Krysia Lukkason grew up in Santa Rosa, California, where her family spent summers camping and exploring the coasts, redwoods, and other diverse landscapes. Northern California provided the inspirational backdrop for the beginnings of her photography.
Krysia originally studied photography out of high school where she learned film and darkroom processes. Life was to take her to art school, but a sharp decision took her to Southern California instead where she began what would become a long career in banking. Photography took a backseat as she worked full-time, studied to obtain her degree in geography. She picked up her camera again in 2011 and began customizing the photographic education she had always wanted.
