Drake and Lacko gain photography experience PDF Print E-mail

By Ella Baltus

Two young men from Northland Pines High School are putting their photography talents to use this year,  Sophomore, Josh Lacko, and Junior, Taylor Drake.

Drake and Lacko are capturing every moment possible at Northland Pines. From sports to outdoors landscapes, these two guys have been working diligently to enhance the quality of the Northland Pines High School yearbook.

For the sports fanatic who missed the winning touchdown, jump shot, or the entire game, a picture can give the spectator the fix he would have otherwise missed. Also, these photos create lasting memories for the participants and fans who have a personal connection to or passion for the event.

Taylor Drake was inspired to get into the field of photography by his grandfather.  In addition, Drake had a passion for art and decided to make his contributions to the art world in the form of photography.  Drake is open to a future career in photography, but isn’t positive it is the career path he will pursue.

Josh Lacko, became interested in photography when his father was in the air force in Greece and took many amazing pictures, luring his son into the realm of photography.

Lacko’s skill and equipment certainly lends to his hopes to make photography a life-long career. Lacko’s photos have appeared in the Vilas County News Review and also WisPrep Hockey.

Both of the young men agree it takes hundreds of hours of practice to learn the right angles and the best places to get the perfect picture. They constantly watch eBay and Craig’s List for opportunities at buying and selling camera equipment as a method of improving their gear and pictures.

These two gentlemen are on their way to successful careers in photography and  this year the Northland Pines High School Yearbook will feature many of their photos.  They have put in hours of work by attending a vast majority of sporting events not only as fans, but also to catch the moments on camera to make them a keepsake forever.
