Alexis was born in the UK and moved to Vancouver, BC in 2011. A successful self-employed software developer, he has the freedom to pursue his artistic passions. With a unique eye for composition, combined with technical abilities that make for consistently great shots, a common trait is his ability to bring inspirational perspectives to subjects old and new.
Alexis specialises in fine art prints of landscapes, cityscapes and seascapes in and around the Pacific Northwest, and has had work exhibited internationally. As well as capturing some of the most iconic Vancouver city viewpoints in stunning detail, he also regularly explores the BC and Washington coastline for new photographic opportunities, and continues to develop a portfolio of incredible night sky photographs featuring the Milky Way and the Aurora Borealis.
In this photos, Alexis Birkill shows the Canadian city carpeted in thick fog, with the city’s skyscrapers poking out above the clouds. The stunning photographs were taken when fog lingered on the city for a week.
