My name is Dave Alexander.


In 1989 I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I haven't, nor have I ever had the accent.

In 1991 I relocated to Manchester, England with my family.

I originally studied Graphic Design. I graduated from The University of Central Lancashire in 2012, after falling in love with the darkroom and realising I never wanted to be a designer. Instead, shortly afterwards, I relocated to London for 2 years and worked as a photographer's assistant.

In 2014 I returned to Manchester, where I currently reside. My work has thrown me through a few time zones since then; London, Los Angeles, Reykjavik, Ancona, Barcelona, Paris, Istanbul, and Munich to name a few. And then of course, Manchester.

My advertising and editorial clients include Lacoste, H&M, Universal Music Group, Nike, Esquire Magazine, Island Records, Religion, AQ/AQ, Represent Clothing, Donald Schneider Studio, Ihani & Maechi, Highsnobiety Magazine, SCHÖN Magazine, HYPEBEAST, Foot Asylum, FIASCO Magazine, Fucking Young!, RISK Magazine, Noctis Magazine and The British Journal of Photography.
