About Me

Peju is a New York City-based photographer and filmmaker with over ten years experience specializing in Events and Lifestyle. Her work is defined by her unique cinematic style and use of light in her images.

From a young age, Peju had an attraction for the arts, taking classes in Photography and Filmmaking at collage and also studying Criminology. Beginning at the age of ten, television and film fascinated her, and traveling from New York to Africa to Europe she saw the world through different lenses. In 2000, she moved to Nigeria to go to school and learn her culture. This was where she embarked on an acting career. After working on her first project she was fascinated watching everything that was happening behind the camera. At the end of 2018, she started Peju Aliyu Photography. Since then, Peju decided to share her work.

On a personal level, Peju has a profound passion for kids. She has been working with children since her first year in college in 2008, working with Head Start in Punxsutawney, PA, Bright Horizons in NY and NJ and now working with the 92nd Street Y Afterschool Program.
