Plain and simple, I love to tell stories... but I'm not an amazing writer so I use photography instead. There's a story in nearly every situation one encounters or finds his or herself in. These experiences, these encounters are the very things that have developed my images and I find great pleasure in sharing them through the weddings, events and other documentary projects.

I have an interest in creating photographic art and presenting images that tell really interesting stories and memories. When I'm working I prefer not to interfere with the event and situations I find myself in. Capturing the reality, moments and the stories is my focus.

I am British by birth and Nigerian by ethnicity, spending most of my formative years in Southern Nigeria and London, UK. I've recently relocated to New York City, USA to live with my wife, Ayodele. She is my greatest confidante and support; I really don't know where I would be without her.

I love to travel. Thankfully, my photography allows me to do so quite a bit. My wedding photography takes me all over the US, Europe, Africa, even as far as Sri Lanka.

Other hobbies? You mean aside from being awesome? Actually, photography used to be a hobby but I loved it so much that I turned it into a full-time gig. Otherwise, I enjoyed cycling once upon a time. But the wife drags me to spinning classes to make up for my stolen bike. Read less

Hmmnnn. Jide's photos online are very good. But I have to say that I was abit disappointed with the service I got for my wedding. He generally seemed to be "too busy". And even when it came to formatting the pictures, it seemed like he didn't finish all of them. I get the feeling that Jide is taking on more commitments than he can cope with, and that is resulting in a drop in standards. I think Jide is a nice guy, but he should be careful about managing his work-load, and not let it result in a drop in quality.

This man's work is beautiful. His work tells a story from beginning to end. He captures moments in a wedding that often go unnoticed. He is world renowned but not cocky in anyway and very down to earth. A bit pricey but well worth the finished product.

Jide is an amazing Photographer and has made reliving my wedding a wonderful experience. I met Jide on the recommendation of one of my good friends and I am grateful for that. His level of professionalism and experience showed right from our initial consultation till I got the final product. He got such amazing shots and I loved it all. I also have to say my initial meeting with his business manager was also great, she got me thinking about what i wanted to see in my wedding and was able to narrow down my focus to think about what was important. This also played a significant role in the final product I received. I would gladly work with his company again for other life moments
