Lucas Bere ~ Band Photography (LaClede’s Landing, St Louis)

Lucas Bere, a young up-and-coming talented saxophonist, posed for me for a shoot on location in St. Louis. He is a wonderful young man with a passion for music, jazz, and the saxophone. For being only in the 9th grade, he is a competitive peer and example for many people well beyond his age. Lucas has a tremendous amount of achievements and awards for his excellent musicianship, and is a role model to all of his peers.
