asiko_artist Overcoming adversity 1

Oh Lord if I got a dollar for every time things didn’t go according to plan I would have made a million ………………… ok that’s an exaggeration, but I would have made a good amount of money.

I have learnt to adversity as a part of life and not some idea that somebody is out to get me, although it feels like that way sometimes.
A few things I came across on overcoming adversity
Accept that adversity is inevitable in life. Trying to avoid or resist it will only make it persist. Although pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. Things will go wrong on your shoot or with your images and crying or wallowing about it does you no favours. You have to press on, creating is not for babies.
Build your internal resources. Before adversity hits, prepare yourself mentally, work on your emotional strength, courage and discipline. Once you understand that difficulties are inevitable, you can prepare yourself mentally for confronting adversity head-on. It is no different than a warrior going to battle. They prepare physically and mentally for any possibility. Another invaluable inner resource is faith. Faith that everything will work out; faith that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and faith that "this too shall pass." As a Christian I put my faith in God that all things will work out for my good.
The image is from my time in Belgium working with the awesome makeup artist @paraguayana and model @audrey_borely Thanks for making my creative time in Belgium a good one.

Workshop alert: We have got the beautiful and talented Bubu Ogisi as our stylist for the day. For those who have sent their emails I will be sending some juicy stuff within the week, prepare yourselves.

asiko_artist Random thoughts on photography.

Started from the bottom and now we here ………….. Don’t be ashamed of where you have come from, or how far you have come. Your old creations show progress and that you are growing as an artist.

And now that you are here, push the boundaries even more. Never stop growing. I sometimes come across some photographers whose 2007 portfolio looks like their 2014 portfolio. That is a sad case of not developing and growing. Don’t let the constant commercial work drown out your true voice as a creator.

Follow photographers you look up to and keep abreast with their work. Read books and magazines and keep learning. Visit exhibitions and art galleries and learn from artists old and new. Never be content, never be complacent. Surround yourself with other like minded creatives who are constantly pushing the boundaries, it will sharpen you. Do not compare yourself to other photographers, it will only make you sad and depressed. Recognise that every photographer has their own voice and so do you. Photography is also about problem solving and people skills, once you understand that, your journey will become a bit easier. Place an imprint of yourself on your images, it’s your pièce de résistance.
The image is of Erica Carvalho, my giggling model who happily obliged to be part of my girl in the green dress project. Well she had no choice really. Shot and retouched on an iPhone.

Thanks to all those who have joined the workshop group (link in my Instagram profile). Things are shaping up and the teams are taking form. The workshop date is now the 5th November in Lekki, Lagos. If you are interested, join the facebook group and learn more. #love #art #photography #asiko #photooftheday #potd #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagram #instagramhub #instahub #igdaily #instadaily #igers #instamood #instaart #talent #inspiration #fairytale #woodland #london #random #photographer

asiko_artist Believe in yourself

It’s the creatives mantra, without believing in yourself and your ability you are doomed.

A few things I came across to improve your believe system

Get a purpose in what you create, be about something and develop something that is true to you. Don’t create assignment to assignment without a goal of who you want to be.
Accept compliments. Next time someone pays you a compliment, imagine it’s true and accept it. (Note to self asiko)
Over-prepare like a boss. Confidence comes from when you feel like you know what you are doing.
Handle the rejections. Yes somebody is going to say No to you, it’s a fact of life. Dust your shirt off and keep pushing.
Slay naysayers. People will say you can’t do it or that’s a dumb idea. Prove them wrong.
Surround yourself with right crowd. No man is an island, so roll with those who have your back.
Guard your heart with all your might because everything you create comes from it. If we lose our heart, we have lost everything.
Work your ass off like you are dancing for tips in a strip club. No retreat No surrender. As Winston Churchil once said “Never ever give up”
This is an old image styled and set designed by @lotionspotionsme studio @adrianpini . Workshop in Lagos in November, the link is in my Instagram profile.

asiko_artist Talking about Style

So here’s an interesting thing I came across which applies to all creative work. Techniques can be taught, style cannot.

