CEO of Sage Photography
Every hero has an origin story and I really think that every photographer does as well! Developing an ability to showcase or share work or portfolio will make you a more powerful storyteller, that is what I think. I believe in talents, I grew up with a love for arts so my love for photography triggered when I got to the University to study graphic design. By the time I graduated from college, I had already decided to forsake a traditional path of employment and become a photographer. I used to be a rapper way back in Uni too as well until I switched to photography. I love pictures but I didn’t like the idea of me taking pictures of people or objects until one day one friend told me “hey Sage, you have a camera and I think you should take pictures and commercialize it, it’ll really help you”. I thought about it and developed my love for photography, I had the camera because I was a graphic design student, I was using it for just assignments. So I started spending more time on Instagram checking out more photographers around the world, and I developed a love for “portraits “.
What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?
When I started photography I used to beg people to take a snapshot of them, in the beginning though few people rejected it but that didn’t stop me. I keep pushing and polishing my skill, watching tutorials on YouTube and all that. Till it started making sense and people started asking for my service.
What advice would you give to an upcoming youth or talents locally and internationally?
My advice to the upcoming youth:
Believe in what you are good at and keep pushing.
