Damien Demolder

Photographer, Journalist, Educator

Damien is a photographer, journalist and photographic equipment expert, speaker, judge and educator. He has worked in the photographic publishing industry since 1997, including 15 years at the world’s only weekly photo magazine, Amateur Photographer, where he was editor.

He still writes for Amateur Photographer magazine, covering technical reviews, interviews and opinion pieces, and he reviews film making equipment for Pro Video Coalition in Hollywood. Previously Damien spent nine years writing for DP Review, and freelanced for British Journal of Photography magazine as well as occasionally for other UK and international photographic magazines and websites.  

He is a brand, marketing and technology advisor for camera manufacturers, providing consultancy services for market development, effective sales, brand positioning and particularly for reaching consumers. He assists with photographic product development, retail strategies and direct connection with the end user. Demonstrating products that he loves to use is a key skill, as is presenting on photographic technique and technical matters.

Damien uses a wide range of equipment, from wooden plate cameras to the latest mirrorless digital models, and is a great fan of all products that make good photography more accessible to more people.
Although his personal work is dominated by street photography, he also shoots portraits, landscapes, architecture, natural macro and occasionally even wildlife and weddings.
