I get a lot of questions from people about who does my photos,today I talk to him. Meet Jim, the photographer guru behind the amazing photos on my blog.

1. What undergraduate did you study? 

Journalism and mass communication.

2. How old are you? 

I am 22 years old.

3. When did you start photography and how did you get into it? 

I started photography abit young, back in 2012. I had just finished high school then a friend of mine told me with my computer skills and creativity i should think about photography. I gave it a thought but was more interested not in photos but how they are composed from scratch to the master piece they turn out to be.  He introduced me to Steve (owner of studio 90z) where I work and he took me in.


4.What challenges do you face? 

I’d say challenges might be having to deal with complicated clients but they also turn out to be a good challenge because they help me grow in a way. Then there’s security especially during street shoots, I have to be on the watch for kanjo? (city Council police) 

5. What does it take to be a great photographer?

To be a good photographer i think is all about creating rapport with your clients, always give your best to every photo you take.


6. What do you do apart from photography?

I am a designer at Bujami collections and am a partner at Mihayl Classics both being clothe lines.

7.How would you describe your photography style

My style, lol never thought of it but I’d say its creative and artistic.


8.What would you say are the perks of being a photographer? / Greatest achievements

For me, seeing my client’s contented face after the job is done, I find it pretty interesting. Greatest achievement I’d say late last year my photos were featured on the paper.
