Arteh Odjidja  Photographer / Speaker / Educator

Arteh Odjidja is an award-winning photographer and educator specialising in portraiture and fine art photography. He has had the privilege of speaking and exhibiting his work throughout the UK and US. Arteh considers London his home but also draws much inspiration for his work, from his West African heritage. London is also where he completed his degree studies in graphic design at the University of the Arts London –LCC. He currently runs his photography and Art Direction business in London. Growing up with a father working in the filmmaking industry, Arteh developed an early fascination with the creative process and since becoming an established photographer in his own right, Arteh has been commissioned to create work for some of the world’s most recognised brands and organisations including Christian Dior, Paul Smith, Ozwald Boateng Savile Row, Montblanc, Oxfam UK to name a few. He is also an Akademie tutor for the premium German camera brand Leica camera – Allowing him to share his experience and unique approaches to his work through hands-on workshops and presentations organised throughout the UK. 

Arteh’s growing passion to make a positive impact with his work has led him to explore project-based assignments both locally and internationally. His projects aim to challenge our sense of privilege and equality in a transient, fast-paced, modern socio-economic world. His work has been exhibited extensively in the US and the UK, with prominent galleries like the Tate Modern, The British Museum, City hall, The Museum of Contemporary Photography – Chicago IL (to name some), inviting him to present his project work and engage with their audiences. Arteh has also spoken at universities and colleges throughout the UK and the US hoping to inspire young creatives to forge a compelling future, with a focus on positive change.
