SEYI CHARLES GEORGE, SC Photography

1-sc georgeHow and when did you venture into photography?

I started in 2005. After university, I decided to do what I had a passion for.

How has the experience been?

It’s been very interesting, doing what was not the norm at the time and from not having full support from family to being celebrated and appreciated.  Also, going to different parts of the country and meeting different people, it’s been wonderful.

What’s your unique selling point as a wedding photographer?

The ability to capture moments at the perfect time and to edit the photograph to perfection.

Can you remember the wedding (job) that gave you your big break?

It’s been a gradual process and I can’t quite place when the big break came.

As time went on, I began to have a lot of requests and enquiries, the price and quality increased. Remember, good things never come cheap.

How many jobs have you done so far this year?

That is difficult to answer, all I can say is that every week, I have two projects or more I’m working on. I am a very busy man.

1-jgat-002How and when did you venture into photography?

I started photography in 2011, because I discovered I had a passion for capturing moments and I had always been into fine art ‎while growing up.

How has the experience been?

So far so good. It’s been fun and at the same time challenging.

What’s your unique selling point as a wedding photographer?

My unique selling points are my angles and vibrant pictures.

Can you remember the wedding (job) that gave you your big break?

That’s a difficult question to answer because every wedding we cover always leads to another.

How many jobs have you done so far this year?

I’ve done about 40 weddings so far this year, and there are still more lined up.

1-(photonimi)10898969_417562055062140_1825835393_nHow and when did you venture into photography?

I ventured into photography in 2002, after undergoing training. I became a certified chartered accountant in 1997 and I worked with Conoil, then I just thought I needed to do a second job, something different. I worked with Conoil till 2008, to face photography fully, though I had been covering weddings since 2006.

How has the experience been?

It has been wonderful, satisfactory and appealing.

What is your unique selling point as a wedding photographer?

My unique selling points are my passion and dedication. Any client I’m privileged to work with, I keep them forever, and I respect them a lot, that’s why I have been able to do four weddings in one family and I have the fifth coming up next year. Sometimes I get booked a year in advance.

Can you remember the wedding job that gave you your big break?

I’ve done so many big weddings. I really can’t tell which of them gave me my big break.

How many jobs have you done this year?

I’ve not been keeping track, but I have done so many weddings, in and out of the country.
