APC Featured Photographer of the Month – Francisco Lacuata
Looking for some photographic inspiration? Look no further than
This month, our featured photographer is APC member, Francisco Lacuata.
Well, I considered myself as an outdoorsman considering my love of nature and outdoor activities big or small like camping, hiking but my first love of all was hunting. every year I go for any animal in season in Canada and even back home. Boasting aside, I’ve also gone for the handgun competitions else in Canada and the U.S.
But the sad part of it was when I padlock all my gears for good.

? Idon’t really know what my style is, but when I go for a shoot, I always set my camera on Shutter Priority cause I want quick action and my ISO is always in AUTO and the other adjustments depend on what am I shooting.
- Which photographer is your biggest inspiration? I don’t have any particular photographer who inspired me, but I have read and seen some works of those top caliber photographer in

- What was your first camera? One day I was in a camera store and one of the salespeople showed me a NIKON DSLR prosumers model D-70s with 5 megapixels, plastic body, and a small screen at the back with a couple wheels and buttons for some adjustments and that became my first
- What is your dream photo trip? My dream trip is to travel around the world to exotic places with my lenses and camera.
