From Vance:

I have been a cinematographer for 30yrs, a diver for 40yrs and a NAUI Instructor for 25yrs. I am primarily a professional land cinematographer, I shoot Features films commercials and music videos. I also shoot professional film work underwater.

My passion for the sea has been with me my whole life and capturing still images and motion film of the beautiful amazing creatures the live under the sea has a deep emotional connection for me. Apart from my deep technical knowledge I would love to share the passion that fuels my love of the image above and below the sea..

You can see some of my work including underwater images and video at,
