Happy weekend people!!! The Entertainment industry is filled with diverse talents and i spotted one loaded with creative ideas when it comes to photographing!!!
My Man crush of today is Obi Somto! He is gradually taking over the Nigerian photography scene, having risen to become one of the top-ranked professionals in his field but all that wouldn’t have been possible if he had decided to pursue a career in Banking & Finance which he studied at Babcock University.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Somto has always been art inclined – to draw, paint, mould,and carve, to him photography first started as a hobby, subsequently as he kept doing it and getting better people started noticing his work, and he started getting calls from all angles. After he discovered Photoshop and Fireworks, he launched his career as a graphic designer and illustrator and has been shooting professionally for 3 years.
Obi who brings a unique blend of experience, vision and distinction to his style of photography has been commissioned by the African Council of Optometry and The Sight and Hope Foundation among others and has worked with some of the biggest celebrities in Nigeria, including but not limited to Asa, Don Jazzy, D’Prince, Dr. Sid, Ramsey Nouah, Alexx Ekubo, Bryan Okwara, Tuface Idibia, Chidinma Ekile, Brymo, Rita Dominic & Eva.
