Tom Vancisin

Artist Bio:
Tom received a BS in Business Management from the University of Rhode Island in 1978. He enjoyed a long career as a computer programmer, systems analyst, project manager, trainer/help desk staff. Photography became an interest in his late thirties and he pursued photography as a hobby taking classes at various San Diego area community colleges (San Diego City, Grossmont, and Palomar) in both film and digital. In addition, he has taken photography workshops from Michael Frye, Bruce Barnbaum, and John Paul Caponigro. Most recently, he started exploring alternative processes including cyanotypes and platinum/palladium printing. His film and digital prints have been juried exhibitions including the San Diego County Fair International Photography Exhibition, the city of Vista photography exhibition. In 2019 one of his platinum/palladium prints was in “Slight of Hand” – a juried alternative process exhibition at the Photographer’s Eye Collective in Escondido. In 2020, one of his photographs was selected for the Lenswork book, Our Magnificent Planet. Throughout his career, he found that photography provided the necessary creative outlet to balance his work life. Tom retired in December 2017 and now devotes more time to his passion for photography. He specializes in black and white landscapes.
