Arteh Odjidja

Arteh Odjidja is an  award-winning portrait photographer and educator born and raised in London.Arteh considers London to be his home and a place of inspiration for his work.He also draws much inspiration from his global travels and his focus on  empowerment through the medium of portraiture. London is also where he  completed his degree in graphic design at (UAL) University of the Arts London and now currently runs his  photography business Arteh Odjidja Photography. Growing up with a father working  in the filmmaking industry, Arteh developed an early fascination with the creative process and since becoming a professional photographer, has been commissioned to create work for some of the world’s most  recognized brands and organisations including Virgin Atlantic, Christian Dior,Paul Smith, Ozwald Boateng Savile Row, Mont blanc, Oxfam-UK to name a few. Over the last 7 years, Arteh has also been active as an ambassador photographer for the premium German camera brand Leica camera UK–allowing him to share his knowledge and experience through hands-on workshops and presentations throughout the UK. 

Arteh’s growing passion  to make a positive impact through his work has led him to explore international  project-based assignments and self-initiated personal projects, that challenge  our sense of privilege and equality in our modern world. His well publicised  ‘The Stranger Series’ Project which profiles the stories of young people from  migrant and refugee backgrounds has been exhibited extensively throughout the  US and UK in prominent galleries and public museums like the Tate Modern, The  British Museum, City hall London, The Museum of Contemporary Photography –Chicago IL (to name some) and has even been exhibited to the Queen as part of  his collaboration with the young people’s charity Coram UK in 2018.  

Arteh also has a passion to support and inspire young people in African nations wanting to pursue a brighter future for themselves through education. He recently completed the Berlin BMW Marathon to raise money for the work of Street Child Charity who provide education resources to some of the most remote, rural communities in countries like Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
