Nothing as good as waking up in the morning and the very first call you receive is from a total stranger who really likes your work.
Because of my online presence I am fortunate to receive numerous emails from fans and buddying photographers who simply want to say nice work or just rub minds.
I missed a call on my phone this morning and decided to call back, the person on the other side introduced himself as a pastor and that he was calling from Ondo state.
He wanted me to know he had been on my website for the past 6 hours eating through my blog posts. He couldn’t stop showering me with praises and I felt really honored.
He went on to ask me to drop the call so he could call back (So that I wouldn’t finish my credit, I think, which was really thoughtful of him). He called back and spent the next 15mins praying for me, I mean it was really strange and I have had the shivers all day. It was really intense prayers o, the type that combines english with yoruba.
I am only a photographer and to be getting the sort of attention I get at times is really nothing short of amazing.
I was just wanted to use this blog post not to talk photography but to thank God for my life, my family and my business and to bless all you guys out there. I pray all your heart’s desire will be met in Jesus name, Amen.
My name is Kayode, I am a leading wedding photographer based in Lagos, Nigeria.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s something I like from my collections, it’s a Nigerian bride getting ready.
