Drawn to the landscape of Australia’s south west, large format landscape photographer Alex Bond has been practising professionally since 1989.
He uses a 4×5 wooden field camera and conventional black and white and colour transparency films. All his films, including the E-6 colour are processed in his traditional wet darkroom.
Alex believes his direct involvement with the materials and the techniques used in film based photography and traditional wet darkroom printing are an essential ingredient in making an expressive print.
He has traveled to many West Australian national parks, creating images for magazines as well for his own product line of postcards, calendars, books and posters. Alex Bond publishes under the imprint of Stormlight Publishing and has been the recipient of both State and National Print Awards for excellence in print.
