Where to start with Julio Lucas? He’s a 32-year-old illustrator, web designer, photographer, athlete and Ringling School of Art and Design graduate who won first place in the 2014 iPhone Photography Awards. He’s an adventurer who loves climbing, flying and the outdoors. Julio once worked as a whitewater rafting guide as a teenager and had a near death experience when he ran out of air while on a scuba-diving trip two years ago.
“There was a moment … within that moment, where you become really calm and focused,” Lucas says. “It’s a really strange feeling.” The best part is these stories are only the beginning.

Cell phones have come a long way over the past decade. While we use them to check our email, map the closest route to the grocery store or text a friend, it (almost) goes without saying that the cell phone is absolutely king when it comes to photography. Read More
