“If you want to get to know who I am, take a look at the people I photograph. I can be as naked as a nude or as dark as a silhouette.”
I am someone who can be easily swayed by the appearance of something. If it looks cool or is wonderfully designed I will spend the money on it. I am an advertiser’s dream. I claim to be a photographer, but I’m simply on a journey of discovery and creativity.
I spent time in the US Army as a rifleman and wasn’t necessarily a fan of everything I did. The first time I took up a camera was during my first deployment and the first image I ever took is what got me hooked on photography.
I believe that good photography, like wine, gets better and better over time. I’m in no rush to be the next Avedon, Demarchelier or LaChapelle, though those are the people I admire the most for their visual prowess. I am on a journey and it seems to be a long trip and as such I’m simply along for the ride.
The key is, progress. Not perfection.
My name is Lukas North and I’d like to make better photographs for you.