A few weeks ago someone mentioned that I should watch what I share and not give away my trade secrets. She also asked whether I thought of others copying and replicating what I do.

So here’s the thing, my images don’t look the way the way they do or emote the way they do because of some secret formula or sauce. They look the way they do, because they are an extension of who I am. And here’s a statement, there is no one like me on this planet of billions, it’s the genius of creation. So if I take two photographers to the same location shooting the same model, using the same makeup artist, wardrobe stylist and light settings, they will inherently create different images. No one can effectively replicate your style (well if you have one). Just the other day, a tested with Lakin with the same model and we shot completely different images. So no, I’m not really bothered about someone copying my style, it’s inbuilt from who I am and my collective experiences.

The image is from my time in Belgium when I was working on a project called the Whispering Woods, which I pray I can get the time to finish. Back then I was defining my style, which was a bit cinematic which involved combining dramatic lighting, scenic spaces, atmosphere and the foreboding moment. My style is still evolving.

Workshop alert: I will be running a workshop in Lagos in the first week of November. As I mentioned it’s going to be different from your usual workshops. I’ve already starting building my team of awesome creatives. The link to the facebook page is finally in my Instagram profile.

PS I am humbled by everybody that comes on here to comment and general thumbs up my work, I am sorry I am not the best at replying. #love #art #portrait #photography #asiko #photooftheday #potd #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagram #instagramhub #instahub #igdaily #instadaily #igers #instamood #smoke #instaart #talent #inspiration #fairytale #woodland #belgium

asiko_artist The new issue of Blanck Magazine is out. If you are wondering what Blanck is all about, it’s an online Pan African Fashion and Lifestyle magazine that has a pulse on social conscious issues in society. For this issue, our theme was Colour.

At Blanck I work as an Art Director which means I worked on content and visual aesthetic of the magazine. It’s been interesting learning curve for me and has opened to different ways of seeing things. I shot 2 of the covers of personalities Funmi Iyanda (an amazing woman, broadcaster and journalist) and Rita Dominic (a prolific actress in Nollywood). Visit our site www.blanckdigital.com and our Instagram feed @Blanckdigital and show your support for what we do. Have a nice Friday read.

asiko_artist Whatever you create, make sure it bears your signature. I don’t shoot weddings but if I did they might look like this J which already looks like my work anyway. The look and feel resonates through all my work, its all in my style.

I shot this at friends wedding a few weeks back. A genuinely lovely couple and a beautiful wedding that I enjoyed being at. Coming from someone who doesn’t enjoy weddings thats something.

So my ticket is booked and I have started to build my team for the workshop. I can’t reveal the details but its going to be different from the usual type of workshop, something you would be happy to put into your portfolio.

Spaces are going to be limited as well. I have set up a group on facebook called ‘The Creative Forum’ where I will be putting details. Please contact me on there if you need anymore information. #love #art #portrait #photography #wedding #couple #asiko #photooftheday #potd #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagram #instagramhub #instahub #igdaily #instadaily #igers #instamood #clouds #instaart #talent #inspiration #fairytale #ethereal #bridal #sky

asiko_artist Whatever form of photography you practise (weddings, fashion, documentary and portraiture) people skills are a most. It’s really every photographer’s saving grace. When you meet a client they buy into who you are and assess how well they can get along with you.

Here are a few tips on improving your interpersonal skills

Actively listen and communicate effectively. Take your time to let others speak and listen to their point of view. Think carefully before speaking and don’t blurt the first thing that comes to mind
Smile often. Nobody wants to be around grumpy boots.
Be patient, gracious and professional. News of how great you are to work with will travel far and wide and build a good network of clients and people promoting you.
Photography/creative careers involve working with other creatives. Its not about you, it’s about what we can achieve together.
Network. Personally I am not a fan of this but I have seen it work when I try. As photographers we are used to sitting behind our cameras and computers and not putting ourselves out there. Well bottom line, if you want to get more work and be exposed, get out there and network. Networking improves how you interact and come across, the more you do it, the better you become.
This was shot by my assistant @senrabj the weekend, intriguing image. My team and I created some great images for music artist Kaline Official @kalineofficial (Who was a pleasure to create for). Styling by @efe_igbin Mua by @gracegraymakeupartist We had the best time early Sunday morning.

