Fashion Photographer and Portrait artist Aleksandr Karjaka listens with his eyes to capture the authentic essence of each subject. By exploring everyday, unscripted moments, he crafts iconic imagery in which the ordinary is elevated to the universal.

Aleks’s photos have been featured in numerous commercial campaigns, magazines and encompass industries from fashion to performance art to architecture. Also a professional clarinetist, he has a unique pulse on the arts world and his imagery is in particularly high demand among preeminent artists, ensembles, and performance schools. Aleks works in both color and black and white formats, and is equally skilled in film and digital photography. He shoots primarily with the Hasselblad H6D50c.

When he’s not behind the camera you may also find him on stage behind a clarinet at places such as Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Opera House.
