About

Photography is important part of my life, both as a day job and as a hobby. During my entire photographic career I explored nature photography in all its varieties: wildlife and landscape, macrophotography and photomicrography. At present, I work in such specialized areas as photography of UV-induced visible fluorescence, reflected ultraviolet and multispectral photography.

Exhibitions: Most recent photo exhibition AgNO3 – Histories of Science and Photography (Landskrona Museum, Sweden, June 2016 – January 2017) displays several of my photographs on UV-induced visible fluorescence, reflected ultraviolet and whole-drawer imaging.

Competitions: 2014 Olympus BioScapes Competition (7th prize and honourable mention); 2015 Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition (shortlisted), 2013 Sony World Photography Award, Open Competition, Nature and Wildlife (commended).

Publications: Featured in Plant: Exploring the Botanical World published by Phaidon Press. Glödande Blommor published in Swedish nature photography magazine Camera Natura. This gallery also hosts my article on Ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence photography.

Picture use: My photographs are available for scientific or educational purpose (non for profit), and were used by researchers and journalists to popularize science in the Squirrells of the World (2012, The John Hopkins University Press); Wildlife Australia (2013, Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland); The Reason for Flowers (2015, Scribner); The Australian Beekeeping Manual (2015, Exisle Publishing); World of the Birds, and other publications and web sites. If you want to use my pictures, please contact me directly or by adding a comment to the photo you are interested in and I will be delighted to help you.

Prints: My gallery is not set up for print ordering, but it does not mean that that I do not sell prints. If you are interested to purchase a print from me – please contact me directly. I can print custom sizes on several types of archival quality paper using one of the best printing labs in Stockholm. All prints are individually signed.

Hi Alex,
Your work is so beautiful. I had heard about you through Cobh photographer friends who I have done some courses with. I spotted you on Facebook and saw the link to your website. You are a breath of fresh air. I love your work, i'll be keeping an eye on your website.

Hi Oleksandr,

Breath taking photos, I liked the colors particularly in Infrared world, false colors file!
What surprising is that we see here a hobby of a nematologist , when our very time consuming job is considered..it seems impossible..

Great work! great look of art!
Derya.

Thanks for sharing your vision of light Alex! You are great inspiration for me and I hope for others as well. I love to see photography in a new way other than "normal". I look at some of your images as Art. Please keep on sharing your way of seeing the world!

Hi there,
could you give me some advice on how you white balance your reflected UV shots? Do you still use Teflon and if yes how precisely do you cary out the white balance? Do you take a shot in reflected UV with the Teflon in place and then copy and paste the white balance over in lightroom or whatever you use?
Regards
Sascha
