What's your business, and who are your customers?

My goal is to capture Magazine Worthy photos. My customers are couples, families, and people who value quality and style. I work in Boston, Cape Cod, all over New England, and beyond.

Tell us about yourself

My father taught me how to use film cameras when I was a young child. We would often spend time in the darkroom developing negatives and prints. Ever since then, photography has been a great passion of mine. After getting my degree in 2007, I have been a full-time photographer for over 15 years, traveling to Europe, Indonesia, Asia, and the United States. Being multilingual has helped me understand and appreciate many different cultures. I am always up for portrait sessions, fashion photoshoots, and individual photo projects, and I am open to collaborations. If you have any ideas that you would like to share, please do not hesitate to contact me.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I was named one of the top 50 World Photographers by WPJA and had 45+ Wedding Photography Awards. Alex Gordias Photography is growing fast.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Being all in one to operate the business and keep everything up to date.
