BroFile #9: Alex Baker
For Brofile #9 we lined up local ripper Alex Baker and put him in the spotlight. We shot these photos over two sessions — a little park and a little street, challenged Alex a little and he more than nailed it. A purveyor of colourful shirts and hand-crafted griptape art, we caught up with Alex to give his two cents for our quick fire questions. Here’s what he had to say…
