Alex Cassels Art Prints and Posters
First signs of an artistic calling showed themselves on family holidays to the north Norfolk coast in the early 1970s this really took off photographically following another family holiday to the Costa Brava when I sold my first picture of the little fishing port of Port de la Selva to Catalan Villas; this family run travel company used the image for their brochure cover for the next three years.
In the mid 1980s I went on to study Photography, Film & Television at Plymouth College of Art and Design which introduced me to the wonderful world of animation. This new direction had initially been inspired through work experience at the Walt Disney Studios in Sydney while on a round the world trip during which time I had spent 9 months in Australia and New Zealand.
My love for the natural world and landscape photography was shaped by the stunning and dramatic scenery in Australia, United States, Canada and particularly in New Zealand.
Commissioned work for hotels and travel brochures in Cyprus, Turkey and Egypt has enabled me to produce more personal work in the United States in recent years.
