About Alex

Family and Commercial Portrait Photographer

My name is Alex Rickard and I’ve been running my professional photography business for over 10 years. I work mainly in Sussex and the surrounding areas and enjoy making the most of the beautiful countryside around us.

I worked as a Picture Editor on newspapers and magazines for many years and that’s where my passion and ‘eye’ for photography began.  After having my children (now in their late teens!) I really began to learn the technicalities of photography and after sharing my images online I was encouraged by friends to pursue my photography dreams.  I can honestly say I’ve never looked back!

I have a passion for learning (you could call me a workshop junkie!) and have enjoyed developing my skills even further over the lockdown period.  I’ve focused more on lighting and product photography and have a built a cabin in my garden (my little piece of heaven) where I spend a lot of my time.

I’ve recently expanded my business to include more commercial shootsheadshots, personal branding, school marketing photography and events but my love for photographing children and families remains.

I adore teaching photography skills to children (encouraging them to look at the world a little differently) and also teach adults on a one-to-one basis.  

I’d love to hear about your family or business and what you’d like to achieve… Please get in touch using the form below.
