Alex Batista was born in Sao Paulo in 1985.
Specialising in portrait photography, his work is marked by lightness and a delicate look that can be seen in his editorial essays and advertising photography.

In the early years of his career, he worked with marquee Brazilian clients such as O Boticário, Natura and C&A and contributed to magazines including GQ Brasil, Playboy Brasil, Trip and TPM.
In 2012, he shot his first two assignments for Nike with the global soccer superstar Neymar Jr - his first international work with global media.
