Art is in the Soul of the Artist
“Art is what we call...the thing an artist does. It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human. Art is not in the ...eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist.”
― Seth Godin
Vin Weathermon is a artistic photographer located in Irvine, California doing business as IrvinePhotography.com, licensed by the City of Irvine. Vin's artistic photographic talent has produced tens of thousands of artistic portraits, product photographs, modeling portfolios, landscapes and wall art. His award winning work appears in print and online in corporate bios, journals and commercial websites. His project for the Dr. Amen book "Change Your Brain, Change Your Body Cookbook" added a new dimension to his portfolio. Looking for artistic challenges is a constant for Vin, and helping others realize their concepts with his creativity is his passion.
Vin's creative roots began in the 1970's with a plastic Kodak camera. He waited with anticipation with each roll of film processed at Fotomat, amazed at what could be captured "forever". His interest grew further when his father's hobby with Cibachrome printing in the garage darkroom opened up new possibilities. His love of the artform is never-ending; he sees beautiful photographs in nearly everything, everyone. A photographer's advocate, Vin enjoys sharing what he's learned with other enthusiasts while learning from others in the process working with several photography organizations and online forums.

Vince is more than a photographer. Vince captures the image of who you are.... not just how you look. His photos capture the true essence and emotion of his subjects in a way that defies description. When you have photos taken by Vince, you will never be satisfied with anyone else. You will simply not be able to look away from them. I highly recommend The Photography of Vin Weathermon for any of your photography needs!!
There are many talented amateurs with a camera, and then there are true professional photographers who have invested thousands of hours mastering their craft. Vin is the latter, as reflected by his results. If your photos matter -- if they will be framed and displayed, kept as keepsakes, or if they will represent you in your career -- this is the time to choose the master craftsman. Vin has photographed large events, professional head shots (including my own), and model portfolio shots. In every case he's had the right location and equipment, calm expertise that relaxes the subject, and he masterfully captures the very best essence of the person or group he is photographing. As a VP of Marketing who knows the value of a standout image, I highly recommend The Photography of Vin Weathermon.
How cannot I not recommend Vince Weathermon? He is one of the most inspirational, creative and all around GREAT photographers.. The work that I have in my collection, and what I have seen in his portfolio, is outstanding. Watching Vince work with his clients, you see someone that is very relaxed in his own behavior, along with his clients and subjects.. I highly recommend Vince, in any setting, as you would not be disappointed with the incredible quality of his work.
We were absolutely thrilled with the result of our photo shoot for our family. Vin went out of his way to make sure that we had great shots, was fantastic with the boys, and gave our family a life time of smiles from the various images captured. There are many photographers in OC where you can go to get a picture take, but if you want to capture a moment, Vin is the only one I would choose.
I've worked with vin two times now and he's an amazing photographer. He's very talented and I was able to tell him exactly what I wanted. He integrated his creativity into the images without overshadowing the specific of what I was looking for and its very difficult to do that with some artists. I'm definitely going to him again when I need my next round of head shots!
Vince is an incredible photographer. We used him a couple months back for family photos with our young son. Vince was on-time, his crew was ready to roll and everything was managed perfectly from start to finish. The family portraits that Vince took for us are among our favorites and we'll cherish them forever. We can't thank him enough for his work and would use him again in a heartbeat.