asiko_artist Tips for photography assistants

Apart from taking awesome behind the scenes images, my assistant @senrabj is also a talented photographer, she just doesn’t know it yet. She took some backstage images of Chloe our model that I wish I took. Here’s one, the rest on my blog which you can check out in my Instagram profile. Sandjena is also a great problem solver on shoot days, if there’s an issue; she always tries to find a solution. On our last shoot I forgot my reflector at home and she built a makeshift reflector using cardboard, tape and the inside of my softbox.

She is always on time; most times she gets to the location before I do. She is always smiling and in good spirits. She is always thinking, proactive and ready to get stuck in. I also make sure I pay her for invaluable time.

The image was taken by Sandjena as one of the behind the scene from one of our recent client shoots for amazing dress designer Estilo Moda Bridal. Styled by Mrs Jones herself Segun Garuba. Makeup by Tricia D’Costa and Hair by The Joseph Experience and off course the model Chloe Jasmine Whichello. Mr & Mrs Jones are back working with Wedding vendors and clients to showcase their brands with beautiful images and design work.

Workshop alert: The Workshop is being planned and put together for around the first week of November after Lagos Fashion Week. Join the facebook group ‘The Creative Forum’ for updates. Speaking of Workshop, I need an amazing stylist. #love #art #portrait #photography #model #girl #asiko #photooftheday #potd #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagram #instagramhub #instahub #igdaily #instadaily #igers #instamood #portrait #instaart #talent #inspiration #fairytale #ethereal #bridal #dress

asiko_artist A little thing about composition

Composition is one of the most important aspects of photography. Your composition is how you see – and that makes it infinitely more important. It helps to bring balance in an image. The image was taken in Greenwich on a beautiful sunny day earlier on in the spring.

In the image I employed 2 compositional elements, the centred and rule of thirds composition. The centred composition is used by everybody but few get it right, it’s very hard to pull off. It’s all about understanding symmetry, placing the subject in the centre but making sure all the elements fall into place. In my image, I used it divide the image into two and place the building and trees on a symmetrical plane.

I also employed the rule of thirds which I used to position the foreground and the skyline; 2/3 for the skyline and 1/3 for the foreground. In the rule of thirds, the image is divided into 9 equal parts and the elements are placed along the lines or intersections. In my image the elements were the buildings and the trees. Yes I know there are technicalities to this, but I would suggest any photographer looking to improve studies their compositions, its essential.

My thought process was how two opposing elements one artificial and the other natural occur in an environment to achieve a state of balance and beauty.

One thing I always recommend is studying old paintings; they are methodically put together and thought about. There is no haphazard slamming a brush on a canvass and it should be the same for a photographer, it’s not about a point and click. Think before you shoot.

asiko_artist FOCUS

I’ve found that creatives have a tendency to lack focus. I for one sometimes have attention problems where I can’t seem to focus on a project long enough to complete. Like most creatives I get excited by the new project idea and abandon the old one altogether. So in light of focus I thought I would talk about portfolios. It takes about 7 seconds to make a first impression. So what impression is your online portfolio making? To leave an impression on any client, here a few tips for any creative, (photographer, model, makeup artists, stylist) for their online port.

Streamline your content, what’s your work about? Are you a fashion photographer or maternity photographer? Let people immediately know what you are. Jack of all trades doesn’t cut it these days; I would not want to hire someone who shoots everything and has no niche. Focus your content and put up what you would like to be hired for.
Put your best work forward and wow people who come on your site. And also end with some killer images that will leave a lasting impression.
Edit Edit Edit. If you have only 10 strong images, then put up only 10 strong images; don’t put a whole shebang of 30 images which tell a diluted and weak story. Its about quality and not quantity.
Get someone else who you trust and knows something to help you in the editing process. Creatives are too close to their work and can get sentimental even when the images are not that great.
If your site is divided into categories don’t show more than 10-15 images per gallery. People tend to get bored after that, the only people that will stay for longer are other creatives and they aren’t paying your bills.
Speaking of clients here’s a lookbook I shoot for new designer RAAH London’s first collection (awesome work). Lookbooks aren’t terribly exciting but Jemilla our model was awesome.

