and Marrakech shooting in some of the most amazing locations, an over night stay in Selfridges London to shoot a time-lapse video and stills, one of my regulars once even commandeered an entire Butlin’s holiday camp. I’ve set up studios in hotel receptions, warehouses offices and even fields. I’m lucky enough to have a studio space at home, so sometimes I just pop to the bottom of the garden.
I have the pleasure of working with many wonderful people from friends getting married to agencies and global companies, many of which become my much-loved regulars.
