2008 Salisbury Plain on South Georgia Island

My name is Alex and photography has been a hobby since my grandmother introduced me to it during my seventh year on earth.  Up until the 2000s it was fun to shoot, but the 2000s took me to a point where I started earning a little money for my photography.  Had I not accepted a career change in Vermont, it is possible I would have tried to earn a living behind the lens…at least a few more dollars on the side.

Unfortunately for my photography, the first 4 years in Vermont equated to maybe 100 photos in total.  A joke!  That time off, from shooting, was spent socializing and working on building a CRM system from scratch (the reason for moving to Vermont).  And that time off is a major regret I’m rapidly paying for!  Vermont is beautiful and I’m really enjoying discovering places outside of Chittenden county (Burlington area).  Landscapes and wildlife are my favorite subjects here and you can expect to see a lot more of each on this blog.

Nigerians, Russians, Hong Kongians, and all those other places around the world that harvest spammers…I deal with your crap enough at work, if I had a nuke key on my keyboard, you’d all be blown off the planet.  I hate your guts, so don’t even try to take advantage of this site.  It is easy enough for me to delete your comment and report you…and I will do both.

I am a big fan of giving credit to the author or artist, and try to do that whenever possible.  I do find a lot of images and material through Google, and sometimes there is no author to credit.  If you find anything on this site that belongs to you, and I have not given you proper credit, please let me know.  If you hold copyright to something that shouldn’t be on here, I’ll take it down upon your request.  There is no need to serve legal papers to me to get that done.

    Great adventures! I like your photos too. I came over from your Smugmug site and it was nice to read the stories behind the photos but it would have been even better if your Smugmug photos had captions as well.

    Enjoy your trip to Antarctica – I’m supremely jealous! Please keep up the great work too, and don’t take my suggestion as critism – it is just a suggestion 😉

    Thanks for the comment and compliments Angela!

    I’m shocked you already found this blog – I just made it yesterday. Yes, there is still a lot to do, and your suggestion has been well noted – thank you!

    Only another 6 weeks till I leave for the deep, deep, deep South….can’t wait!!!

    Cool blog, Aelx. I can’t wait to see your pictures form the deep south! Maybe a self portrait with a penguin?

    Good Luck!

    It seems that you did quite a bit of traveling as a kid. Were you a military brat? I ask since my wife was and I am a jarhead myself.

  5. axspot says:

    Thanks for commenting Troy.

    No, none of my immediate family has been in the military during my lifetime. I am just fortunate to be a part of a family who loves to travel and has the means to do so!

    The only military left in the family (and he’s retiring soon) is an uncle who was Chief of Staff for the Truman group.

    We all certainly appreciate everything the military does; especially living in the Hampton Roads area – Thank You!

  6. Thoroughly enjoyable in every way, Alex. You are a pro. I’d ask you all kinds of questions, but you answered them all in your detailed account. Wish I wasn’t such a lund-lubber – aka ole chummer; I’d be planning an expedition.

    Keep up the great life. Best regards, George

    Ironically…we have the same name…and are both photographers!

    I just found your website the other day – you do some good shooting! Definitely ironic and funny on the name and hobby part.

    Your Costa Rica map is erroring out. I looks like the map no longer exists.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I linked it in from another site, but will fix it.

    Hi. I am a web designer and I have come across an image which I would like to use on one of my websites. Would you be happy for me to do so providing I place a link back to your website?

    thanks,
    Stephen
