As you stroll through photos that tell a story of love and happiness, you’ll want Godwin Oisi to take your photos as well. Read on to see how this talented photographer got his start, and how pursuing your dream can lead to happiness for yourself and for others.

How did you get your start in photography?

I have always loved the visual arts, I use to have a flair for drawing stuff in high school even though I didn’t think it was going to ever be something serious that I would do.  I went the engineering path in University and finished to take up a job in the financial industry.  After a couple of years, it became obvious, I wasn’t enjoying my job any longer and started to look at other things I could do to challenge myself.  All the while I was training, reading about, and getting resources on photography, even though I wanted to learn just as a hobby.

An opportunity came for me to leave the job I was in and  I left. The time following the job gave me more drive to learn about photography, buy a bit of equipment and then start practicing on my friends and family.  After about a year of leaving the former job, I felt it was enough time to take the photography thing seriously and that’s how it all started.

How long have you been in business?

I have been in the business full time for just over three years.

How long does it take couples to get their photos and what formats do you offer, i.e. albums, electronic etc.

Generally I give my couples 6- 8 weeks to get their final photos, albums etc. We do offer some of the best albums in the world, electronic copies of their photos in thumb drives and DVDs

Are you willing to travel?

I travel a lot as a photographer, it is a necessary part of the job.

What sets you apart from other photographers–what makes you different?

Being a good photographer is far beyond knowing the technical skills of photography, its about creating an unforgettable experience for clients.  This means I am not just their photographer, I am a friend, confidant, a part of the family; and I am still able to deliver amazing images they will cherish for the rest of their lives. That is what sets me apart.

So now that you’ve gotten a chance to know the photographer, we’re thrilled that she has decided to feature one of her beautiful couples, Chuka & Gloria, on the site. Take a look for yourself at her beautiful work.
