Check out Roman Luck

Today we’d like to introduce you to Roman Luck.

Roman, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I was born in Riga, Latvia a country that used to be a part of the Soviet Union. Growing up I was fascinated by Western culture, art, and music. I loved it and always wanted to be a part of it. I was getting my degree in economics and working as an accountant when I first discovered my love for photography and film-making. When I started out, I was shooting short films, and music videos for fun but my passion took me into the commercial video world, and that opened up new horizons. I moved to the US in 2011, bounced around several cities and ended up coming to San Diego; I couldn’t imagine a better place to live at for me and my family.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a commercial cinematographer; I work with brands and businesses that want their videos to have a certain feel and quality that I provide. I like to be as creative as possible and show mundane everyday things in an interesting and cinematic way. Every new shoot is a new adventure for me; I go to different businesses, organizations, healthcare facilities, science labs, police stations, fire departments and get to learn about their day to day operations. Just last year I got to film an experimental open brain surgery which was fascinating, I filmed a video featuring a band Coldplay and a short documentary about a lady who filled her house with four thousand teddy bears, and now she is a celebrity of her neighborhood. The assignments I get can be pretty random, but one thing that stays the same is my approach to the filming process. When I am out there with my camera I look for a way of expressing what I see in a way that I personally find most captivating. I am inspired by other people, by what they do, by how things work, I am curious about it, and I believe that everything and everyone has a “good” side and an interesting story to tell.

What do you think it takes to be successful as an artist?
Success is a state of mind. A successful artist is an artist that doesn’t let anything but his inner compass tell him what to create.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
People can see my work on my website, and they can support me by hiring me to tell their story.
