Born in 1975 in North Carolina.
Demetrious Noble creates a unique blend of allure and fantasy. His images capture unconventional beauty in fashion, nature, people or everyday life. His work often reveals the crux where light, dark, magic, beauty and innocence collide. Whether commercial or fashion work, his creative talent shines through. Your eye is drawn to the color, the line, the shape and the contrast.
Demetrious studied Visual Communications and Design at Atlanta’s Dekalb Technical Institute in 1999. However, it was through the lens of the camera that his true passion came into focus. It was where everything clicked.
“The first time I went into a darkroom I fell in love with photography,” said Demetrious.
He spent two years as a freelance photographer and developed his passion. Serious about his craft, he learned the business and technical side of photography and completed a portfolio of work at Creative Circus in 2001. Demetrious went on to assist renowned photographers such as Joyce Tenneson before he made the move to New York to pursue a career in photography. There, he worked for a wide range of clients and magazines. In addition to commercial and creative projects, he displayed his work at galleries in New York, Portland, Atlanta and North Carolina.
His commercial work shows that business well done is an art form in itself. However, it is his fine art work that really leaves an impression. It can be best compared to walking through the woods and stumbling upon an enchanting, mesmerizing secret. You may carry in your heart what was left unsaid, but these images capture the unspoken. My work is my voice so, listen with your eyes!
