Seattle, Washington

For inquiries and casual banter:

Wells grew up in the Great Lakes and studied Architecture and Product Design at the University of Michigan.

He helped Topo Designs grow from three to thirty employees before making the jump to photography full-time.

In 2017 he co-founded a production company called Yeehaw Donkey in collaboration with friend and videographer Greg Balkin. Their year long venture took them to Japan, Patagonia, Nicaragua, Indonesia, British Columbia, Hawaii, Utah, California, Texas, Arizona and Washington shooting commercial campaigns for the likes of CLIF Bar, Chaco, and PrAna to name a few. 

As a photographer Wells looks to find balanced color and composition within candid moments. He seeks symmetry but enjoys pushing beyond it.

Wells is actively seeking representation.


His recent clients include:


Wells was recently featured in Gestalten, Outside Online, Gear Patrol, Passion Passport and received the cover of Climbing Magazine's December 2017 Issue.
