Since when have you been into cinematography?

I started way back 2008 with a phone after I discovered my love for it. I shot and edited series of short comedy skits with the phone and later upgraded to camcoder. And went ahead to learn pro editing too
I dint go to any production school to Learn all this. Learnt on the job and through some friend who had equipments
The phone I used then was Sony Ericsson w810i

Do you feel or look inferior when you started ? Using a phone while others were using professional equipments

Nope, not for once, it even increased my hunger to handle a professional camera then, but then there were limited avenues to use a professional cameral.

Why cinematography?

Love for motion pictures, quality picture on screen, passion for good production against what we had in our film industry back then.
Tho, I started with modelling in 2005, and started acting in 2006, these were my passion then, I love acting. But as time went on, I began to see so much lack in the cinematic area of our industry and then I started seeing the solutions or say a better way to some errors I see on screen in our films. So my love for doing it right behind the camera started developing in 2007. So when ever I go on set to act when I’m done with my scenes I stay behind a little and make friends with the crew members especially the D.O.P. and I will ask questions and will get answers.
So I started going on set with friends and got the opportunity to start using professional cameral at some point, and started doing event coverage, shot in churches on Sundays, later started doing behind the scenes for photographers, became camera man for some TV programs (pressman), coverage some mighty concerts, shows in the heart of Lagos as a pressman and so on
Worked with the likes of Snaptv, College Line tv, Watz on ur mind (interactive youth prog in unilag), Berts production, etc
