Lance’s first camera was a safety device.

He was competing in extreme snowboard competitions and bought a Polaroid to shoot his prospective lines from a helicopter. He’d shoot the line, study it, and stuff in his pocket before they landed. Later, in the relative safety of his truck, he’d pull the image out and reflect on the beauty of the place he’d just been.

For some shooters photography is about stopping time to capture a moment. For Lance, it was more about evangelizing the beauty of place. His early work seemed to say “look at this place, doesn’t it light you up inside?” As an artist, that was his first mission.

Lance is not from the islands, but those that know him will tell you he’s naturally full of aloha: affection, peace, and compassion. So it was no accident that his ease and love of connecting personally compelled him to begin to combine people and place. His talent for capturing the magic that happens when the two come together now forms the foundation of his growing career.

Lance has shot above and below sea level; he’s worn crampons on his feet, and a regulator in his mouth. And in working with him, more than just the lens-slinging shaman described above, you get a meticulous professional. His easy-going demeanor sits alongside a craftsman’s sense of responsibility to get it right every time, no matter what he’s been assigned to shoot.
