Registered as a factory manager in 1857. From 1856, assistant or operator in Adolphe Plumier’s studio operating on the premises of Victor’s father Etienne Lassence, arms dealer, Place de la Comédie, 19, today Place de la République Française. He left Plumier in 1863 to found his own studio and was unsuccessfully sued by his former employer for breach of contract in setting up in direct competition to him. Lassence was one of few Liège photographers who made fine large-size urban views. Took a series for the "Société du Sport Nautique" of the Liège regetta held in July 1863: "Mr Lassence has reproduced with great sharpness the spectacle of the river and riverbanks during the festivities" (La Meuse, 7.7.1863). "Photographer to H.R.H. the Duke of Brabant".
Domiciled at his father’s house in 1866. He voluntarily liquidated his equipment including three lenses by auction on 21.6.1866. In 1867 he was registered as a works supervisor. About 1868, employee in Paris, perhaps in Nadar’s studio.
