Adam D. Vance
Photojournalist/SNG Operator

Adam Vance is a story in his own right. Born in Saigon in the middle of the Vietnam War he was orphaned and brought to America as part of Operation Baby Lift. He was raised in New Mexico where he began is journalist career as a still photographer for the Gallup Independent.

He then embarked to Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM. While persuing his Mass Communication degree he continued to work for the Amarillo Globe News until graduation.

Immediately following graduation he was hired by NBC affiliate, KOB-TV and later joined KOAT-TV. Years later, he and his wife, Paulette, embarked to Tampa where he continued his passion for this profession we call "story-telling".

Adam is a photographer who likes to offer a unique perspective, by putting a camera where you normally cannot. He is a logistical expert and one who likes to solve your technical needs.

Currently, Adam is a Special Projects Photojournalist/Editor and Satellite Truck Operator at 10News/WTSP.COM. He has had the opportunity to bring the Tampa Bay viewers, multiple Shuttle Launches, Super Bowls, World Series coverage, Stanley Cup Championships, BCS victories and countless Hurricanes. Having completed 9 years with 10 News, he has figured out this business — it is not only about story telling, it is about people.

He recently joined the NPPA Faculty and is now the Workshop Co-Director to help a new generation of story-tellers, who offers a creative, logistical and technical mind.

His greatest stories are those about his wife, Paulette and twin sons, Bryce and Connor.
