photographer's photo

Alexa Boyle is an editorial and commercial travel and lifestyle photographer based in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A., a member of American Society of Media  Photographers - ASMP. Her adamant venture into motion picture production began on cellulose and acetate film. By the time everything digital came around, she hosted a weekly TV show, filmed and photographed the greater part of Europe and Asia, and produced three independent films.

Photographer and biologist by formal education, Alexa graduated summa cum laude and received a Ph.D. degree in biology. Her scientific research and multiple expeditions in Russia, China, and the United States (North Pacific Rim) added a new species to Alaska's list of rare plants, proposed system of protected areas in Russian regions bordering China, along with two monographs, co-authored books, and multiple papers. In addition, majoring in Film Production, she graduated the class of Prof. Aleksander Terletsky, and later studied Visual Storytelling and Portrait Photography under direction of Frans Lanting, George Lepp, and Joe McNally.

With camera in hand and some knowledge of languages, Alexa is absorbed by intellectual wanderlust of climes and their communities. In every venue, she seeks a distinct ambiance that creates an unmistakable sense of a particular place, its rhythms, and lifestyles. In her spare time, she enjoys taking her family to the misty forest trails in the Columbia River Gorge, skiing the slopes of Mt. Hood, and serving her weekend culinary delights.

Some of her recent editorial clients include GEO, Travel Oregon, American Forests, MediAmerica, Allen&Unwin, Science Press, Tiger Oak Publications, Capstone Press, VIA Magazine.
