Alex Huggan, a renowned music photographer and director, has been capturing the essence of rock 'n' roll for over two decades. With an impressive portfolio that includes names like Tom Petty, Eddie Vedder, Joe Perry, Johnny Depp, Sting, and Mumford > Sons, Alex has solidified his reputation as one of the most sought-after lensmen in the business.
Starting his journey as a promoter and publicist in London in the late 90s, Alex worked with a who's who of music royalty, including the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson. He then took his talents to Los Angeles in 2013 and shot at iconic venues such as The Roxy, Whisky GoGo, Sunset Marquis, and more, building personal relationships with artists and bands along the way.
With a keen eye for capturing the energy and spirit of live performances, Alex has been a regular at major festivals and gigs, including Life is Beautiful, Monterey Pop 50, South by South West, and Coachella. He even shot one of Tom Petty's final gigs in Hollywood in 2017, creating a set of timeless images.
But Alex's talents go beyond capturing live shows. He's also shot album covers, tour programs, and posters for many artists, including Sting's 2017 tour and the visually stunning album sleeves for Joe Perry's "Sweetzerland Manifesto" produced by Johnny Depp and Kasey Lansdale's "Leave Her Wild," produced by Johnny Cash's son John Carter Cash. His work has been widely recognized and featured in major publications such as Rolling Stone, LA Times, BBC Online, and more.
In early 2020, Alex showcased his directorial skills with the music video for Michael Grant > The Assassin's "Red Light Run," which received hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. Alex is also the official photographer for Sunset Marquis' summer concert series "Live at Sunset," and his fine art prints are available through Morrison Hotel Gallery in the US.