Normal Ade Okelarin
asiko_artist Thinking of a new site or revamping an old one, here’s a few things to consider about your online portfolio.

1. Get rid of the Flash site, it has slow load times, not SEO optimized and cannot be viewed on mobile devices (which is how a number of people are on the internet these days). Seriously get rid of it.
2. Make sure your site SEO optimized, which is a most these days. Use the right keywords in describe what you do.
3. A big recommendation for creatives, forget getting someone to build your site, its long, cost too much and the customer service sucks eggs. Sign up with either Format.com, Cargo, Viewbook, Carbonmade, Photoshelter, Nubook etc. Great adaptable sites you can link to your chosen domain name.
4. I hate blogging, it’s a drag, but I have found it has helped more people see what I do. Find a platform that suits you, Instagram, youtube, facebook, pinterest, whatever. Find one or two and be active on there.
5. Edit the images on your site, please don’t take all the images from a shoot and slam them in there. Carefully edit the images that go on there and make it the best of the best of what you look shooting. Let it be concise and tell a story about who you are as an artist/photographer.
6. Keep your site simple and beautiful, forget all that animation nonsense, no one cares about swish and bangs. Its all about your work.

asiko_artist Instagram etiquette

Yes Instagram has its own etiquette, well I think so anyway. I am humbled and grateful to everybody who follows me on here and supports what I do and takes the time to drop me a line or two.

Quality Over Quantity, don’t post every photo
If you are reposting or screen grabbing, make sure you give credit
Constant naked self portraits might seem sexy and a good idea to get likes. I’m sure the right kind of person you are looking for in your life will respond to those and come sweep you off your feet. If you feel you have to take your clothes off, there’s a kind of site for that.
Just because you like a photo, don't expect a like back. If you follow someone, don’t expect to get a follow back. And please for the sake of the living God, don't ask me to kindly follow back. That is grounds to not follow you at all.
If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
Maintaining honest, consistent and high-quality interactions on Instagram will get you likes and follows, but you should never take them for granted. And never, ever un-follow someone because they didn’t follow you.
The Image: Fantastic model Marianna and out of this world stylist Minna Attala.

On a side note I am looking to conduct my first workshop in Lagos in October, I am creating something different and interesting that any photographer (aspiring or professional) would be proud to put in their portfolio. It’s gonna be awesome.

So if you are a photographer looking to learn and create some beautiful stuff, do get in touch and let me know as places are going to be limited.

Also if you are a makeup artist, hair stylist, model and wardrobe stylist looking to get involved do let me know. It will likely take place after Lagos Fashion Week. #love #art #portrait #photography #model #girl #asiko #photooftheday #potd #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagram #instagramhub #instahub #igdaily #instadaily #igers #instamood #fineart #instaart #talent #inspiration #fairytale #ethereal

asiko_artist So you got rejected again
So you took your time to craft the perfect email, prepare your best work and put forward the prefect pitch, only to get yet another rejection or another door slam in your face. In our innate need to be loved as humans, it’s understandable that a rejection can be crushing and demoralising. Oh….. it will likely happen more than once, it’s a fact of life. I’ve learnt to take a deep breath and bounce back. Here’s an example of guy who bounced back like a rubber band, continuously. Be encouraged. The rejections of Abraham Lincoln and a few successes;
· 1816: His family was forced out of their home. He had to work to support them.
· 1818: His mother died.
· 1831: Lost his job.
· 1832: Ran for state legislature - lost.
· 1832: Also lost his job - wanted to go to law school but couldn’t get in.
· 1833: Borrowed some money from a friend to begin a business and by the end of the year he was bankrupt.
· 1834: Ran for state legislature again - won.
· 1835: Was engaged to be married, sweetheart died and his heart was broken.
· 1836: Had a total nervous breakdown and was in bed for six months.
· 1838: Sought to become speaker of the state legislature - defeated.
· 1840: Sought to become elector - defeated.
· 1843: Ran for Congress - lost.
· 1846: Ran for Congress again - this time he won
· 1848: Ran for re-election to Congress - lost.
· 1849 Sought the job of land officer in his home state - rejected.
· 1854: Ran for Senate of the United States - lost.
· 1856: Sought the Vice-Presidential nomination at his party’s national convention - got less than 100 votes.
· 1858: Ran for U.S. Senate again - again he lost.
· 1860: Elected president of the United States.
He lost his son as well somewhere in there. Never ever friggin give up.

