The changing faces of my Studio shoots.

I started doing studio shoots back in 2010. It’s been quite the journey of learning, making mistakes and growth. My hardest of them all was nailing the white seamless background. I was so obsessed with it but getting it right was quite the uphill task.

I am quite passionate about my work and that meant me going to quite some lengths to learn. I am self taught though. I learnt how to shoot on a white background over the internet. And boy did it take a while.

But guess what? I finally got it right. It’s a skill that stuck at the tip of my finger tips since then. I was just breaking down my journey a bit just to describe where i was coming from. I appreciate journeys, they mold a person.

All in all, it has been amazing with its challenges. I gave me quite the opportunity to shoot different people. I really got to learn people are different too, and that is the beauty about my job: Diversity. Fore example, i got a chance to shoot actors as seen below:

Other times, i did family portraits. There was a time i had considered quitting to shoot such though. It has been one of my most difficult. But the emotion captured always drew me back. So i decided to continue doing family portraits after all.

My friend in the next picture was very shy. She had never really done a studio shoot before. But she nailed it well, i believe.

Deejays were not left behind on this one.

And so were fashion shoots, i shot quite a variety on this particular category. Gallery urbano have been quite the loyal client, check out their social media pages. They have got quite some awesome collection.

Shooting a photographer has its level of pressure. You are shooting someone with a keen eye as you so delivery has to be top notch. His name is Kimachia whom i use sometimes as a second shooter for my weddings. Cool fellow he is.

Babies were not left behind on this one either.

And so were some personal shoots, including my friend sly.

Some were downright personal, like the most awesome and coolest person i have come to know. It was so amazing capturing her in her element.

So there you have it. I shall still be doing the same kind of shoots, just not in a studio anymore. I am excited since i have had ideas for quite a while that i have wanted to execute for my on-location shoots. Only time will tell. Studio shoots….adios. See you out there ­čÖé
