“There’s so much to learn when it comes to photography. Alex broke down all the information and made it easier to understand. I’m eager to take what I’ve learned and apply it! “- Jillian
I’m Alex Stead.
I remember the day I got my first ‘fancy’ camera and excitedly tried to figure out how to make it work – only to realize that I didn’t know where to put the memory card.
That was 14 years ago and I still remember that feeling of desperation. I wanted to know how to take one good picture without trial and error, but I was so overwhelmed with how much I had to learn. It felt like everywhere I looked there was some sort of photography training being offered, but when I got the guts to tune in, none of it made sense for where I was or what I needed.
I couldn’t move forward because I didn’t have the knowledge of how to make my camera work for me and I spent way too much time in frustration, trying to figure it all out alone.
After much trial and error and endless hours, I finally figured it out!This led me to eventually build a thriving photography business, and now my client list includes Maclean’s Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Global News, CBC, and many other places both online and in print. I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings, thousands of families, and I’ve helped over 100 budding photographers fall in love with their camera.
I’m now a photographer, content creator, and photography instructor who uses my combined skills to help people who are ready to learn.
“I took Alex’s “Learn to Love your Camera” class and she was a treat! As somebody with no prior knowledge of the camera world and it’s lingo, she laid it out perfectly for a beginner like me and I learned a lot. Alex’s understanding of her clients and their needs truly sets her apart. 11/10 recommend her classes.” – Shannelle
