Jai Odell

Photographer Director
Born and raised on the Australian coast, Jai grew up on the beach longing for the big city.

At an early stage in his life he developed an intense visual universe, experimenting with painting, filmmaking and photography.

After his high-school graduation, he began working in the film industry while studying at the at the prestigious Award School in Sydney to become an art director. It was as he secured his first position as an art director for a Sydney based advertising agency that his attention shifted towards photography while working on advertising campaigns.

He began assisting the most talented fashion photographers in Sydney and soon decided to move to New York where he promptly started working, first with Steven Klein and then Steven Meisel before feeling ready to go on his own.

Jai has developed a unique identity highlighted by a strong cinematic vision which has been enforced by his multiple visual sources and life experiences.
