Cameras

Cameras I use?

 

Growing up in a traditional village in Eastern Nigeria, after completing a business management course, I trained as a photographer, contributing to a number of magazines.

 

My photographic studies of Africa often take months to complete - travelling back to Africa with my children, and walking from village to village, talking with people we meet - just waiting to find the right moment to photograph a scene.

 

I use Nikon D70, but when I first started taking photographs I used Olympus 20, a heavy cumbersome camera.

 

The lens wasn’t particularly very sharp, but that was all I could afford back then.

 

I also take photographs with Nikon FM2 and F3, they are not digital cameras but they are excellent nevertheless.