asiko_artist What models should know

So following on from last weeks things a photographer should know when photographing a model, I decided to flip the script. To my aspiring models and newish models;

1. If you make a commitment to a shoot, turn up or give the photographer considerable notice that you won’t be shooting with him/her. A photographer puts a lot of time, money and effort into planning a shoot. Be professional.

2. Practise Practise Practise before the shoot. Look through magazines and editorials for ideas on posing.

3. Please always have accurate sizes on your personal profiles (like Model Mayhem). There’s nothing more annoying than a supposedly 5’9 turning out to be 5’7.

4. Watch shows like ANTM and the Face, you will be surprised what you learn about posing and model psychology. If you don’t know what ANTM is, quit now.

5. As a model you are an important part of the shoot, so turn up on time and give off a good vibe, everybody wants to work with models with a great attitude; nobody wants to work with a grumpy boots.

6. Some photographers won’t show you the images on the back of their camera, its nothing personal.

7. Ask for feedback during the shoot, so you know what you are doing is working.

8. For the sake of the living God, change your look and expression during the shoot. Don’t give the same look and pose the whole shoot, its boring and uninspiring.

9. Agree a time when the photographer will deliver the images. Be patient and remind him from time to time.

10. Don’t perv on the photographer, he/she is not a piece of meat either. LOL ok that doesn’t usually happen.

This is Patrick, his agency is AMCK, he was one of our models for a client shoot a few weeks back. He was great to work with, great personality, upbeat and always up for trying new things. I loved his unconventional look.

asiko_artist I came across the great article from a model Jen Brooks stating certain things for photographers to consider when working with models. I have edited it a bit for instagram. I have picked up these tips up over the years

1. Models enjoy playful banter, it creates a rapport.

2. Don’t laugh at your model and make her feel self conscious.

3. Tell and show her what you like to shoot.

4. Talk to her during the shoot, models like to hear positive feedback on how they are doing to get the best out of her. If I don't like a pose I tend not to say anything, she moves onto the next pose anyway so there’s no point breaking the flow and making her feel like she might be doing something wrong.

5. If she’s a professional she likes direction but also she likes to do her own thing. Creating images is a collaborative process between Model and Photographer

6. Don’t break her flow, when things are getting in full swing, go with the flow.

7. Put some music on to suit the mood and avoid those awkward silences. Some models like music and it creates a rhythm in their movements. No Barry White music guys c’mon.

8. Don’t be a perv, I'll say it again, don't be a perv. I know we photogs are visual creatures and all but I can’t imagine someone perving over me, my wife will deal with them seriously.

9. Show her poses so she can mirror them.

10. Let her know when she will get the images from the shoot.

asiko_artist The photographs I create are an extension of me, there are an introspective look at how I view myself and world around me. These qualify my style, the aesthetic, colour palette, subject matter. Once we truly start creating from the inside with as less BS as possible, a visual style truly starts to emerge.

asiko_artist Be a creative force. Technicians aren't worth as much as visionaries. I'm not the most technically gifted of photographers, my selling point are my ideas and my creative mind. I still don't know what all the buttons on my camera do. I know enough to get by and manipulate light. We could all benefit from you being a creative force, and creating something awesome. If you ever watched the Face UK with Naomi Campbell you would have come across fierce Raquel. I got to photograph her few weeks back for a few minutes, she's one of those models that inspire me to shoot or as they say, gives me life.
