I think on some level I’ve always been a visual person. It’s how I convey my thoughts, how I learn, and how I enjoy the world. Often I’ll just stop and look at where I am in the world purely just to take it all in, for no good reason other than to marvel at the raw, visual beauty of our world.
For me, photography is my way of capturing that story, that feeling, those words… and how I tell my story. The world through my eyes, with my words.
What I’m mostly trying to capture is not just people or places… it’s the feeling. It’s what drives us.
It’s that spontaneous, fleeting moment that captures pure happiness.
The camera has come a long way since the days of yesteryear, but even if they were not comprised of the technology they are today, the reason they inspire me would endure: to show the people of this world just how truly amazing the planet we live in is.
It is all about capturing those incredible moments.
My name is Jacob Frank Lucas. I’m an Australian. I live in Seattle, WA. I take photographs, and I love every second I’m doing so.
