Alex Nursall is a Toronto-based photographer / illustrator / writer / general roustabout.

She began her image-heavy career at the tender age of 6, when her parents bought her first camera. This camera helped to foster her love of photography, and in particular her love of photojournalism (though at the time it was less "journalism" and more "pictures of her friends with a thumb in the corner"). At some point, she eventually outgrew her humble beginnings and moved on to sports photography, starting with her sneaking into the press area at a national track and field meet (teaching her that people will believe anything you say as long as you've got a big camera around your neck).

Alex is also an accomplished illustrator ("accomplished" here meaning "pretty good with watercolours and easy on the eyes as well, yuk yuk yuk"), with a focus on ink and watercolours. She was previously the Illustrations Editor at The Varsity and freelances for various magazines in Toronto.

In case you haven't guessed, she's also a humour writer. Try the veal! I'm here all week. Read Less
