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. While we are excited about the progress we have made so far, we are also determined to continue to help business owners create great content quickly, leverage on Instagram and have amazing photography using only their smartphones.

I’ve learnt that you don’t need the multi million digital camera to get mind blowing food pictures. Your normal android phone can do the magic.

The Wakafire photography class taught me to stay true to myself and grow at my own pace. I have learnt to use new tools which have stuck with me.

The Wakafire class was an eye-opener on the power of the mobile phone. It’s such a tool we use so casually when we could be doing more to capture quality and affordable product and other images, especially as SMEs. Having a good equipment, in this case, a phone doesn’t mean anything if you don’t know how to use it. Your phone costs hundreds of thousands, pls invest 10k to maximize it! I would advise start up owners, bloggers and individuals to take advantage of this class and thank me later!

Attending the Wakafire Masterclass was worth every penny. I have no regrets whatsoever because it has opened my eyes to see that I can do so much with my mobile phone.
