Photography is clearly running in this girl's veins. Coming from a family interested in photography, Alix actually studied art direction at AAA [in Cape Town] This driven creative, however, needed something more than just having an eight to five job behind a desk. So after working at King James Advertising for about a year, she decided to throw all caution to the wind and dive head first into the huge world of photography.
She also considered taking up sewing and French classes[now that she didn't have to sit in an office all day], but that didn't work out as well as she had hoped. I myself, have bought the language learning DVD's and phrase books. You never actually do it.
Alix is a really talented photographer-in-the-making and is still learning a lot every day. Watch this space! The next big thing in fashion photography [her passion] will be Alix-Rose! She has admitted to being a fashion blog and fashion photography addict and her favourite fashion photographers include amazing talents such as Valerie Phillips, Nirrimi and Tim Walker.
"I know I have a very long way to go,
but I'm completely and utterly inspired"
