Alex’s award-winning work as a photographer and filmmaker combines a passion for environmental science (and a background in glaciology) with a love of photography and exploration. Alex travels alongside environmental scientists on research expeditions around the world, capturing stories of their adventures – from the everyday to the extraordinary, portraying the human face of science.
On his admiration of scientists, Alex comments:
“Whether they’re trekking across the wilderness for weeks, or diving into bone-chilling waters day after day, it takes a real passion for your work to be able to see it through. Every scientist I’ve ever worked with has had this trait, and it’s something I admire hugely. It doesn’t translate into graphs and data, but it’s something that can be conveyed through photographs, videos, and words.”
