About the Wakafire Academy.

According to webdam.com, posts that include images (they mean amazing pictures) produce 650 percent higher engagement than text-only posts. That is a lot more engagement.

Imagine if you were a business owner (specifically manufacturing, fashion, retail, food and drink, co-working, interior decoration, painting, events et al) and needed to kick start and/or revamp your online presence, while text about your business would be great, nothing would sell your business far more than pictures and by pictures, We mean amazing pictures.

Your web designer/ developer, content developer/ curator/ strategist, social media manager/ marketer, community manager, graphic designer, pr/ hype manager and head of marketing would all demand one thing in common: amazing pictures.

Why should we teach you though?

Why should we teach you though?

  1. For a very long time, the myth held that to achieve really good photography on mobile, you needed to have a really high-end (we mean so expensive that it can pay your house-rent or buy your car) iphone or samsung galaxy phone. In the last 1 year, we have used a Huawei Honor 4c, Tecno Phantom 5, Tecno Camon C9, Lenovo Vibe S1 and an iPhone so it is safe to say we have debunked that myth.
  2. We have earned (and still earning) our bragging rights. Wakafire has created amazing photography for CapitalSquare, Genesis Hotels, Effizions Collections, Always me by Anne li, TimberWorks Nigeria, Lacoste, Hugo Boss to mention a few. Our street photography portfolio also has over 2000 pictures from over 200 locations in 3 states across Nigeria (Again, No. that was not a typo). So yeah, we know our onions.
  3. So we have debunked the myth, built a portfolio but are we making money? Two words: Yes and yes.
