An award-winning studio & location photographer, and voted ''Best Photographer'' 4 times in Philadelphia's Main Line (The Main Line Life "Reader's Choice" Award, 2 consecutive years) and Best Artistic Photographer and Best Family Portrait Photographer for 2014, Alex Lowy's artistic approach translates into all aspects of his versatile capabilities. Much of his work is people-oriented, working with businesses, organizations and families.
His work is often used for commercial purposes, with more and more demand for use on web sites and for marketing efforts. He does provide product photography, of course, with his 18 year association with GRISHKO Dancewear being used for various aspects of their marketing, web presence and their ads in DANCE (& other magazines). His monthly presence in several magazines, has often led to his providing family portraits for their covers, like Merrill Reese, the play-by-play announcer for the Philadelphia Eagles. His food photography is often seen in magazines and his "largest" job with food for Gladwyne Market ended up being a six foot by twenty foot wall mural of six prepared food images, as well as a collage on aluminum behind their cashier. You will be WOWed by these images and the food, if you venture into that food market.
His restoration of photographs (and even art work) is unparalleled and was written about in a feature article in Main Line Today magazine, ''Where to Get Things Fixed in the Main Line" ...Examples of this can be seen in this web site's PORTFOLIOS section.
Alex receives frequent requests from the world of the Arts, live performance and for all kinds of events, anywhere (having handled 3 one year on the West Coast, as well as the Caribbean and even for surgeons in Goteberg, Sweden)...or destination weddings (like ones done in the Bahamas, the Bay area and one near the Tappan Zee Bridge). One job in NYC was for Jason Speegle, Leon Russell's lead guitarist, who was leaving the band and hired Alex to photograph the group for a second time at BB King's in Time Square (for his 1st CD, web site & a poster). Another in NYC for American Express One was with Tom Brokaw at lunch and at the United Nations that evening.

Alex's passion extends into photographing celebrities and the "Who's who" in entertainment and sports (Alex has enjoyed being on court yearly since 1999 as an official photographer for the Philadelphia Freedoms and World Team Tennis). His golf photography on aluminum has been displayed in many places (currently at World Wide Stereo in Ardmore, PA), showcasing his impeccable timing (not just in tennis, but any sport) with images taken at two U S Opens (at Merion and at Oakmont) and the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol. He often donates them for charitable fund-raisers when handling such events with his photography. (** If you have an event coming up and have not lined up a photographer for that event, call the studio, today!**) Five were auctioned off for the "Down the Line and Beyond" fund-raiser and brought in $3000 at the Overbrook Golf Club, the 3rd time Alex had handled their event. A LOT of needy kids got tennis racquets and a free clinic with famed, tennis coach, Nick Bollettieri earlier that day (all documented by Alex for their future marketing needs).

Alex's fashion-oriented style translates into cutting edge model portfolios, portraits, weddings, mitzvahs & event results. Alex travels anywhere for work & assignments.
An active member for 5 years of BNI-Main Line 3, a group of 50 successful business owners who meet weekly at Yang Ming, Alex has also been a member of the Main Line Chamber of Commerce for 10 years, handling at least 3 of their major events & awards dinners annually, the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) since 1997 and the Local Entrepreneurs Network, handling each event for this group of 2000 members.
A Fine Art Photographer, his work is in collections around the world. He is represented by Sande Webster & Gallery DeVlieger (in the heart of Bryn Mawr where his work is always on display).
Alex has exhibitions yearly. His dance photography has shown in the Carnegie Museum's Scaife Gallery and Philadelphia's City Hall.
Alex currently has a 44 year retrospective of Performance Photography in Ardmore at "The Living Room at 35 East" (the earliest image is of Bette Midler in B&W)
