My experience at 2014 World Photography Day

Yesterday was the day i will always remember. In fact, i will tell the stories to my children, grandchildren and posterity.
It was the celebration of THE WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY DAY right in the freedom park on the Lagos Island.
In attendance were the great photographers i have always wanted to meet – Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Don Barber, Seyi Body-Lawson, Seun Akinsanmi, Chima Okorie, and hosts of others whose works have challenged my creative mind over the years.

The event was hosted by Yemi Royal of Bliss Media (a short, creative and daring man i respect) and anchored by a beautiful Nigerian lady Ejiro Salibi.
After a few mind tasking talks by the keynote speakers whose picture are shown later in the post, and i really mean mind and brain tasking at that, we set out on a walk to pay a photographic visit to the iconic king of Lagos, HRM Oba Akinolu. Little would we realise that it was going to be a long, fast, rainy but exciting photowalk from freedom park via Aroloya to the king’s palace.

I am so blessed to have met, chatted with, asked personal questions from the ace photographers who shaped the world of digital photography in Nigeria.

This will remain a point in my career to always remember even as i climb the ladder patiently and passionately.

Photographically yours,
