I've booked Alex for both photo and video and would recommend him for both. He's professional and has a great eye, but it's his ability to engage subjects and interviewees that really makes him stand out.

We’ve used Alexander Webster photography for various business profile and event shoots over the past few years and have been really pleased with the results, and level of service offered, every time. We’d definitely recommend Alex and his team and will use them again in the future More...

I have had the pleasure of working with AWP on more than one occasion. Alex has a great approach to his work and the subjects of the shoot. His skill in working with people that are not used to being in front of a camera is fantastic. Alex takes and understands the brief immediately, he brings his vast experience to the projects, making the results far better than first imagined More...

Q&A

The subject has to be lit well. If it is a person I am shooting I always make sure that I have given them clear direction and try and make them feel relaxed, not everybody is used to having their picture taken.

What are you going to use the images or video for?
What style of photography/video do you want?

I like the flexibility of being my own boss and love being part of the creative process.

When I was a teenager a few of my older friends got SLR cameras for their birthday. Through them I had the opportunity to get some hand son experience using their cameras, I loved taking pictures using their cameras and learning from them and so I could not wait to save up and buy a camera of my own. Photography had been a hobby many years before it was my career and I still love it as much 25 years later.

I talk to the client, connect with the subjects, discuss ideas and perspectives. And share the processes and steps that follow on from the shoot (from draft cuts to image post-processing).
I focus on Quality. If it’s worth taking the time, it’s worth ensuring that the quality is as good as you can make it. Rushed jobs, editing short-cuts, cheap equipment – these are rarely useful when an image or video is released to the world.
I always have the right gear and the grey matter. Anyone can snap a shot with an smartphone, yet far fewer people can craft an image that will convey a powerful message. Even with top of the line photography equipment, a live shoot is not the time to learn how to use it. Have the best gear you can afford, and learn how to use it on your own time. Experience matters.
I am always flexible. A live shoot can be tricky, so be flexible with people and the weather, with lighting and those unforeseen events. Be flexible in post-production, and be prepared to share your work in the formats that clients need most (HD to a Facebook cover image).
