About Me

Alex Palumbo is a filmmaker, photographer, and waterman based in Cardiff, California. Growing up on the south shore of Long Island, Alex spent his formative years learning how to source his food from the sea - and growing an appreciation for the natural world. 

Alex is a natural born storyteller. Having a keen eye for detail and an uncanny ability to capture the most genuine moments as they unfold - he has been trusted to tell the stories of people, places, and moments both large and small over the years.

Photography and filmmaking happened organically, out of a desire to document the wild places and unique souls he came across in his travels. Storytelling through a lens became his way of connecting with people, and is what gave his life its greatest purpose.

His films and photos have been used by Spotify, Men's Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Casa Dragones Tequila, and Todd Snyder - along with many smaller companies and artists.

Recently, Alex has built out a team to tackle larger productions - while still being nimble enough to blend into communities and groups to tell the most authentic stories possible.

Alex is based in Cardiff, CA and available for assignments worldwide.
