A Frames from afar.
The name Wez Lew might sound a little familiar to you if you’re an LWA follower. Last month we featured a facetime photoshoot the South African snapper pulled off whilst in iso with Dutch babe Chantal van Dalen, and since then we’ve been frothing on his pics so much, we thought we oughta take a deep dive and feature him in Frames.
Having picked up (well, technically stolen a 550D Canon from his dad) about 10 years ago, the 26-year-old has built a solid portfolio that includes surf photography, landscape and fashion, shooting both digital and 35mm. He’s not one of those “jack of all, master of none” type guys either, with Wez clearly having dedicated many hours to each discipline, resulting in some stunning shots.
There was one close call whilst shooting overseas, however. “I guess my craziest experience would be me and my best friend nearly dying in Hawaii from a missile that never came,” he says recounting the false missile alert that went off all around the US island back in 2018. Jeepers…
Check out some of Wez’s tastiest pics below and head here to see more of his work on Instagram:
