Alexander Drecun is a Los Angeles-based photographer with a broad portfolio of work and skillsets that he would like to attribute to hard work, dedication, and diverse interests, but, if he’s being honest, is 87% luck. He has had hundreds of images of portraiture and photojournalism published, shot for architecture, interior design, real estate development firms, and produced mouth-watering imagery for restaurants all over the LA-area; he has also built an art practice around street photography and landscapes. In short, he is very easily interested and enjoys pointing a camera at almost anything with the goal of communicating elegantly and accurately the things he finds interesting.

More about Alexander D....

What do you love about your job?

I spent about five years shooting lawyers and judges for a legal newspaper, and I heard “I’m the least photogenic person you’ve ever met” more times than I could count. The best part about the job was turning the camera around, showing them their photos, and seeing them smile as they said, “Hey, that’s actually not bad!” At some level, I think most non-photographers struggle with the feeling that the camera never flatters; instead, it is unkind and misrepresenting. What I enjoy most is getting a camera to produce the kinds of images my clients feel actually get to say, “Yes, that’s it!”

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I’ve been a professional photographer for more than ten years, and, at this point, I’ve done too many shoots to count. But I know what makes each of my shoots special is the enthusiasm I communicate to my subjects/clients. Because I’m not just there to do work for them. Making great images is personally meaningful to me, and I’m extremely excited each time I make one. I don’t think people expect their photographer to be as excited about their images as they are, but I always am.

A fun fact about this photographer

I'm probably the only world champion at something you've ever met. While in high school, I won a World Pipe Band Championship with my school's bagpipe band.
