Vincent, a three-time winner at the prestigious 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, is known for his advanced approach to image-making and storytelling. Besides being commissioned by most major international publications, Vincent is considered a pioneer both for his innovative tilt-shift and aerial photography and in the field of HD-capable DSLR cameras.

Vincent started as a photojournalist, honing his abilities in internships with The Los Angeles Times and Reuters. At 25, he had established himself as the youngest staff photographer for The New York Times, and in 2002, received a Pulitzer for feature photography. In 2005, American Photo named him one of the “100 Most Influential People in Photography". His work has been recognized in the Communication Arts and PDN annuals, by the World Press Photo Awards, the Pictures of the Year Competition, the Overseas Press Club, the National Headliners Awards, and the Pro-Football Hall of Fame.

He is highly sought after as a consultant, a keynote speaker, and an instructor; has been profiled on CNN and Good Morning America and in dozens of publications and he has served as an adjunct professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and at the International Center of Photography.
