Jamiya Wilson is a portrait photographer residing in New York City.
While attending film school in 2006, he found himself enamored with photography and it has since become an inescapable passion. For over a decade, he has created compelling imagery with minimalism being the driving force behind his style.
Born in Jackson, MS, Jamiya was always inspired by visuals from animation to cinema. This led him to obtain his B.S. in Film from Full Sail University, before furthering his studies in photography, obtaining his M.F.A. in Photography from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Renown for his portraits of women, his use of skillful composition and a mastery of light has made him a sought-after image maker. A diligent student of the craft, his goal is to create timeless and iconic photographs while always striving to push himself farther than the day before.
