    If you are a parent raising a teenager in Nigeria who doesn’t know what they want to do with their life, just buy them a professional camera and pay for some lessons, because these sleuth of “photo shoots” that achieve nothing or promote nothing is just making money for photographers. Which is not a bad thing, after all someone is getting paid and one thing I know is if there is a market need, you better work to fulfill that need. Doctors, badly paid, engineers, badly paid no jobs, accountants, grueling hours for how much pay. Make up artists and jewellery makers – over saturated, fashion designers – everybody and their dog is a fashion designer. Photographers on the other hand make a killing for a few hours of work.

      I disagree with you on photo shoots achieving nothing or promoting nothing. You don’t have to promote anything to get promoted. Maybe not in Nigeria, but I do know quite a lot of people who have made good contacts through this medium, especially in the fitness industry. How else would you be seen if you don’t put yourself out there? You have to PAY to do professional shoots before YOU can be paid to be the face of a brand.
      A brand director could see these images and bingo,business is set up!
      Photography as a career? It’s a tough one out there. You must be ready to distinguish yourself and be the best in your own niche to be able to feed from it in Nigeria.

      Errrrrrrr, nonsense self promotion. Every day a new set of photographs that I repeat achieve nothing, promote nothing, not even the person in it. It has become ad nauseam, so much so it is not doing the celebrity any good really. You can prove me wrong by giving me a list of people such “photo shoots” have paid off for. The celebrity endorsements that we read about every day, the serious ones oh, not chewing gum endorsements, how many of those people release “photos” every day. It is a sad state of affairs when you dress up, pay a photographer only to send to blogs. Like seriously, Vain much? I get if you are sending head shots to a modelling agency, that is an investment in your career, but to send shots to blogs. Anna Banner has sent two sets in a space of 1 week. Oginni, warrisdatfor. Please if you have young’uns around you, better encourage them to be photographers, because that is where the money is. Goodness knows how much we paid Alakija, my mother had to ask if his camera can take photos of heaven.

      lol …Well, if the goal is paying a photographer so as to appear on naija blogs, well, that’s not being smart and in this case, you are right!
      But for someone who actually has a product to sell, in this case, ‘Who are you’ and ‘what can you do for my product”, paying a professional photographer to build a portfolio and a strong resume isn’t a bad idea.
      I completely understand where you are coming from. It’s a shame that our people have taken the photo-shoot thing too far….Birthday, they must release photo ….engagement…they must release photo….even toasting a girl or being toasted, pictures must be released…Instagram si kwanu gini?
      Like truthdiva said, Intellectualism is dead in Nigeria…dead and buried.
