Photographer Alexander Nesbitt
Newport adventure photographer Alexander “Sandy” Nesbitt shoots adventurous travel, outdoor lifestyle, commercial, and fine art images. Sandy is from Newport, Rhode Island – where he has based his fine art print gallery, working studio, and entire stock image library since 1998.
Sandy has been satisfying clients’ needs for technical, mobile and remote location photography both here and abroad for more than a decade. Clients have recognized his unique ability to hold a specific message in mind while shooting which allows his images to feel remarkably authentic. Sandy produces uniquely on target images from real life situations around him.
Grounded on his technical and artistic training at Pratt Institute, Sandy’s work has evolved through wide-ranging documentary, artistic, journalistic, and commercial assignments. Initially, he was inspired by the harsh, yet vibrant city landscape around his apartment in New York’s late 80′s Lower East Side, and the street photography of Pratt professor Philip Perkis. Sandy then dove into shooting, producing a visceral collection of black and white work. In time this lead to a documentary shooting workshop with Mary Ellen Mark. From there he taught himself the realities of difficult photojournalism on a multi-year personal project in the City of the Dead in Cairo, Egypt.
An accomplished professional photographer, Sandy is ready to put his world travel skills and innate sense of authenticity to work on your advertising and editorial projects.
His collection of fine art prints can be seen online, in person at his RI studio, or in his gallery. Sandy is a master printer and offers a range of dramatic giclée prints of his most thought provoking and beautiful images all printed himself in limited editions and available in the studio, the gallery, or by order online here.
