About Me

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”

— Jonathan Swift

 

Bio

My name is Adetokunbo Adesanya, and I am a Photographer. My father had a strong influence on my college education choice so I put aside my interest in the arts for an Associate's degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor's degree in Information Systems.

I started taking photography very seriously in 2007. My interest in photography came by accident because I was initially interested in dance, music, music videos and playing the drums. I have always enjoyed photographs from a visual stand point, but I never once imagined myself being behind the lens. I remember studying album covers and old photographs trying to imagine what it was like to be at that particular place and time. In addition, I would imagine what was going on behind the scenes when the picture was taken and the context it is placed in. I feel a picture can tell an infinite amount of stories.

I started out practicing with a Sony point and click and then I moved up to the world of DSLRs. I studied books on photography and light. Furthermore, I joined a photography blog which did a lot to enhance my composition and post processing skills. It was a great place to have my images reviewed and critiqued by a network of photographers from all over the world. It opened up a world ideas and creativity for me, and it helped me understand myself as an individual as well.

To me lighting plays a key role in photography; it can make or break an image. I believe in the less is more credo because I believe it helps to foster creativity. I’ll admit I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so I’m usually very hard on myself when it comes to critiquing my own work.

I dabble in different genres of photography, but I love portraits, documentary photography and photojournalism. I strive to capture the essence of every subject I photograph. I especially love candid photos, natural moments and capturing images of people in their natural environments. I am constantly practicing and trying to improve my craft. In addition, I love to interact with and meet new people with different ideas from all walks of life.

Expertise

My work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, life events imagery, or just the perfect light.

Always experimenting and practicing with new techniques, I'm equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and use both according to the needs of the project.
