Brian Demby is a Leica photographer born and raised in Los Angeles. He discovered his passion for photography while searching for a creative outlet away from his turbulent career in music production. His approach to the art of photography is heavily influenced by past experiences. He spent the bulk of the 90s skateboarding and has been a music producer and mix engineer since 2004. Demby also earned a BA in Politics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Where skateboarding taught him the importance of self expression and style, music production allowed him to hone his skills as an observer of detail and human emotion. His study of politics created the desire to incorporate social commentary into his art. These attributes lend themselves well to photography. As a photographer, Demby plays the role of observer intent on capturing the genuine, unique, and fleeting moments of everyday life. He currently resides in the Miami area with his wife, Jonelle and his one-year-old son, Lev. He enjoys reading, vegan food, and spending time with his family.
