Why subscribe?

Process is my newsletter about photography and how to find your own voice.

Process is a playground where I will share my work and process — in depth. From contact sheets, to portfolio building. From ways to stay organized, to behind-the-scenes experiences with clients and on set. From mistakes made, to lessons learned.

We will also get nerdy as I share notes on different film stocks, including expired film (my favorite), and how to work with each. I’ll also occasionally dive back into my archives as well as share progress on upcoming projects*.

This newsletter is an intentional place where we can have a purposeful conversation far away from the craziness that is social media. A place where, I hope, we all get better at noticing and capturing moments together, in our own individual ways.

Stay up-to-date

Once every two weeks I will send a new email, sometimes accompanied by video or audio.

Sign up now and you won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

In the meantime, tell your friends!

Who Am I?

I'm a photographer and curator based New York City and Amsterdam.

I work with a wide range of editorial and commercial clients including National Geographic Traveller, LinkedIn, Hanes, Wired, New York Magazine, and many others.

I am also the founding curator of the ongoing Projected exhibit at the International Center of Photography, where I have featured work by over 300 photographers from nearly 50 countries.

I co-founded The Observers where I interview visionary photographers about their favorite photo books.

You can find me at @wesley and wesley.co.
