Jide Pinheiro: The maestro of pinning down Memories and aura January 17, 2021 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

I have always had an obsession with big brands. It amazes me how big brands like Nike and BMW have remained consistent. The two brands were my biggest influences. My obsession doesn’t end there. I have also wondered how all the elements of their brands are magically held together. In line with this never-ending curiousity, I created a brand called Luko Pinheiro Consulting (an abbreviation of my other name Oluwakorede). This consulting service which I…

Revving Up your food, plates and palates! January 10, 2021 – Posted in: Food, Showcase

One day, I woke up and got fed up as an office manager. I became fed up with the routine job I had done over the years. 9-5 had suddenly become boring. I knew I was tired and needed something different that I could call my own. I resigned. At first, I gave beauty and fashion a deep thought because I have knowledge of makeup and fashion. Still not sure what exactly I wanted, I…

In 2015, I went for a computer training to learn digital printing, word art, Ms Word, Corel draw, graphic designs and e-flyers. There, I discovered a treasure…

Etinosa Yvonne: Using Her ‘Superpowers’ to Dig Up Untold Stories November 15, 2020 – Posted in: Arts, photography, Showcase

My perception about photography changed right from the day I followed up a story about a lady with vesicovaginal fistula. It was an unimaginable sight where her urine was leaking out of her vagina uncontrollably. Only few people wanted to be around. Her husband doesn’t speak good English. I followed them all through their journey to Ebonyi state. The above story is how I have continued to follow a lot of stories in the rural…

Beauty Portrayed At Every Click July 26, 2020 – Posted in: photography, Showcase

Eureka! That is the shout I give when I find a shot that is not common to human perception. Whenever, I hold the camera, which is the idea I look out for. I didn’t start out to become a photographer. It all started when Instagram was created for the sole aim of posting photos taken by iphones. So, when I got the iphone4, I realized it took great pictures. I joined the wave of taking…

Popping melanin With A Flash – Posted in: photography, Showcase

On one certain day, I was standing close to a house that was demolished. Everyone around me brought out their phones to capture the picture of the demolition. As weird as it might sound, I always had the fear of using my phone to take a picture. Surprisingly, that day was quite different. I could not tell how exactly how I was able to overcome that fear. I painstakingly took out my phone from my…
