With relatively humble beginnings, LA-based Van Styles went on to pave his own way into the world of photography out of the experience he gained directing within the world of adult films. After a brief stint as a sponsored skateboarder, Van edged his way into the world of adult films after a chance encounter with a heavyweight in the adult film production world at a San Fernando Valley skate camp where Van was teaching at the time. Since then, Van Styles has been able to fuse his personal interest in street fashion and his proclivity behind-the-lens into a photography niche that is rapidly growing in popularity. Aligning with Stevie Williams’ DGK, Van recently stepped into the studio with model, Tianna Gregory for a special collaborative project. In the latest Brainstorm episode from Kayo TV, Van Styles speaks about his development as a photographer, his daily challenges and what it is like working with DGK.
