My name is Wade.

I'm a freelance photographer based out of Denver, Colorado.  My main focus is photojournalism and documentary photography, but I'll get behind the camera in any way that allows me to connect with other people and tell their stories. From street photography and candid portraiture to studio work with elaborate lighting, I'll stare at it all and learn whatever I can from it. I don't want to ever stop learning photography.

Digital photography has done amazing things for the world. Digital photography IS the world. Yet I still love to shoot film. I love the nostalgia of film, and film also forces me to get things right in-camera.  Heavy editing is not my style.  We live in a world where the camera can show us anything we want, and can do so infinitely. And yet, I believe the camera is still the only tool we have that can capture truth and make time stand still.
