Runner Up: Camera Category


I started as an actor, got involved in so many productions but none of the movies I got into never came out of the editing bench and it was frustrating. I picked up the camera to master everything I needed to know about it when a time came that it wasn’t no more my worry of the movies not coming out, but the problem of a low number of camera men to take up on movie projects that were ready to be shot in my part of the country the northern region’s capital Tamale 6 years ago. 

I leant about the camera all by myself, then I decided to shoot weddings in other to learn more. I formed a brand name for myself called Next pixel images.

I noticed a different kind of photography(artistry) when I met Evans Ahorsu of TreyzKapture. His style of pictures gave me a different perspective of photography. He thought me a thing or two and motivated me to explore deeper and most especially join in photo competitions. 

Joining the Ghana photo challenge presented to me a whole new eye opener to photography. The theme for the phase 2 of 2018 challenge I contested was ’NEW BEGINNING’ which my picture got a spot as the runner up. It was a wonderful and healthy competition, an experience every photographer whether armature, or professional should add to his or her bag pack. I got to meet and interact with someof my favorite top photographers that I didn’t expect to meet soon. It also shaped my thought process by the art of creativeness of the past finalist and my colleagues who were as equally good to become winners.

My creative process and style of photography is turning a whole new dimension, much better and fast improving.
