They also placed an order for a purchase of full set camera.“Just two months of this training and I became the number two professional photographer in my church,” he said. “This means I am next to my trainer. Most times now, I coordinate and take photographs, even when my trainer is not around to supervise me.”
His diligence and passion for photography has helped him to achieve a lot and cover many grounds. But despite all this, he has remanined focused on his primary aim, which is his education. “I have been able to strike a balance between my studies and these other things. They don’t affect my education,” he said.
Since he ventured into photography, Olamiposi has been able to establish his own photography studio with his parents’ support. “I have also developed my own photography instagram page @marvxphotography engage on weekly (weekends only) photography services that earn me an average of N60,000 monthly, while still excelling in my studies at school.
