We had the good fortune of connecting with Brocke Lyons and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brocke, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I have always been interested in making things, drawing and finding away to show what I was thinking. I’ve been figuring out my own style and learning from other photographers for a long time. I never want to stop learning. For me what I love most about taking photos is seeing how they can affect others that see them. To create something out of nothing is very satisfying for me.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have been a photographer with Neiman Marcus for 4 years. I started with freelance assisting and now enjoy working with the staff to produce the online e-commerce and editorials. Being surrounded by creatives is very rewarding and inspiring.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
For the best week ever we would start by staying at The Joule hotel downtown. Weekend coffee is a great way to start the day, then out to White rock lake for a bike ride while watching the rowing teams practice. Lunch a Tribal All Day Cafe in Bidhop Arts so we can walk around and visit some of the best shops. The perfect dinner is in the courtyard of Kalachandji. A buffet style temple in East Dallas. To end the day we will have drinks at Midnight Rambler in the basement of The Joule.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There have been so many people I’ve met along the way. Steve Visneau was the first to take a chance on me and let me assist. I can never thank him enough for that.
