I am an accidental photographer having unconsciously understudied the great ones while promoting photography in Lagos Nigeria in the 80sand 90s. Particularly working with Philip TRIMNELL while packaging the first National Photo Festival (Fotofest 88) a competition for photo journalists in 1988. I have always seen myself as an opinionated person looking out for the unique in situations and you could say that photo provides me at once the summary,the evidence and an opportune opinion in a digitalized online environment of the present era. It also allows me to hide under my amateur journalism practice and forcefully express my own view of events.
I like to compose my shots before hand like my writing. Already I know the shot to take for the summary of events and I do it also with a short video at the same time.i am still working on my editing so I have to be precise in composing and give a short title too. Sometimes it does not come off but as breaking news it is almost always likely to play a role.
