‘5 Minutes with…’ is a series of short interviews with some of the esteemed vendors listed on our directory. If you missed any of our posts last year, catch up HERE. We get to know the brilliant people behind the brands we love. Today, we meet Adebayo of Godson Studio.
Adebayo Yusuf’s wonderful wife inspired him to start Godson Studio; she saw that he was very passionate about photography. This passion then turned into Godson Studio, which has now been running for two years. Adebayo enjoys networking and meeting like minded people, and “photo – journalling” his daughter. In the future, he sees himself owning a media studio that will encourage young people to experiment creatively using photography.
Your Brand In Three Words… Entertaining, Vibrant & Engaging
The Part of My Job I Enjoy The Most… Engaging with new people from different walks of life and different cultures.
My Biggest Accomplishment To Date… My daughter is the first child I have ever held in my arms. It had always been something I was afraid to do as a newborn child is so precious and delicate, but the transition from holding her to bathing her changed that fear into a strength.
The Best Vendor You’ve Worked With… Obi Nwokedi Photography – he is amazing at his craft and he’s not a bad mentor (haha)
One Quality Every Nigerian Wedding Vendor Must Have and Why? Attention to detail – if you take the time to master your craft no matter what it is, the quality of your work will speak for itself.
Most Embarrassing/Awkward Experience… I was on the job and decided to wear my new skinny fit suit to shoot the bridal prep. As I lent over to take a picture, I felt a breeze on the backside of my bum but continued taking pictures. It was only when the bride asked if I had noticed anything different, that I realised that my trousers had ripped and my boxers were on show.
