Alexander JE Bradley was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1982. He transferred to the liberal arts-based Swinburne Senior Secondary College for his final two years of schooling - a move that would influence the rest of his life. Alexander quickly picked up media as his primary interest, learning the basics of film and photography while still at school. He obtained his Victorian Certificate of Education in 1999, and quickly immersed himself in the world of arts and the media.
While working his first jobs in 5-star hotels in Mount Buller, Victoria, Alexander wrote and directed several plays, one of which, a punk rock musical, was premiered at the Melbourne Fringe Festival. In 2003, he attended photographic imaging college, and in the same year he shot his first short film End of the Line, which won the coveted Best Naritave and Overall First prize at the ACMI Die Gesis Festival. Following a year's stint living in Tokyo, Alexander returned to Australia and from 2006-9 he worked as a producer on Barnaby Flowers as well as having his footage appear in the multi award winning feature film Kenny, directed by Claton Jackobson. His stills photography skills also flourished, and 2009 saw him put on his first exhibition in Melbourne, a series of photographs from the abandoned La Petite Ceinture railway in Paris.
Paris proved to be an enduring love for Alexander, and in 2010 he moved there permanently, taking on work as a cameraman and producer for PokerNews where he made over a thousand videos across six continents and also creating "The Circuit" photographic project - a series of portraits delving into every facet of the international poker community. Alexander had become involved with live music while in Australia, directing and filming the Falls Festival for a live audience of 16,000. Alexander has had his photography appear on French and European magazine covers, worked in everything from press to chocolate, fine art nudes to the dark abandoned tunnels than lie under Paris and everywhere in between, sometimes all together in one shot. By now an accomplished filmmaker and photographer, Alexander continues to push the boundaries in his chosen media, and is in the process of mounting his first ever major solo photographic show for his project The Great Spectacle of the Milking where he throws milk at people.
