There are three elements that I love about photography. The first of course is the ability to try out new camera equipment and use them to produce excellent work to deliver for my clients. Other than playing with camera equipment, I love meeting people because from meeting people, I am able to understand what their needs are thus gaining their trust so that I am able to produce the images that they require. Lastly, doing photography also helps me to strengthen and broaden my skills in communicating and doing business as a business owner.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have photographed corporate events, corporate portraits, family portraits, weddings, documentary journalism among many other types of photography. One of those things that I make them special is to have the initial look of the assignment given to them within a week if not sooner. Most photographers would take a average of two weeks before any images can be seen. Due to my exposure to journalistic documentary photography and experience in working for a wedding event company, I am able to deliver a fast turn around time.
