We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Lucas and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My though process for starting my own business was to create an extra stream of income and generational wealth. Not only did I want to bring in extra income, but eventually travel the world doing something I loved, all while building a solid foundation for my children to have as an option of career choices. I want to expose my kids to something outside of the norm to explore as a viable option for their future, because I feel media and entertainment will be around forever. Plus I just love it so much!!!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I will always be a student of the art of photography and videography. I think my professionalism and skill set me apart from most. When I first started there was tons of people starting photography around me, and a lot of those people didn’t last long. Me and the few that are still pushing forward you can see the growth of the work letting me know that it not only takes passion but a constant thirst for knowledge. E2 Media Group will be around for generations to come
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I really don’t go out do to work, running a business, and Family. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My wife, mother, father, and my brother all deserve credit. The story behind E2 Media Group is that the 2 is originally suppose to be a squared symbol, so it was E squared media group for Eric and Evan (my brother). Over time it was translated as E and the number 2 and I just rolled with it. But my brother’s passion was music and he started 7Evan Music Ministry and I continued to push E2 Media Group as the sole Owner. My Wife and Parents have always been huge supporter, from helping with ideas to client referrals and final edit critics. They all are my support team.
