I saw this on that BBC2 documentary: welcome to lagos!
I think you're such a beautiful photographer talented, creative and patient! i did photography in college cos i loved it but guess i wasnt patient enough to stick at it....is this what you do professionally and is your work limited to any thing in particular, ie weddings etc etc
Lanre Balogun: Thank you Ola for your kind words. Photography for me started as a hobby but now i get paid to take photos, i do a lot more weddings than anything else. I am always willing to explore though. I am still learning the trade. I like being UNLIMITED
