Who is behind The Wells Point?

The folks behind The Wells Point are two photographers:

David H. Wells is a freelance documentary photographer and photo-educator, based in Providence, Rhode Island. He specializes in intercultural communications and the use of light and shadow to enhance visual narratives. He has received two Fulbright fellowships, a grant from Nikon/N.P.P.A. and a fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. His work has been in over fifty exhibitions and he has taught workshops at the International Center for Photography in NYC and at the Maine Photographic Workshops. In 2011 he was featured in Photo District News as one of “The Best Workshop Instructors.” As an Olympus Visionary, Wells has been contracted by the camera company to produce images and provide feedback on new product lines.

Derek Wahila is a freelance photographer and visual, interface, and interaction designer in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He splits his time between photographic and web development projects. His photographic projects most often involve construction documentation with a human-centered focus — that is, capturing the project’s progress while featuring the workers of the site. His web projects include personal and corporate clients in the medical, technical, and fashion industries. The Wells Point is the perfect combination of the two disciplines. Visit
