We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexandra Kacha and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexandra, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I have been taking photographs since I was 16 years old, I am now 33. I never believed it could be a full time career, or better yet, a good career. Photography was a artistic expression for me, something I always wanted to do for fun, but as I got older, I realized it is most definitely a job & I wanted it to be mine. The beginning was rough, I was not doing basic boudoir most people saw around, I created my own- I think that helped me keep going.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a alternative & inclusive boudoir photographer, my studio is located in Los Angeles, CA. My work focuses on couples, kink, eroticism & intimacy. My approach to boudoir is not mainstream, it is a little more edgy while still maintaining dreaminess.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would definitely take them to Pokez, Sipz, Starlight, Rudfords or Hob Nob Hill Restaurant. I love all the vegan food in San Diego, the farmers markets, the beaches, hiking. San Diego is truly so beautiful.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to thank my father for always pushing me to pursue photography professionally, all of my earliest clients & supporters, but most of all the queer, art & sex worker community. So many people to shout out! So many artists who have inspired me, Emma Wondra, Lauren Crow, Simone Niamani, ooof theres so many queer photographers that need more representation.
