If you’ve come here looking for my old website, www.visualalex.com, you’ve come to the right place, I realize it doesn’t look the same. You see, after over ten years, I’ve decided to retire that site, and relaunch as: www.alexdaleyclarkphotography.com it has been a long time coming, and I’m excited to share my work here now. Welcome.
I’ve also decided to make my passion, my focus of this new site. I live in coastal Maine, and over the years many stories have come my way about the ocean; the islands, fishing, and the working waterfront. This is the work that I’ve loved the most, and it is what I am most passionate about. Do what you love, and love what you do, right? You’ll still find some of my other work here, but I’ll be concentrating on the fisheries work from this point forward.
Many years ago I made the decision to hike the Appalachian Trail, the whole thing. Mind you, I didn’t even know if that was really possible, but once I spoke it aloud it became real. It became doable, and it became an obsession. I did it. From Springer Mountain in Georgia, to Mt. Katahdin in Maine, over the course of over six months I walked north. It was one of the best, yet most fool-hardy challenges I’ve taken on. This new website is my Springer Mountain for 2013, a New Year’s Resolution of sorts manifesting itself on the internet. I’ve spent the month of January combing through my archives, pulling work that represents the work I want to do more of. I’ve also been shooting, and talking to people in the fishing industry. I’m giddy with the excitement of the possible work coming my way. I’ve excited by the work I’ve done in the past, now that I’ve revisited it. Below are some frames from the past. New work will be posted below this post.
