#SMWLagosTECNO: Over Two Years Of Travel And Documentary Photography With Just My Smartphone

The world of Photography has continued to grow over the years with an increasing number of freelance Journalists, visual storytellers, travelers, bloggers & vloggers and basically in just about all areas of the creative industry. And what’s even more interesting is that the tools to enable us to carry out the Jobs are becoming increasingly more available and creatives’ are using this opportunity to communicate, document and even market products and services.

With your Smartphone and the steady advancements in phone cameras, you no longer require huge and fancy cameras and gadgets to do the job in Photography especially when you don’t have them readily available to you.

For me as a Travel and Documentary Photographer, and with over two years of experience exploring cultures and lifestyle across Nigeria, I have followed events and told stories using just my Smartphone – TECNO Smartphone(s). I have also has a result held a photography exhibition that received quite a good reception both locally and internationally, all with just my Smartphone.
