Alex Thursby has cameras in the blood. From the moment he could walk, he was playing around with cameras. Learning from his father who had his own specialist TV company, Alex was producing perfectly framed photos before he could even talk.
Feeding the fire of this early passion was the deep link between his father’s work and some of the leading motorsports events and productions. Seeing this work through the lens of a specialist TV company, allowed Alex to see the possibilities and creativity of this format.
Naturally Alex spent his time at school studying photography and quickly became keen to extend his experience beyond the classroom. Taking his art into nightclubs and music events, he began to get a taste for the professional standards of production, lighting and creativity needed for success.
Realising that the confines of the classroom and the written word were not for him, Alex put his foot down and launched his own business at 17 and has never looked back. So far this journey has been amazing for him, meeting with incredible mentors along the way who have helped him through both amazing and challenging opportunities.
