Photographer & Owner
Jaime DeMarco Photography, New York, NY
Jaime has had his eye attached to the lens of a camera since childhood. The diversity of Jaime DeMarco's training, his curiosity for life, and his sheer love of photography is reflected every time he presses the shutter button. After graduating from Lycoming, Jaime worked for Urban Outfitters as a fashion photographer before opening his own studio. His clients include Urban Outfitters, Chanel, People Magazine, Phase One, Modern Salon, Lost Highway Films and the US Air Force. DeMarco is a featured photographer for Phase One Digital Backs and has been published both nationally and internationally.
"I mainly shoot fashion advertising and editorial. When I get free time I still love to shoot environments. All the film training at Lyco has allowed me to create new techniques so that my digital work looks and reacts like film. I try to keep Photoshop to a minimum if the look can be achieved with analog technique and lighting skill. I still color balance with gels and I have digital curves that mimic all my favorite films. I shoot for Phase One and Hasselblad, they even put my techniques and workflow's in their textbooks. Isn't that a trip? I guess my point is that I wouldn't have been able to develop any of the processes if it hadn't been for Lyco art faculty making sure I had strong roots in traditional photography."
