My name is Alex DiVincenzo. I’m a photographer and videographer from the south coast of Massachusetts, where I’ve lived all my life. I’ve had a passion for music and an affinity for taking photos and videos since I was young, so it only made sense to combine the two.
When I needed a name for my outlet, I settled on “Alex Is Legend.” I adopted the pretentious monicker upon reading and falling in love with Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend. I had the domain name for several years, and I decided to use it to showcase my concert photography and videography in January of 2009.
Since that time, I’ve had the pleasure of shooting such artists as Blink 182, Tom Petty, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Kelly Clarkson, Joan Jett, Marilyn Manson, Dashboard Confessional, Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, Slayer, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Rob Zombie, The Offspring, Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, My Morning Jacket, Ice-T, Brand New and more.
In addition to AbsolutePunk, where I’m a staff member, my work has appeared in DVDs, CDs, magazines, newspapers and websites around the world.
I shoot photos with a Canon 7D (previously a 40D) and a Canon EF-S 17-55mm lens. HD videos are shot on the 7D, and I use a Zoom H1 to record audio. Older videos were shot on a Panasonic PV-GS320.
