Lucas Jackson

Lucas Jackson grew up on a remote cattle ranch near Quemado, New Mexico with his parents and three siblings. He received a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, then spent several years as a commercial salmon fisherman in Alaska before beginning his career in journalism.

As a Reuters senior photographer based in New York, Jackson has a wide range of experience covering news events, ranging from the Academy® Awards to the aftermath of natural disasters, and both nationally and internationally scaled stories. He has covered racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, the impacts of climate change on glaciers in Greenland, coral degradation in the Caribbean, the 2014 Sochi Olympics, and the forever wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
