Former student Hal Wells works wonders

Hal Wells has been at the Los Angeles Times since 1997.  While at San Antonio College, he served as an editor, photographer and photo editor and he advised student photographers.

At the University of Missouri, he also worked with students.
Currently, he is a photojournalism instructor at the UCLA Daily Bruin. He has served as director of photography at Press-Telegram and part-time instructor at California State University-Long Beach. 
 
He lists his education as University of Missouri-Columbia and San Antonio College. 
 
Occasionally, I Google former students to see what they've been doing, and this was the result of one of those trolling sessions. Wells shot this image for a feature in the Times: Oddities, musings and news from the health world. It is typical of his artistic eye.
