Dear student 
When electrons and photons collide, there is indeed inelastic collision. As niels had mentioned about Compton scattering, I will elaborate more. During Compton scattering, the photon loses energy, part of which is transferred to the electron. However, Compton scattering is a mid-energy phenomena of light-matter interaction. If you are looking for high-energy interactions, you need to read up on pair production, where a photon splits into a positron and electron due to high energies.
