About The Artist
Vincent has been a photographer for over 30 years. From that moment, when he picked up his Mother's Kodak Brownie camera at age 16, he wanted to become a photographer. The snapshots that he took of the Waterloo River in New Jersey would shape his destiny and future.
He joined the Air Force in 1968 and traveled to Japan. After this trip to the Orient, he became passionate about traveling and landscape photography.
After graduating from college in 1972, Vincent discovered he also had a passion for photographing people. He found it difficult to find a job as a photographer, so he came up with a creative way to travel and photograph people. Vincent traveled across the United States to Art shows and County Fairs with his Old Time Photo Studio. He did portraits of people using authentic historical costumes and props.
Growing tired of traveling on the road, Vincent looked for ways to become a more serious photographer. Then in 1976, Vincent found a job in San Francisco as an assistant for a San Francisco photographer who specialized in fashion photography.
The commute from Sacramento to San Francisco daily became tiresome for him, but he now knew he wanted to pursue fashion and advertising photography. Taking a giant leap forward, he opened a photography studio in Sacramento.
For five years, Vincent honed his skills in Fashion and Advertising photography, serving clients nationwide. In 1984 Vincent bought one of the first Apple Mac Computers. And when Photoshop came out in 1987, he knew that the days of the traditional darkrooms would be ending soon.
Today you can find Vincent sitting in front of his computer creating surreal composite images from thousands of different photographs that he has taken over the years. He loves creating conceptual photos with hidden meanings.
