I do many conventional fashion, glamour, and artistic photos but also use a lot of nudity and occasional erotic content where it is appropriate to the feeling and image being portrayed. I am not afraid of sexuality, and feel that responsible sexuality exists best in an atmosphere where friendship, love, and intimacy are not scarce and we are liberated from internalised shame.
Technically, I love to experiment with light, colour, form, and with digital post processing to create unique lighting and effects. It is my goal to create many different and unique looks, and experiment with what can be achieved. As a photographer, I believe in bringing out the best in each of my models. Regardless of weight, size, or body shape, each person has a unique personality and inner beauty that can be expressed - if only it is brought out from within.
Ultimately, I create images for people to enjoy. We live in a world with many responsibilities and much work. When we finally have time of our own, it can be great to look at a thing of beauty, and after all, is there anything more beautiful than the human form?
For the past 7 years I've been doing photography, mainly for:
Maternity & Baby Photography
Fashion and lingerie labels
Portfolios for models, actors and singers
Glamour Men's magazines
Intimate shoots for Couples "Tame or Wild"

Kelly Hodge B.A.visual art
Kelly is one of those rare photographers whom not only has "the eye" which enables him to produce those unique and memorable compositions, but also an enviable technical ability to overcome any situation. His images whether it be land or cityscape, portraits or pure art have a quality that puts him on everyone's short list.
Graduating from the esteemed Sydney College of the Arts (now part of the University of Sydney) with a Bachelor of Visual Arts specilising in photography in 1988. He joined Australia's leading supplier of professional photographic equipment which enabled his already impressive technical knowledge to expand. He has been shooting digital since the early 1990s, well before most people even knew high quality photography could be done digitally. Supporting this capture knowledge is his understanding of light and shadow. There is a language of light, it is seen rather than heard, and Kelly is fluent.
We also have a few make up artists and hair stylists on our team.
Sleek, professional retouching to images.

Sheridyn Fisher I am a professional model and have worked with Alexa in photography on many an assignment.
Alexa is an utter professional and the quality of her workmanship is beyond reproach. Alexa’s photography has at all times been above what I have expected. I can honestly say that Alexa has one of the most creative minds in my industry and I love working with her.
Alexa is an artist and her photography and ideas always amaze me and I know whenever I work with her, the photos will always be amazing.
Alexa is always punctual and professional and I have found that no task has been too difficult for her. Alexa is a friendly and affable person and is so easy to work with. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Alexa for any assignment or model to which her remarkable talents are suited.
Danni Knight I had the most amazing time shooting with Alexa, being a photographer myself I was so unsure about everything as I have never been the 'model'. She made my man and I feel so comfortable and the pictures she has produced are unbelievable. I am the happiest girl alive right now because of her beautiful, wonderful talent. Thank you once again Alexa, we will cherish these images for life and I will remember this feeling forever :)
Nicole Alexa was a delight to work with. She listened and took our suggestions into account, while putting in her professional opinion to enhance the image quality and outcome. Through working with her, it is evident that she is passionate about her work and has high levels of experience and expertise.
We will definately work with Alexa in the future. As our growing business continuously bring in new styles and items, I am confident Alexa will be a great asset in our expansion. Communication with Alexa was clear and concise, she worked efficently, and respected our vision for the photo shoot.
Highly recommend Alexa for professional and quality photos.
