He was 'Highly Commended' in the BBC/NHM Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition 2007, winner of the 'Oceans' category in the Nature's Best Photography' competition 2008, a category winner in the GDT 'European Nature photographer of the year competition in 2009 and National Wildlife Federation competition 2010 and won trips to the Galapagos Islands  and Namibia  via photography competitions through Audley Travel and Wildlife Worldwide.
Alec has had his work published in a wide variety of magazines and newspapers including BBC Wildlife, Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Guardian, Shark Focus Magazine and National Wildlife. He was also 'Commended' in the Sony World Photography Awards 2014 and shortlisted in the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 and BBC/NHM Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition 2018.
