Alex Allwood | Third Eye Photography | About
Thank you for visiting my photography website !




I'm a semi-professional photographer based in Plymouth, Devon, UK, providing a variety of photographic services with particular emphasis on event and location portrait photography.




My love of photography was kindled during a medical student elective trip to Nepal in 1991. Using slide and monochrome, I captured 2 months of travels around the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. During those magical months in that inspirational mountainous land I gradually developed my camera control skills and more importantly, my photographer's eye - the eye for light and exposure, composition and framing, focus and blur - the Third Eye.


In addition to personal interests in travel portraiture, landscape and wildlife photography, I have gained extensive experience of event photography, supporting and capturing a number of local projects and events. Through connections with local community theatre groups, musicians and swimming clubs I've developed and honed my low light action, event and sports photography skills, building up an extensive portfolio that you are welcome to browse through here. Formal studio and portrait photography training has enabled me to successfully expand my photographic practice to both studio, location and lifestyle portraiture.

I am able to offer bespoke lifestyle or studio portrait packages in addition to event photography, including wedding and engagement services. I have Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check clearance and I'm fully insured, including indemnity and public liability, so you can rest assured when using my services.
