ABOUT

WELCOME, MY FRIEND! AND THANK YOU FOR VISITING. MY NAME IS ALEK VILLA, AND I'M A PHOTOGRAPHER AND CINEMATOGRAPHER BASED IN THE NEW JERSEY AREA, BUT WILLING TO FLY TO THE MOON IF YOU NEED ME THERE... LITERALLY!

MY MISSION

VISION

MY PURPOSE AND GOAL AS AN ARTIST IS TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE WITH THE CREATING PROCESS. I WOULD BE HONORED TO BE PART OF YOUR GROWTH AND MAKE YOUR IDEAS COME ALIVE.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT QUALITY IMAGERY IS A MUST IN ORDER TO KEEP YOUR IDEAL CLIENTS ENGAGED.

I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND A GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER THAT FITS YOUR NEEDS AND SOMEONE WHO REPRESENTS YOUR STYLE. THAT'S WHERE I COME ON BOARD AND MAKE YOUR VISION TAKE SHAPE AND FORM. 

WHETHER YOU NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER OR CINEMATOGRAPHER TO COVER YOUR EVENT, MAYBE A PORTRAIT FOR YOUR LINKEDIN, PICTURES OF YOUR PRODUCT, YOUR SPACE, YOUR BAND, A FASHION EDITORIAL, OR YOU JUST SIMPLY WANT QUALITY PICTURES OF YOUR CUTE DOGGIE, I GOT YOU COVERED.

WHY ALEK?

YES, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF GREAT PHOTOGRAPHERS OUT THERE, BUT WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE ME?

WELL, I DO NOT ONLY POSSESS THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS OF PHOTOGRAPHY BUT WITH ART ITSELF AND BEAUTY AESTHETICS. I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT EVERYTHING I CREATE, AND I'M EXTREMELY PROUD OF IT.

WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR CONTENT, WOULD YOU RATHER CHOOSE SOMEONE WHO WORKS JUST FOR THE MONEY, OR SOMEONE WHO IS DEDICATED AND WILL DO IT WITH PASSION? YOU JUST DON'T WANT A GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER, YOU WANT SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST, AND SOMEONE WHO CAN UNDERSTAND AND FULFILL YOUR EXPECTATIONS.

ABOUT ALEK

I'VE BEEN IN LOVE WITH ART AS FAR AS I CAN REMEMBER. WHETHER IT IS MUSIC, FINE ARTS, OR CINEMATOGRAPHY, NOTHING HAS EVER COMPARED TO MY PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY. I STARTED MY CAREER IN THE EARLY 2000S. OF COURSE, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, TAKING PICTURES OF FLOWERS AND CUTE DOGGOS. BUT EVENTUALLY, I BECAME EXPERIMENTING WITH DIFFERENT STYLES OF PHOTOGRAPHY, INCLUDING FASHION EDITORIAL, WHICH HELPED ME GAIN EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH ALL ASPECTS OF A PHOTOSHOOT, INCLUDING POSING, HAIR & MAKEUP, STYLING, AND BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY CLIENTS AND MODELS. 

 

I PRIDE MYSELF ON MY CONSTANT DESIRE TO ACCOMMODATE THE DISTINCT NEEDS OF EACH CLIENT I WORK WITH. I ALSO STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A MEANING BEHIND EVERY SHOT I TAKE. TAKING THE TIME TO COMPOSE THE SHOT FOR ME IS CRUCIAL. FOR ME, IT’S ALL ABOUT QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY.

 

FOR ME, IT FEELS AMAZING TO BE ABLE TO CAPTURE DIFFERENT EMOTIONS IN EVERY SHOT, AND PHOTOGRAPHY GIVES ME THE FREEDOM TO TELL THE STORY IN AN ARTISTIC WAY. YOU'LL FIND ME LYING DOWN ON THE FLOOR OR BALANCING ON A BRANCH TO GET THE SHOT I WANT.

 

I CONTINUE WORKING TO BECOME A BETTER ARTIST IN EVERY WAY I CAN IMAGINE, FOREVER EXPANDING MY CAREER FAR BEYOND.

LET'S TALK

NOT SURE WHERE TO BEGIN? ALREADY HAVE AN INSPIRATION BOARD ON PINTEREST? I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR IDEAS, AND ABOUT THE CONTENT YOU WANT TO CREATE. THE MORE INFO YOU CAN PROVIDE ME UPFRONT, THE BETTER. FROM THERE, WE WILL HOP ON A CALL OR MEET UP FOR COFFEE TO DISCUSS WHICH TYPE OF SESSION WILL WORK BEST FOR YOU. I WILL BE THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY THROUGHOUT THE CREATING PROCESS.
