About Lucas Tomoana:
Being the son of an Army Major, I had my sights set on following in my fathers footsteps and joining the infantry. I almost did, as I was in the Reserve while I studied film, but the opportunity to pursue an art form I really loved was much too hard to pass up, so I opted for the other kind of shooting.
Unlike many others I didnt have a camera growing up, it was a luxury my family couldnt afford. Instead I substituted drawing, modeling and lego to help create these visuals I had as a kid.
I came across Cinematography late in my teens and since then, I havent looked back. I love teamwork, collaborating with directors and bringing their vision, through light and composition, to the big screen. It's something I feel very privileged to do.
As a 23 year old I have plenty more to learn about the craft however I do hope you enjoy watching my work as I learn and grow shooting these projects.
