"As a professional performer
as well as a personal coach of 30 years, I have encountered many
photographers. Alex Kaplan has a wonderful personal style that promotes
relaxation for an artist in front of the camera. He captures that,
"state of being", so important for any "living"
display of a personality. He does this creating an atmosphere during
studio and location shooting, that produces composite results of great
variety. This offers a great number of wonderfully selectable images to
choose from. Alex Kaplan's lighting and technical skills are among the top
professionals in the business."
