San Diego, USA
Vance is a 28 y/o outdoor adventure and commercial photographer from Encinitas, California. He grew up in a small surfing town in San Diego. Throughout the years, the ocean and surfing have been his life, and over the last 7 years, rock climbing and backpacking. His first adventures were heading down to Baja in a VW van to chase swells and camp and ever since then he’s craved the the adventure of the unknown. He picked up a camera when he was 15 and spent the next few years shooting film, and eventually, digital for fun and to capture scenes from surf trips. After landing a few gigs shooting concerts and adventure brands he knew this is what he was meant to do. He dropped out of college right before nursing school and has been pursuing photography full time ever since. He finds his greatest moments in life are because of where his camera takes him. It wipes the stresses of everyday and pushes him to go to places he may not otherwise.
