In the hands of a true artist, a tool can make a masterpiece. Such is the case for a camera in the hands of Larry Wells. Following over 12 years in the occupation of bounty hunter and additional time spent as a bouncer, Wells found himself doing odd jobs here and there before a very dear friend of his handed him a Pentax DSLR camera. That was in February 2013. The gift came with the words, “Here you go. Give this a try.” Wells was soon out walking the local parks and public settings, taking pictures. These were the very basic beginning of Images by Outlaw, through which Wells has created a portfolio that could bring a tear to your eye with its beauty.

To hear him explain it, his first day of shooting with the “real camera” stirred a passion within him, creating a connection in his soul. The process spoke to him, telling him this is what he should have been doing all along. That connection is clear through his work, and the images he captures show that the proof is in the pudding. “I have always been a lover of the outdoors and wildlife, spending much of my time as a child hunting and fishing on our land in Centerville, Texas. I spent lots of time there as a child and growing into a young adult,” Wells explained in an email interview. “I can remember sitting in an open field once, just enjoying the sounds of nature, when a red fox came trotting by and stopped for a few brief moments, about three feet away from me, as if to say, ‘Hello. How are you?’” His experiences render a finished product on film that defies belief. If it weren’t captured in his photography, you’d have a hard time thinking someone was so profoundly lucky to have experienced any of the circumstances he’s been able to get an image of!
