Welcome to our blog. We are North by North Photography, a pair of professionally trained photographers based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm Alexa Cude and my partner, Luke Clarridge, makes up the other half of NxN. We met at NSCAD University, where we both majored in photography and have been inseparable ever since.
Because our relationship began when we were studying together, we have a unique working partnership. We can intuit each other's next moves on a shoot and our individual skills compliment one another perfectly. Luke is your guy for technical knowledge, perfect lighting and can put anyone at ease in front of the lens. On the other hand, I love styling shoots, working on seamless post-production and networking within both our local and global communities.
Our goal on every shoot is to produce work which tells our clients' stories as they should be told. Although we work digitally, our aesthetic reflects our love for analog film, the medium we originally trained in. Our work is varied reflecting the diversity of our interests and of our clients. We love doing work including portraiture, social media content, event coverage, interiors, editorial work and but are always happy to do work outside the box as well.
Although we love working internationally, we are so proud to be part of our local community in North End Halifax. Our studio is based out of our loft on Gottingen. We love our vibrant neighbourhood and couldn't imagine a more ideal setting. It wouldn't be right to tell the story of NxN and our studio without mentioning our two loyal mascots, Ace, a one year old newfoundland, and Yeezy, our four year old shar pei.
If you have any questions feel free to comment, or drop us a line. We'd love to get to know your story as well.
