Rex Alfes Photography

Rex's interest in photography started at a very young age and continued into his high school years through the 80's. He attended photography classes whenever he could and participated in the usual school and community art/photo activities including an emphasis in theater production, as well as the student produced school news bulletin. After high school he was off to the Air Force and the beginning of a career of 22 years of various military service; always with a camera nearby for those once in a lifetime personal photo diary opportunities.

Fast forward 22+ years, retired military (including Desert Storm Gulf War duty), 2 engineering degrees, a business degree and a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, Rex can now devote his energy to his life long passion of photography.

While Rex focuses on commercial and editorial photography, his additional specialties include High School Senior Portraits, Family Portraits, Still Life, Nature & Wildlife, and commercial / advertising as well as all styles of people photography including location portraits, children, baby portraits, family events, and portfolio photography..

Rex currently uses Nikon digital cameras. Lenses include Nikkor, Sigma, Quantry, and lenbabies. He also uses portable and semi-portable equipment, including lights, stands, and backdrops for any "on location" portable studio needs.

As a subscriber to the principle of lifelong learning, Rex continually looks for ways to expand his skills and knowledge. When he works with his retail clients, he looks for those opportunities that not only capture the moment in time, but also provide a lifetime of memories. For his commercial and corporate clients he strives to bring his clients vision to life.
