Alex Garland

Thanks for visiting my site.
I'm a local freelance photographer based in the greater Seattle area. My travel experience allows me the comfort to shoot on location, anywhere in
the world.

I have a deep passion for photography and the messages saved and shared by capturing a moment in time. Photojournalism is the path I'm on and I find a sense of clarity and direction while working as an objective journalist. I enjoy food photography, as I see beauty in all things, but I'd love to be your guy for engagements, bridal shoots, weddings, fun and funky family portraits, theatrical head shots, professional head shots, little kids, big kids, parties, and special events.

You want a photographer that captures the funny, the endearing, and the unforgettable and I aim to please. If you have any questions, send me an email and I'll be back with you in a flash. I'm usually plugged in (unless I'm taking photos) so email works best.

Just in case you're interested in what I work with...

Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L USM II
Canon 50mm 1.2 L USM

"Alex is an amazing photographer! I cannot count how many people said they were impressed with his way of interacting with people, his skill and most of all his work! The photos are amazing, he uses light in such a great way! We very much enjoy having Alex as our "official Permanent Farms" photographer. We recommend him to anyone. And we have multiple times! Additionally, he was very quick to respond and always cheerful and courteous. A joy to be around! Thanks again Alex!! - Troy S."

"I recently hired Alex to photograph my daughter's wedding. His work was excellent and we were more than satisfied with our choice. He was very easy to work with as we did not have a large planning window. I also appreciated his creativity and desire to provide a personal and memorable pictorial of the evening. I highly recommend Alex and would not hesitate to work with him on a commercial level as well. - Vicky D."

"I hired Alex Garland to take an overhead photo of a group of 250 people at a local event. The photographs came out wonderful, and I am thrilled with the final result. Alex's expertise was crucial for planning the layout of the event; from setting up the lift to directing people where to stand, Alex really went above and beyond his role as photographer to help make the day a success. As an event planner, I truly appreciated Alex's calm demeanor and ability to make quick decisions. In the hectic moments leading up to an event, these traits, coupled with his natural artistic talent, make Alex Garland the ideal event photographer. - Wendy M."]
