Shane Durance may have grown up in a one-stoplight town, but he’s grown into one of the most sought after fashion and outdoor photographers in the country, even earning a Pulitzer Prize nomination.
After owning a barbecue restaurant and fishing guide service in Eufaula, Al. for five years, Durance got a degree in commercial photography from the Art Institute of Atlanta. He started his photography career learning and assisting legends like Claus Wrickrath, Troy Plota, Art Streiber and Gerald Crawford from BASS. From there he's made a name for himself in the fashion and commercial industry, working as a location and model scout manager for Playboy Magazine, while shooting advertisements and calendars for Hooters and Hawaiian Tropic. Meanwhile, he has branched out into the outdoor world, doing photo and video production for FLW, Realtree, Megabass and Z-Man Baits, among many others.
