Meet Your Photographer, a short series that will be introducing you to the contributing photographers of yagazieemezi.com over the next couple of weeks. You will be seeing their work on here fairly often so this is an excellent way for you to get familiar with these talented folks. 

My name is Ofoe Amegavie, I am 26 years of age and a photographer from Ghana.

I got into photography about 3 years ago. It started as a means to distract myself from school and the stress it came with as I wasn’t doing a course art related,but rather, pursuing a degree in Port and Shipping Administration. After school, I picked it up as a full time occupation and so started my story.

My work is not boxed up. I shoot based on how I  feel at that moment, what I see or what I am being paid to shoot. I tend to shoot a series with a running theme when doing my own projects. I like the vintage, textured feel to my photos and I am biased to shoot people with natural hair who I see as very fresh and cool. I just run wild with my imagination and my feelings and find the best way to express it through my photos. I like black and white photos very much because I find color to be a bit of a distraction sometimes.
