Stephen Vanasco is a N.Y. born/L.A. raised street photographer whose immersion in the world of skate in the 90’s uncovered a desire to share his experiences and perspective through the lens of his camera. With a deep interest in skateboarding that paralleled his drive to make photographs that mirror his way of seeing, Van’s camera soon became an everyday accessory and an extension of his vision. In 2011 he chose to follow his creative passion and pursue the art of photography, finding myriad avenues to evolve his images into platforms for successful collaborations and business ventures. Following his evolution from skateboarding to photography, Van Styles introduced his popular apparel line, V/SUAL – a brand designed and inspired by his passion for photography with growing distribution. The self-taught photographer hopes to inspire others along their photographic journey with a simple message: Find what you love in life and do it as much as possible.
