BIO

Joseph Degbadjo is a photographer born in Benin West Africa, and raised in France. He was not immediately surrounded by photography, and it wasn’t until his studies in tax law that he decide to practice shooting some of his university friends during school sessions. In doing so he found a love of photography and his journey to being self taught. Not long after, Joseph received his first major commissions to shoot chef Alain Ducasse as well various shoots for GQ,, Vogue Italia and Vogue Thailand. He quickly established himself as one of fashion’s new photographers, renowned for the unique precision of his compositions and lightning. Joseph's photography carries an elegance and an affinity to capturing the natural aesthetic in his subject matter.​

His work has appeared in publications such as Vogue Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, American Vogue, GQ, and Elle. His work can also be seen in advertising campaigns for leading Brands such as Rolls Royce, Lacoste, and Dior.

Joseph recently had the honour to be commissioned by GQ Italia for the 20th year anniversary and closed the fashion season before starting the new year 2020.​​
