Felix:Purely, my style is creativity. I am a creator, I was born to create. I develop my style from firstly my imaginations and secondly from drawing inspirations from the works of other photographers, in my field and the rest. Photographers like KelechiAmadi-Obi (I love the painter in him), SpotlightPi, Prince Meyson (I call him the retouching god), AhamIbeleme, Emmanuel Oyeleke, Lindsay Adler, Jake Hicks, Aaron Nace (Phlearn.com) amongst others.

La Mode: What inspired to be a photographer?

La Mode: What is your best and memorable shoot?
Felix: Well, my best shoot is the one I will be doing tomorrow but for now, my memorable shoot was the first one I had with a model named Anita, I basically have stocked my head with theories on camera settings, understanding lighting et al and it was time to practice, I flopped very well but I thank God I did good almost at the end of the shoot. You wouldn’t want to see most of the pictures now *laughs*
La Mode: What is your best photography tip?
Felix: Photography is not all about the gears. Photography is the creator in you, the photographer.
La Mode: What was your most challenging shoot?
Felix: Most challenging shoot was my first wedding job.
La Mode: What is advice for photographers just starting a business?
Felix: Never get the ‘get-all-the-gears’ syndrome. Bigger camera without bigger visions results in bigger frustrations. You can do wonders from what you have. And also, choose your centre and rule it.
La Mode: What is your best business advice for established photographers?
Felix: My best advice for established photographers is TO SHARE. Encourage sharing of your content; stop hiding and protecting it. Information is no longer a commodity; what you do with it is what matters. Ideas inspire, not achievements. Secondly, REACH OUT. Find a way to reach out to the little community that you inspire, create contests that would push upcoming and aspiring photographers as well.
La Mode: What are some of the biggest lessons you have learned as a photographer?
Felix: Patience, self-worth and human relations
La Mode: Tell us about your businesses outside of your studio photography business?
Felix :I am also a commercial retoucher for portrait, beauty and wedding photographers
La Mode: What is your advice for aspiring photographers?
Felix: You can be it if you believe it. You are a creator. You can learn it. Connect and surf wide, and yes consistency is key.
