When we first hatched the idea of creating a new and independent whisky merchants, we knew we wanted to tell our story in an open and honest way.
As a team who loves working with talented and inspiring people, we asked if Wes, from Wes Kingston Photography, would come on a ride with us to help document our story.
Wes Kingston is a photographer who specialises in people and their environments. Born in Cape Town in 1976, he moved to Belfast when he was 10 years old and at the age of 17, he left to travel the world.
Wes started his photographic career in street and snowboard photography, drawing from his travels and years of experience working with some of the world’s most renowned brands, including many whisky brands, to develop his own unique style and blend of photography.
Despite shooting in ever changing and challenging environments, Wes always draws the characters out of each subject to create images that hit you at a much more personal level. With a background in documentary making, Wes has instilled a sense of storytelling throughout our site. This storytelling is the basis of his approach and we look forward to posting and sharing more as we reveal the work that has gone into creating Goldfinch and also our first Royal bottling.
Thank you Wes
