A friend shared Damilola Ogunsanya’s contact details with me. After looking through her work, I loved it so much, I decided to share her aptitude with you. This is her #ResonateArt story… She says her mum was an event photographer back in the 1970s.
I am an Alumni of Obafemi Awolowo University. I love life, I love who I am and what I have become; a professional photographer.
My hobbies are singing, taking pictures and travelling.
My interest in photography began with my mum who was an event photographer back in the 1970s. I was influenced by her and I got inspired and grew confident as she went about doing what she loved.
I dedicated my time especially after school each day, paying close attention to what she did.
I was nervous when I was about to take my first picture but it was something I had always wanted to do so the nervousness dissipated.
I got my first camera from my mum (She is my first role model),when I was about to forge ahead as a brand called Dameyplux Photography.
When I had my digital single lens reflex, DLSR cameras, I went ahead learning more about Photoshop to enhance my images.
I attend mostly workshops, seminars and conferences for photographers.
Other role models are is Chellah Tukuta Rancen( documentary photographer) from Zambia, Kelechi-Amadi Obi (model photographer) and Photonimi ( wedding photographer).
To be candid, I enjoy every moment of shooting. I love photography because it makes me see how beautiful the world is without anyone else noticing it through my camera. I don’t get strange looks as a female photographer and to some extent female photographers are preferred based on our insight and femininity as a result, we get more beautiful and magical effects on the images we take.
Photography has no limit because it’s very vast and with technology; software and so on, there are more possibilities for photography especially now.
I often get customers and I work with a studio. I have been into photography for six years. I have also used my works for competitions and so on and my memories of satisfied clients is my most fulfilling feature of the job.
I offer a variety of services which include event photography; weddings, birthdays, food photography, documentary/landscape, sport, pregnancy photography. I also have private photography classes and workshops and offer private photography consultancy.
Keep believing in yourself and stand out through your images by putting extra effort.
I will always be a photographer if my eyes would forever be young.
