How we helped this agency increase their engagements across social

Back in September 2018, we agreed to provide content for this agency across social using only our smartphone for photography.

Using their instagram handle as a test case, we focused on team moments, workflow moments, special occasions and everyday shots. Scrolling down the Instagram handle from April 2019 all the way back to September 2018 reveals the spike in engagements i.e.: likes and comments on each post.

Do you still need any more convincing that mobile photography is the future?


Business Collaboration: Wakafire Photography X Startup Grind, Lagos X Tosin Ajibade X Samsung Nigeria.

Business Collaboration works and we should probably use the medium to share (incase you missed it), that Wakafire Photography is OPEN for collaborations.

Yesterday, at the Startup Grind, Lagos, we shot Tosin Ajibade, Founder Olori Supergal using the newest Galaxy S10 plus from Samsung Nigeria.

 See some of the pictures below;

Here are some other pictures we took (NOT using the Galaxy S10 plus from Samsung Nigeria). See the pictures below;

And what kind of blog post would this be if we didnt bring you pictures of the Galaxy S10 plus from Samsung Nigeria that did its magic? Of course, we did. See below.

See what what our youngest student had to say about our class!

From the inception of the Wakafire Academy, we have trained all kinds of entrepreneurs but for the first time, we trained a different kind, a very young one and the class was great. We are very proud of the young man and cant wait to see all the things he will achieve with all he has learnt from the class.
