Vance Strickland is an Austin, Texas based photographer. He has been photographing belly dance since 2007 and belly dance conventions since 2009.
He continually strives to capture the peak moments and emotions in each performance and preserve them for the performers and the community. "I'm seeking moments when the performers show their passion, strength, and confidence. Capturing moments that inspire and uplift."
His images have been published in: The Belly Dance Chronicles, Zaghareet!, Fuse, Guilded Serpent, Dallas Morning News, and Renaissance Magazine.
I believe photography is about capturing moments that should be remembered forever. Just having a photo that accurately portrays how someone looks on a particular day or in a particular place can be good. But capturing the person in a way that tells a story is much better. This particularly applies to any performing art. I have the experience of photographing professional and competition dancers for over 10 years.
