Episode 49: Lucas Gilman / Adventure & Travel Photographer & Filmmaker / Nikon Ambassador
On this episode of the podcast we sit down with Nikon Ambassador and adventure travel photographer and filmmaker Lucas Gilman to hear his story of growing up in the mountains of western Colorado and turning his life long passion for the outdoors into an amazing body of work and a successful career as a photographer and filmmaker. Fresh off a whirlwind trip through Hawaii, Tahiti, and Iceland, Lucas tells us about a new 8K film project he is working on and what it's like to test out products for a company like Nikon. Although Lucas was always inspired by the mountains, it was his father, a fly fishing guide, that gave him his first lessons on making a living by doing what you love. During his college years at University of Colorado at Boulder, Lucas studied journalism and was soon shooting as a stringer for a large newspaper. But it wasn't long before the mountains were calling him back to his first love and he started shooting the sports that he had grown up around. He began building a portfolio of skiing, climbing, and kayaking and forming relationships with some of the top athletes in the world who would eventually help propel him into the spotlight as a respected adventure sports shooter. Lucas has gone on to work with a huge roster of commercial and editorial clients, shooting everything from surfing to luxury cars. During our conversation we get the chance to talk about what Lucas feels is the key to forming long lasting client relationships, what's it like to be a Nikon Ambassador, balancing family life with the hectic schedule of a travel photographer, staying current with the newest trends in photography, and how he stays motivated to keep pushing forward. So enjoy this conversation and insight into the industry with a photographer who will inspire you to keep growing as an artist.
