David Vance is an international icon with success in advertising, editorial and portrait photography, shooting campaigns and photographing celebrities.
Of Italian descent, David Vance has been surrounded by the atmosphere of his heritage since childhood. The painting, the sculpture, the music and the literature of his world exposed him at an early age to the classics in observing life. He sees beauty through the eyes of his ancestors and creates beauty in their same vision.
Although during his forty plus year career he has had commercial success in advertising, editorial and portrait photography, shooting campaigns and photographing celebrities, at his core is the heart and sensibility of an artist. It began with an interest in art and drawing at the early age of 10. He became interested in photography at 14 but continues to enjoy drawing and painting. He also enjoys playing the piano and singing and has performed with the South Beach gay men’s chorus.
He shares a home/studio in Miami, Florida with his husband, Kyle Plyler.
David’s fine art prints have been exhibited in Galleries from Palm Springs to Paris. They are also available at www.davidvanceprints.com.
There are 14 coffee table books of his work. They are VISIONS, THE ULTIMATE BOOK OF NUDES, THE WOODS, DAVID VANCE /PHOTOGRAPHS, ATTRACTIONS, TIMELESS, HEAVENLY BODIES, EROTIC DREAMS, MEN AND GODS, MASCULINE BEAUTY, EMOTION (BRUNO GMUENDER), and JUNGLE FEVER (SELF PUBLISHED), MEN AND WATER AND PRIVATE PERFORMANCES.
