My name is Zak Souter-Lucas. I am an Advanced Care Paramedic in Alberta & Flight Paramedic in Nunavut. Photography is an important creative outlet for me and helps me deal with the stresses of my job. I started hobby shooting with my Canon M50 as a pastime during the Covid-19 pandemic as a way to blow off work-related stress. Now I'm the proud owner of a Canon R7, RF 28-70mm, RF 70-200, several Sigma Lenses, and more editing courses than I know what to do with.

I currently specialize in Photojournalism for current events in Calgary and the area. For fun, I do photography and editing for Canadian and International Cosplayers.

Why Scotch & Arak?

Heritage-wise, I am a true Canadian medley. I was born with a mixture of Scottish, Metis, and Polish-Ukrainian roots with an emphasis on Scottish traditions from my maternal Grandfather.

Scotch became a stereotypical favorite and a passage to my understanding of tradition and culture.​ Arak is something new to me, but just as important. Arak represents the woman I married from Syria and the beautiful culture she brings into my life.
