My name is Alex Fazekas-Boone and I am the creator of The Professional Amateur. I live in a small city just south of Seattle, Washington called Tacoma with my lovely yoga teaching lady Laura Anderson. Together we have built our life to prioritize doing the things that make us happy, like traveling, being outdoors and pursuing our many passion projects. Since we both love photographing and writing, we decided to make The Professional Amateur, a place to share our ever expanding list of experiences, travel tips, gear reviews, photography talk and life inspiration. Some of what we do is for hire (professional) and some of what we do is just for fun (amateur). If you would like to contact us about producing photography, video, writing or other original marketing content for you or your company, please use the form below. Thanks!
