Hi, I am Alex Axon. I have been thinking for many years what kind of images I wanted to take, and what kind of a photographer I was.

I still have no answer but, meanwhile, I realized that I enjoy exploring various themes and new ways of expression, experimenting different photography types and not settling just upon one.

From colorful nature images to minimalist black and white fine art shots, I know that I want to create and discover even more.
