The best part about his shooting style? Alex is humble and down to earth.

Though he could brag about his brilliant career, Alex has maintained that humbleness necessary to make people feel at ease around him.

Alex (or Stemp, as he is called by his fans) has a deep connection with photography.

Some people consider Alex's style as touristy because of the locations he shoots at.

But he is just smart in understanding where interesting people walk around.

An open platform to express himself.

For him, street photography offers freedom of expression and an open platform to express himself through photography.

From Miami to New York and lately divided among the extravagant Venice Beach and the picturesque Hollywood Boulevard.

The people that got lucky enough to cross their path and collaborated with Alex are countless and always with a great smile once they see their portraits.

Colorful, true to the essence of the person he is portraying, the photos taken are masterpieces.

Lately, he has been wandering around Hollywood Boulevard and taking photos of the various movie characters you can meet while walking on the starred sidewalk.

He has a close relationship with the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

His camera makes you feel you are one of those lucky people fortunate enough to have crossed paths with him.

So dangerous!

Last week he met one of the favorite couples of TikTok.

I am talking about the beautiful Jasmine Chiswell and her husband, Maverick McNeilly.

The Hollywood couple, who is known for dressing in a vintage way, announced just a few days ago their pregnancy.

And the baby bump was showing in this backstage video.

Alex chose the right moment and captured a beautiful picture of Jasmine.

The sweet woman, who became famous thanks to her incredible resemblance with Marylin Monroe, was giggling and smiling during the shooting.

But she did not pronounce her famous quote

...so dangerous!

Alex also took a few photos of Jasmine and Maverick together, and fans went wild in the comments because of the cuteness of the whole video.

Here you can see the video uploaded on Stemplewski's Tiktok:
