My name is Lucas.


I'm an early-career photojournalist based in Fort Collins, Colorado. I currently work as the Staff Photographer/Videographer for a USA Today Network daily newspaper called The Coloradoan


In short, I love photos, because I love stories, because I love people.


My goal is to photograph stories that matter – ones of hope, innovation and discovery that can stir people to action. I believe pictures have the power to change hearts and minds, and are among the most effective tools to make the world a more just place.

Additional background: Having been born in Las Vegas, coming of age in Colorado, and moving to Seattle for college, I’m familiar with and passionate about the issues plaguing the West, like climate change and wealth inequality. I graduated from the University of Washington with a marketing degree in 2018. After that, I spent a lot of time outdoors, guiding mountaineering trips in British Columbia for the next two summers (‘18, ‘19),  receiving a PADI open water certification, canyoneering in Utah and hiking the John Muir Trail. I’ve filmed more than 40 live events over the last 7 years and enjoy freelance commercial and editorial assignments. After working for Arc’teryx as a marketing lead from 2019-2020, I accepted my first full-time photojournalism job at a newspaper in Manhattan, Kansas, then jumped to the Caller-Times in Corpus Christi, Texas before landing atThe Coloradoan, where I currently serve as the staff photojournalist.
