Photographer Jamiya Wilson is a portrait and headshot photographer residing in New York City. He’s a Phoblographer Alumni and for a while helped out here with tutorials, reviews, etc before moving on to continue to build himself as an artist. Where most people who go through tough artistic slumps combined with a move to a big city that ultimately ends up squashing their dreams, Jamiya rose up.
Born in Jackson, MS, Jamiya was always inspired by visuals from animation to cinema. Eventually he obtained his B.S. in Film from Full Sail University, before furthering his studies in photography, obtaining his MFA from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Most recently, he finished a project called Tattered Women–which strives to search for meaning in various ads here in NYC.
