"I am the owner of Silo Films, a commercial production company, and have had the pleasure of working with Brent for the last 6-7 yrs. Brent is a talented photographer and exceptionally creative. Brent has a knack for incredible framing and has an intuitive sense for creating a hierarchy in the shot that directs the viewer’s gaze. My company specializes in the youth market and has used Brent extensively working with miniatures and lots of toy products.  He is quite resourceful and inventive working with these elements.  It is always tricky building and shooting on a miniature scale, and Brent has extensive experience doing this. Brent also has an incredible work ethic.  Many times we have pulled some long days and Brent remains enthusiastic and always willing to jump in and find creative solutions.  He is also a good planner.  He comes to the set with a plan “A” and back up options if we need to explore.  His anticipation has helped many of our shoots go smoothly. Overall I find Brent to be a great guy and a joy to be around.  He is always positive, funny and loves what he does.  I have been producing commercials for over 16 years and like to surround myself with good people.  Brent is Good People!"  - Luis Ruiz. Creative Director & Founder Silo Films 

 

"I feel that your excellent photographs [Portuguese Bend National Horse Show] speak for themselves. It is just our style, candid vignettes that speak volumes rather than broad cluttered landscapes that are too much and say too little. I was so impressed by the outstanding images that you have captured in the fleeting moments of repose, reward and reflection. Sensational!"   -Deborah B. Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. 

 

"Thanks for the beautiful picture that arrived today. I can see the relationship between plant and wave forms. Wishing you happiness and success."   -Shaun Tomson. 1977 World Champion, International Professional Surfers.

 

"Your work is amazing, and your story inspirational.  I’m so happy to have someone with such positive energy and love for the ocean join us at our events."  -Karen Tominaga. South Bay Boardriders Club 

 

"Having spent many opportunities working with Brent, I am constantly amazed at his ability to capture the true essence of the moment. His photojournalism skills are paramount in showing the true feelings of the soul. He is able to take any moment whether it be a horse show, marine life, my nine month old daughter, or just a neighbors party and go above and beyond to turn out some of the best photos I have ever seen. I cannot recommend Brent Alex enough."   -Katherine R. Redondo Beach, CA.

 

"My wife and I asked Brent to take some photos of the two of us, and it ended up being exactly what we hoped for.  We are both camera-shy, but Brent made us feel completely at ease and ended up capturing some great moments.  He gently guided us in just the right ways so that our personalities came through in the photos, and feel very genuine.  The settings that he took the photos in were perfect as well. We’ve been together for several years, and these photos he took are by far the best we have of ourselves.  Brent is a master of his craft, and it shows in all his work.  In addition to the photos of ourselves, we also have some amazing ocean photos that Brent has taken.  They hang in our house, and we receive many compliments on them."   -Dr. Michael Gordon. Denver, CO.

 

"Brent is wonderful to work with. Year after year he is able to highlight the unique personality of each family member and record these candid moments for us to have as a valuable keepsake. Our most treasured family photos were captured by Brent. My children are at ease with Brent as the photographer and enjoy his creativity. We have really enjoyed the 35mm photos that he captured for us on our last photo adventure."   Liz S. Morgan Hill, CA. 

 

"He has taken pictures of my family playing at the beach and I loved how he captured that spontaneous and beautiful moment.  He also took pictures of my son when he was a baby.  And I love looking back on them and remembering how little he was.  He is talented on site and in the studio."   -Jana A. Dallas, TX.

 

"My husband and I contacted Brent Alex for our Save-the-Date cards and we had the greatest experience. Brent Alex is a true artist and he was so easy to work with. He researched the sunset time on the day of our shoot to capture the most beautiful photographs on the beach. He positioned us in the best possible way to capture the right amount of light and shadows. He truly pays attention to detail, even fixing my hair at times (thank you!). Brent was so dedicated during our shoot that he did not care to become wet by the crashing waves. We felt so comfortable and genuinely enjoyed our experience. My only complaint is that every photograph turned out so beautiful that it was hard to choose only one for our Save-the-Date."   -Yalitza P. Hermosa Beach, CA.
