Alexander Valchev is among the best adventure photographers I have ever had the pleasure the work with. He is very well tempered, extremely dedicated, and hustles hard at every shoot. Alex knows what he wants from a photo, goes through great lengths to achieve it, works independently (which is a great relief when organizing big events), and squeezes out the most from every shot. Most of the time he puts equal or more effort than the athletes themselves. I measure all professionals in the field according to him. Further on, Alex is a great guy whom I consider a dear friend. Working with him is very pleasant and the results are always outstanding. Lion Heart wouldn’t be where it is if it wasn’t for his hard work, brilliant ethics, and pure love for sport and nature.
