Mill Valley, CA
DeMaLu (Deborah Martin-Lueder) is a fine art and contemporary portraiture photographer. Fine Art Photography: The idea of creating something beautiful out of what is considered garbage or elements of deterioration is one of my passions. Beauty is all around us everyday if we look hard enough and break the norms of what we are used to seeing in our own environments. A day spent scouring the floors of abandoned buildings forgotten in time and discovering beautiful textures and architectural elements provides unique canvases for digital compositing. I also have been creating more Travel and Landscapes. My art is inspired by my experience in filmmaking, illustration and music. These layered digital photographs become stories that I weave by using abstraction or historical and tribal figures. Contemporary Portraiture Photography: DeMaLu is also passionate about photographing primarily women. Capturing their essence for whatever desires they may have whether it be Senior Portraits, corporate/acting headshots, branding, private boudoir sessions, glamour photos, or in her beautiful natural state. Photographing women at all stages of her life is an important documentation that lasts forever making a still frame of one particular moment in time. It is an empowering and enlightening way to tell your own story on your own terms. I am happy to help the client through this fun process by assisting them in wardrobe ideas, themes, referrals to wonderful stylists, prop rentals and beautiful locations other than studio. I enjoy working with clients by creating composite fantasy originals. The Photo Fantasies are always an exciting artistic process for me. I enjoy spending time with the client to find out how they see the world, what their vision is, learning their color palettes that fits their home and having their trust in me. This allows me to put a spin with my artistry creating a specific art piece for their home or a gift to someone that no one else can duplicate which has personal meaning. Available for these types of creative commissions and photography sessions. If you don’t find anything that resonates with you at my studio or on my website, I am happy to come to your home to find images that will work in your home as I have an extensive library of images. I am also available for commissions will can be created specifically for you home. All images are retouched, original and printed by a professional lab on exhibition quality paper, archival foam core, Giclee, Metal.
Shoot all the time, love to travel, hike and explore new places.
