A very big leap to me becoming a house hold name in the nigerian photogrpahy market transpired yesterday. When my article surprisingly got published in one of the national papers here in lagos Nigeria. Yes i am here on the ground in Lagos for two months. I am hoping to use this long stay as a spring board to get noticed and taken seriously as a photographer in a country like Nigeria where soo many call themselves photographers.
I found the link to the online readable version. see below. Enjoy and i look forward to seeing you at our next shoot.
Well, this is clear proof great photography improves lives. Something i've believed for so long. It is nice to have a scientific research that backs it up.
a little extract from the blog is below...
One of the hidden but powerful aspects of family photography that moms and most photographers rarely consider is how it can help us raise children with stronger confidence in their own worth and abilities. Psychologists and experts have done some work in recent decades exploring the link.
A revealing study was conducted in 1975 with a group of fourth graders at a Tennessee school by Tulane University. During a five week period, the children took Polaroid instant photos of themselves with provided cameras in a variety of assigned poses, compositions and expressing various emotions.

Many many thanks Jerry, i am a big fan of his style of photography. I definitely learnt one new tip from this video. I recommend this video to everyone that wants develop and not always photograph in their comfort zone all of the time. I know i always want to be better than my last shoot. And learning something new keeps me sharp, intrested and inspired.
I am absolutely stoked that i have managed to create this full website in such a short time. thank you! thank you!! thank you!!! WIX.com for having such an awesomely intuitive and easy platform to work with. Please tell me where i can sing your praises even more and i'll be there. I guess i appreciate WIX so much more maybe because i know how much hair i lost whilst designing and or updating my last site. honestly one needs to be an astronaut ten times over to figure clickpic out. oops did i just mention their name?!?!?!
Just ordered a fourth phottix Odin receiver to add to my growing stuck of gear. the fourth is for my fourth flash unit which i have had to make do by mixing equipment/gear. Reason for getting the odin instead of my older cheaper Phottix stratos model has to do of course with the technical advantages of the odin. The odin does not have a sync limit and i can control the flash power directly from my camera.
Waoo it hasn't being as straight forward as i imagined it would be creating / designing and editing this site. Made soo much easier with WIX's intutive site design tools. It would have taken me over 10 years had i not bitten the bullet and left my old web host; Clikpic. Sorry but i cannot imaging how they can offer such an archaic system to design a visual site. Enough moaning i am here now, thanks WIX.
above is a sample of a product shoot i finished whilst at the same time designing this site.
