Artist profiles - Alex Hyde

Alex Hyde is a renowned professional landscape and wildlife photographer based in the Peak District National Park.  Since childhood, Alex has used photography as a means of connecting with the natural world, never tiring of exploring its beauty and form. Over the years, he has come to understand the diverse and intricate landscape of the National Park, allowing him to capture compositions that are both breathtaking and elegant. Working through the changing seasons, he enjoys the contrasts that this special landscape provides, from bleak frozen moorlands in the depths of winter, to the steep-sided limestone dales in summer, bursting with life and colour.

Alex's work has appeared in top newspapers, books and magazines around the world, including publications such as The Times, National Geographic and BBC Wildlife magazine. He maintains an extensive online library of natural history and landscape images and is represented by several leading agencies including Nature Picture Library.

Teaching is an important and enjoyable part of Alex's business. For the past six years, he has lectured in Digital Imaging and Natural History Photography on the prestigious MSc in Biological Photography and Imaging run at the University of Nottingham. He also runs photographic tours and one-day courses, details of which can be found on his website.
