Who is JVS?
JVS is short for Joseph Victor Stefanchik and he’s been a full-time commercial and editorial photographer since 1995. Based in Rosemary Beach, Florida, he also photographs weddings with his girlfriend, Candice KausHagen.

As a photojournalist, he’s traveled the world documenting incredible stories and he’s been fortunate to win a number of awards including the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for International Photojournalism (twice) as well as being named a Pulitzer Prize finalist.

Over the years JVS has photographed music legends and big screen faces, the atrocities of civil war and land mines in Angola, traversed down the Panama Canal in a Panamax ship and froze his butt off photographing the Nagano Winter Olympic Games. And believe it or not, he also has a passion for food photography.

His wedding photography has been awarded by WPPI, SWPP, WPJA, AGWPJA, WPJA, and Fearless Photographers. He’s also been a competition judge for WPPI, SWPP, Fearless Photographers, Inspiration Awards, Dutch Masters of Photography, BodaF, and PWPC.

JVS has been teaching photography workshops around the globe concentrating on creative lighting techniques since 2004. Sharing his knowledge with fellow photographers and helping them raise their game is a real thrill!
