I’m Olumide — though you may know me as “Olu” for short — and I’m a Nigerian-American athlete-turned-visual artist and content creator. Since achieving a childhood dream of competing in the 2016 Olympic Games, I shifted my focus to creating visuals as a means of self expression.

I live to create, and I’m deeply passionate about using my gifts to be of service to others. Fortunately, the camera has created opportunities for me to do so as a career. 

I thrive on both sides of the camera as either the director or the model, and you’ll find past client work along with self portraits on this site. Feel free to join the mailing list down below to stay in the loop with my recent projects and upcoming events.

My aim is to create & deliver exactly what you're looking for, every single time. Here's what past clients have to say.


Olu is a talented photographer and director who can bring your vision to life. Every time I work with Olu, he is professional and has the skills to set up lighting to create the perfect scene! Olu knows my angles, and I always look forward to shooting with him.


Olu is always able to bring my ideas to life and make it something much bigger than I could've ever thought of. The creative mind that he brings to photography is something you don't see often. Whatever your needs are, from studio to outdoor shoots, events, or just coming up with something crazy and creative, Olu is your guy.


Majority of my time in front of a lens was in the hands of Olu. He has supported and executed my concepts, built confidence, and maintained professionalism throughout every project. I value working with his creativity, and I'm excited for more.


I booked Olu for a birthday photoshoot. He was on time, professional, and very patient. We got some amazing shots and also did a 1 minute video. I was blown away with the way it came out. Definitely going to use him again for my upcoming events.
