Vincent Laforet’s Blog

About the Author

In Short:

I have a terrible weakness for gadgets, love to meet interesting people every day, refuse to make an image I’ve seen before – basically I love to try new things. 

You can see some of my work on my website.

You can also find a variety of interviews (print and video) that I have been featured in, at the bottom left  of the main blog page under the “Shameless Self Promotion” heading.



 Vincent Laforet is a New York based commercial and editorial photographer who is regularly commissioned to work on a variety of fine art, advertising, corporate and editorial projects. His approach to aerial photography has been singled out as one of the most unique and interpretive amongst photographers today.

At the age of 33, his work has been published in most major publications around the world and he has been sent on assignment by Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, and Life Magazine.

Would be cool if you had a list of your gear. Also a photographer and gadget geek, so I was just curious.
