Vincent Giordano has always been interested in photography. As a child he loved his Polaroid camera. His serious pursuit of the image started out at 19 with a Minolta X-700 SLR that he got as a wedding gift from his brother-in-law. He used the camera on a regular basis teaching himself photography. At 25 he was working as a warehouse manager and was a serious photo hobbyist. He was injured on the job and found himself with a lot of time on his hands and a very small income. He decided to go to college.
He graduated from SUNY New Paltz, New Paltz NY with a BFA in Photography a few years later. And a short time after that he earned an MFA from Visual Studies from Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester NY. While in graduate school he worked part time in a Service Bureau. There he learned digital imaging. One of the highlights of his graduate program was learning lenticular imaging. He not only taught himself this but mastered it and used it in his graduate thesis.
