01.    I Am...

DeMarcus is a self-taught African-American fashion photographer based in Paris, France. His journey has taken him from professional football, to working in the American prison system, to the United Nations, and on to fashion photography.  He has worked with clients including ELLE, L'Officiel, Harper's Bazaar & Numéro magazines, as well as Galeries Lafayette, Sonia Rykiel, and others.
His background as an athlete gives him a better understanding of human kinetics in terms of subjects, and an ability to capture the intersection of athleticism and grace.

His work represents a view of a Black American man, a view of beauty and luxury formed between urban environments of America and the luxury world of Paris.

DeMarcus has an eye for classic beauty, merged with a deep understanding of human agility and athleticism. His style is spontaneous and raw, yet intentional.

02.    Author

In 2021, DeMarcus produced, photographed, and released his first book, NITA: An Impossible Dream. Shot in 9 locations worldwide over 6 months, and during the pandemic, this book has sold in 14 countries worldwide.
Nita: An Impossible Dream

This work of art created by DeMarcus, sees 9 beautifully crafted photo series, shot exclusively for NITA and featuring all black models. 

To respond to a lack of representation in fashion, the photographer took all of his savings to create this book, a tribute to his late mother, Nita.
