My Work

I'm Alex McIntyre, the staff photojournalist at The Greeley Tribune in Greeley, Colo. I have previously interned as a photographer at Indiana University Athletics, as a photojournalist at the Herald-Times in Bloomington, Ind., the Arizona Daily Star and at Arizona Athletics, as well as spent two and a half years on the photo desk of my college paper, The Daily Wildcat. In May of 2017, I graduated from the UA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism with a thematic minor in the biological sciences.

Biography

I started climbing at age nine after a field trip to Rocks and Ropes, a local climbing gym, and still dedicate myself to the absurd pursuit of trying to scale small rocks by the hardest possible path. Climbing has taken me as far abroad as the Cederberg mountains of South Africa and allowed me to spend a huge amount of time in incredibly beautiful places even close to home. These landscapes and climbing's unique movement are what originally inspired me to pick up a camera and document the world around me, and have driven me to and past my limits in a myriad of ways time and time again.
