Demetrius Philp Oakland fashion photographers

"My name is Demetrius Philp, Jamaican born. A photographer that specialises in portraiture with the common aesthetics of editorial, celebrity, lifestyle and fine art. I work in California, travel when needed.

I pride myself in creating imagery that conveys the essence of a person, tapping into their humility and vulnerability to draw out their true authenticity. This is what I call the essence of individuality. I am constantly pushing myself and the medium to curate images that speak volumes and spark conversation.

I proudly bring my culture with me to each set I step on in an effort to expand the world of imagery as it continues to grasp the idea that we, Black creatives and talents have something important to offer.

In my photographs, I seek to share feelings, communicate moods and vibes, and present the world through the lens of Black artistry."
