Thank you!

Wes’s passion for cinematography is fueled by a love for telling compelling stories through film media, combining his unique style of artistic expression and capturing visual metaphors. 

His exposure to the craft began at the Savannah Arts Academy high school in coastal Georgia where he majored in film communications. His skill and personal style was further developed while attending college at Appalachian State University.

From there, he has chased light and found inspiration all over the world from the Rocky Mountains to Alaska and even as far away as Nepal, where his first feature documentary film, Helambu, is set.

Wes’s work exemplifies his desire to engage with a global community of enterprising characters who share his passion for telling stories of human perseverance and natural beauty with the world.
