My photography has a dual character - artistic expression as a main tool - and lifestyle compositions with reflected light during exposures.

Welcome


I love photography because it really allows me to look at things through a different angle, or a different lens and to “Capture Life”.

My name is Alex

I first started experimenting with photography when, on my 10th birthday, my dad gave me my very own camera, Smena 8M, and an exposimeter, Leningrad 4, (which I still have). This was a time of black and white prints, film, and dark rooms. I was so fascinated with this new undertaking that I would take pictures of absolutely everything and anything; architecture, friends, animals, nature, as well as screen shots of cartoon characters directly from the television screen, which I would then sell to my classmates in school during recess.

Continuing my photography venture, my second camera was Zenit-E with a 50mm f/2 lens. I used this camera all through the late 90’s. A few years later, digital cameras were the new discovery and that’s when I started using Canon. My collection of photography multiplied by thousands. During this time, I traveled to many places, including Poland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Lithuania, Egypt, and Turkey and I always sought opportunities to capture great shots.

Although I have many years of experience, I constantly look to perfect my skills. I’ve recently taken a series of photography courses from a school in New York and greatly enjoyed challenging myself and learning from other photographers.

I love photography because it really allows me to look at things through a different angle, or a different lens and to “Capture Life”.

Special thanks to people that inspire me to continue working hard, pursuing my dreams and overcoming obstacles – my wife, my parents, and my friends.


I hope you enjoy my collection!

If there would be an option I would give Alex 10 stars. I've been very nervous about booking a photoshoot for our kids. But Alex was able to create some beautiful memories in the chaos of fussy baby and a super active toddler. In about an hour he was able to make more beautiful natural shots than I ever thought possible. He was on time, super patient and very kind and easy going, which made experience easy and very pain free for an over stressed mother :) Alex is very good with kids, my 2 year old was very comfortable with him and posed like no tomorrow! I cannot say enough how happy I am that session was quick and not dragging!! Before we knew it Alex wrapped up. And we ended up with tons of beautiful shots. Very grateful for Such a wonderful experience!

Alex photographed our newborn son, and my wife and I are eternally grateful that he did. We will cherish these images forever. Alex arrived on time and immediately got to work. He made our family feel at ease with his presence and more importantly the camera's presence. He was quick to capture the often fleeting expressions of our newborn and was very respectful of our sons safety and comfort in composing shots. The digital images were promptly delivered to us and my wife and I were amazed at the quality. Being a great photographer requires both mastering the technical aspects of photography, including the hardware and lighting, and also the presence of a creative vision, or minds eye. Alex possesses both of these qualities in abundance, but most importantly he has the people skills to allow his subjects to relax in front of the camera. We are eternally grateful to have the images Alex produced and they could not have better captured this special moment in our young family's life. Thank you Alex. Highly recommended.

Awesome experience! Alex made me feel so comfortable and was great at listening and giving his opinion in a kind and professional way. My photos turned out great ! I would highly recommend Alex Vakulin Photography!

This is my second time doing a photo shoot with Alex. He keeps getting better and better. He lets me do some poses on my own and he would capture every moment. When I get stuck, he would direct me what to do. He has a creative eye and knows how to compose with what you're wearing. The type of photos I've done with Alex are professional photos to update my Linked In and for fashion purposes. I would work with him in the near future. He is my go to photographer. I highly recommend working with him.
