A born and bred local to the West Kootenay, Jmieff has been behind the lens for 20 years. He has shot action sports, real estate, fashion, portraits, weddings, outdoor adventures and landscapes. The latter two he has made his life's work.

Lugging loads of camera gear "off the beaten path" exploring the Kootenay wilderness, Jmieff creates spectacular local interest landscape art. The veteran Nelson photographer is best known for his large canvas photographs which can be found on display in numerous venues throughout the West Kootenay (view exhibit list). In addition to his canvas landscapes, Lucas offers his photo art in a variety of other mediums including metal and acrylic wall art panels (view Gallery to order)

As a complement to the "Kootenay inspired mountain art", Lucas and his wife Ginia also photograph, design and publish an outdoor adventure book titled "Kootenay Escapes" (refer to "Book" section of website). The couple (and their new addition) are currently working on volume II.
