ALEKSANDRA SHARPE

MEDIA/CONTENT CREATOR @alekssharpeimagery

she/her

I was born in Gdansk, Poland and right from the beginning, my parents believed in “experiences” over “stuff’“. As a kid, I remember exploring the beaches of the Caribbean, sailing down the coast of south America, and climbing the lions in Trafalgar Square. Those are my childhood memories. and that love of exploration and adventure never went away. I’ve travelled to over 30 countries and that’s just the beginning. Photography isn’t my job, it’s my passion project. it’s really just my way of colliding things I desire… a creative outlet, a source of connection, a way to explore. So when I get you in front of my lens, it’ll be relaxed. forget about a rigid schedule. we will wander, we will take breaks, we will get to know each other and bust a gut laughing along the way. And trust me when I say this – I legit cannot wait.
