Alex is one of Australia’s most awarded and widely published animal portrait photographers. Her natural animal handling skills, outstanding images and substantial contribution to improving the lives of rescued animals and endangered wildlife has earned her the reputation as one of Australia’s best and most trusted animal photographers.
She is also one of the few professional female photographers worldwide to lead ecologically sound, animal adventure tours to incredible animal destinations. Inspired by the joy of discovery, Alex has traveled to all seven continents.
Alex hosts two types of tours: Global Wildlife Tours where she is the sole photography leader and Island Light Tours in collaboration with esteemed landscape photographer Tony Hewitt.
GLOBAL TOURS HOSTED BY ALEX CEARNS
In partnership with World Expeditions and the best local tour companies available, Alex leads friendly, all inclusive, small group tours to some of the most extraordinary wildlife locations on Earth.
Past tours include Antarctica, Argentina, Christmas Island, Cambodia, India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, the Galapagos Islands and into the Amazon Basin in Ecuador.
On tour, Alex ensures participants create some of the best images they’ve ever taken by sharing the technical secrets she uses to create her own masterpieces and by working closely with local guides to ensure every photographic opportunity is maximised.
Her warm leadership, extensive knowledge and generous individual tuition (as little or as much as you want), helps everyone immerse themselves in the trip of a lifetime.
Alex’s global tours are very sought after and tend to book out years in advance.
