Follow Demxx on:
Question 1: What got you into photography?
I found my love for photography through graphic design. The curiosity of photo editing was appealing to me and I feel like that was the beginning of a love story. My very first camera was a Canon t2i and ever since I haven't stopped learning the vast world of photography.
Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue photography?
First, I was inspired by two of my older friend’s who I met through my older brother. I'd skate with them from time-to-time when I was 15. Witnessing them photograph skaters from the local skate parks to setting up their own photo-booth and roaming coverage at warehouse parties on the weekends was inspiring. I found myself pursuing music photography at some point in my life. Five years later, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph some of the most demanding artists in the Electronic Dance Music industry across the States, Asia & South America.
Question 3: How would you define your style of work?
Aside from music photography being my prime, you can also find me shooting people, nature, commercial, & landscapes. I feel like I would only be limiting myself as a photographer to be focused in one specific area, and that’s something i’d hate to do.
Question 4: What do you hope someone will gain out of seeing your photography?
Inspiration. I hope to inspire any up and coming talent and to not be afraid of their eye behind the camera & to believe in themselves because I’m a firm believer of anything being possible.
Question 5: What's your favorite photo(s) you have taken so far?
Here are my top 5 photos I’ve taken over the past years.
1. Martin Garrix - Coachella - Indio, CA
2. Zedd - True Colors Tour at Staples Center - Los Angeles, CA
3. Kygo - The Greek Theater - Hollywood CA
4. Outkast - Coachella - Indio, CA
5. Whyel - Belasco Theater - Los Angeles, CA

Question 6: How far do you plan on taking your photography? Any specific future plans or goals?
Wherever the universe ends? Perhaps? Ideally I'd love to end up shooting artists from the music industry or even to shoot campaigns for designer brands.
As for 2016, I’m working on getting back on the road with at least over 5 different artists this year. One step at a time & see where it takes me from there.
