P. Dittrich (fl. 1880–1918) was the first German photographer to establish himself in Egypt. He presumably came with the group Heymann, Laroche & Co., of which he was a member. He opened his own studio in the 1890s. Dittrich was the photographer to the Court of Egypt. American journalist Amédée Baillot de Guerville refers to him in his book New Egypt (1905) by stating:
"To those in Cairo I can thoroughly recommend either M. Lekégian or M. Dittrich, photographer to the Court. The latter has a wonderful collection of portraits, admirably done, of all the more important persons. His rooms are a real museum of all the celebrities, masculine and feminine, whom Cairo has known in the last five-and-twenty years."
