About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My images are bold and accurate in their representation of the moment captured. I bring professionalism and a "fly on the wall" mentality where I observe and capture what crosses my field of vision, but don't get involved. However, I'm not afraid to ask questions, climb to a high spot, get dirty, travel across the world, or get in the middle of things. My thoroughness and passion shine through my photos and my efficiency and punctuality bring a smile to editors and brides alike.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The people. I get to meet and work with incredible people. Passionate, suffering, in love, excited, upset, the entire spectrum of human emotion passes my lens and the moments I capture and show a realness and connectedness to our humanity regardless of our location on the planet.

    Alex documented our small and low-key beach-side wedding last summer. We wanted more of a 'documenting' then the usual posed pictures and that is exactly what we got. He was easy and friendly to deal with, which was nice. He was professional and quick with turn around. The real thing I wanted to review were the pictures though. I hate photos of myself generally, but loved the ones he took. He managed to capture the day and the mood. Even the ones we kind of posed for look very natural under his direction. I would recommend him highly. We had an embarrassing giggle fest when I got my left and right confused and the ring got stuck on my husband's right hand. We were trying to get it off while everyone was distracted in the ceremony. I particularly liked how he caught that too! We are already expecting our first child and will hire him again.

    Alex was wonderful! he was punctual, professional, and very talented. Gave great direction as far as poses and my photos are just perfect. I'm so glad I was able to shoot with him on my stay in Seattle. I will use him again on my next visit. I highly recommend!

    Alex was hired to take photographs of me and my business partner at a site chosen by me. From the beginning of our interaction, Alex promptly responded to my questions. He was on time for the shoot, personable, and easy to work with. The proofs were to me in less than two days. I highly recommend Alex Garland for any of your photography needs.

    Alex is a bottomless well of talent. The photographs he provides to Real Change News are outstanding. Looking on social media and other local news sources, I can tell that he's a tireless worker. I also appreciate his dedication to ethical photojournalism.

    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!!
