Vincent Versace:

The recipient of the Palm Beach Photographic Centre’s FOTOmentor Award during FOTOfusion 2019, Vincent Versace is an internationally recognized pioneer in the art and science of digital photography. One of the founding Nikon Ambassadors who has been hailed as “one of the top photography artists and visual storytellers of this era,” Versace is a recipient of the Computerworld Smithsonian Award in Media Arts & Entertainment and the Shellenberg fine art award. His work is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History, and he has been published in numerous national newspapers and magazines. Based in Los Angeles, he divides his time between commercial and fine art photography assignments, teaching, and consulting for such suppliers as Nikon, Epson, Nik, OnOne, X-Rite, Adobe, Sunbounce and others. His best-selling books include From Oz to Kansas: Almost Every Black & White Technique Known to Mankind and Welcome to Oz 2.0: A Cinematic Approach to Digital Still Photography with Photoshop, which Shutterbug Magazine called “the best how-to book of the year.” His exhibition at the Photo Centre will feature images illustrating the many facets of Vincent’s work, from his beautiful portraits of flowers and landscapes to infrared images and cultural and celebrity portraits.
