Women in  Photography

Women in Photography

Hiiii people, I have been away for a while now 🙈so much for consistency, I won’t talk much about that I will just go right into this blog post.

If you know me, you’ll know there’s one thing I love almost as much as I love food, it is taking pictures, both in front and behind the camera.

Early this year, I went for a photography hang out, I was particularly excited because according to the flyer, there would be female photographers who were going to talk about their experiences since I don’t see so much of that I wanted to go, only to get there and see that there were none in attendance. 

It was honestly really disappointing.

Anywaysss in no particular order, I’m going to list 10 female photographers whose work I love, looking forward to meeting and working with.

1. Ty Bello – When you think about Female photographers in Nigeria, a couple of names come to mind but one name you’d definitely mention is Ty Bello. She is an award-winning singer and photographer, she has been a photographer for 2 decades now. She was the personal photographer to the former president of Nigeria ( Goodluck Jonathan) She majors in portrait photography, she also does documentary and conceptual photography.

4. Kihmberlie – Kimberly Douglas is a self-portrait photographer and also a model based in California, USA. “The girl in front and behind the camera” she started taking self-portraits when she graduated from College with her associate of arts degree, she wanted to be a model but couldn’t afford a photographer to build her portfolio, that’s how she began shooting self-portraits. Her creativity is mind-blowing, and its always out of the little things. Her socials always show “the before and after” process.


5. Ovia Reflex – Bamidele OluwaPelumi is a Nigerian based photographer, graduate of the University of Ibadan. She’s a portrait photographer, she also does events, a little bit of everything photography and her photography is amazinggggggg in every sense of it.

In her interview she said

Photography is a great part of my life, just as the mirror helps to make people see a reflection of who they are, Photography makes me express who I am. It helps me reflect myself and personality through the pictures I create.
