I'm Wesley Lapointe. I'm an editorial and commercial photographer who has a long love affair with capturing impactful stories. 

While stumbling through my early teens, I bought my first camera and began to take it everywhere I went. Over ten years later, not much has changed.


Robert Capa said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” 


His quote explains my passion for this craft. Photography gives me a reason to get close to each of my subjects. In an increasingly isolated world, I practice photography to engage with the world and people around me.


My focus is on going beyond technicalities to capture the emotional impacts of the scenes beyond my lens. I shoot photojournalism, portraiture, weddings, and food.


I'd love to hear from you. To reach out, please visit the Contact page next door.
