About Us

Alex VH

Since inheriting my first film camera over 25 years ago as a teenager, I’ve been honing my photographic passion and expertise. I’m classically trained in analogue photography, having achieved a B.App.Sci. in Photography from RMIT.

I was an early adopter of digital imaging, and have been at the forefront of developing photographic techniques and image editing methods to fully utilise the digital medium since.

Specialising in landscape, seascape, cityscape, and any other type of scape photography, I have more recently been exploring the possibilities of mobile phone photography, relishing the challenge of using a technically limited camera.

For the past eight years, I’ve been part of the Essendon Camera Club’s introduction to photography course leadership team, helping to develop the curriculum. However, it is my roles teaching and mentoring that I’m most passionate, sharing my knowledge and love of photography.

The photography bug caught me over 10 years ago on a trip to Europe when the results of my little point and shoot camera left me underwhelmed.

Since then I've been on an endless discovery of the possibilities of photography and fell in love with the art form.

I love what photography allows you to capture but more so, I love what photography encourages you to see. The shifting light and how it affects contours, lines and composition is just a thrilling experience. While I love portraiture and the human interaction it involves, nothing quite compares to immersing yourself in the great outdoors.

I found my spark over 10 years ago and there is nothing more satisfying when those whom I teach begin to find theirs.
