REFOCUSING ON THE ECLECTIC BEREAL PHOTOGRAPHY
One of the best relationship combo in the world today is that between photographers and the photography. Come rain come shine, they stick together, Constantly gazing at each other like a first date, admiring each other’s work of art, meticulously fine-tuning details and writing the best poetry to explain each presentation. It’s more like an addicted love combo divinely made.
When the love bug of photography bites you, it’s like love till death do us apart. Photography brings out the best in those that truly love the trade; it makes them see the beautiful side to everything, and they in return try to reflect that with each image without leaving out any detail. This is how best I could describe Benjamin Osazuma’s photography. This lad knows his onions.
Born on January 29th 1994, Benjamin’s interest in photography was born out of his desire to solve pictorial problems. He’s the founder of Bereal Photography.com Company that aims at providing photography solutions. He studied Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Benin, Benin City, where he majored in Graphics.
Bereal as a brand started 2013 although it wasn’t photography related. It was more about a guy who wanted to make a name for #himself. In 2013, the journey started with him as a music producer but he dropped it for photography. In 2017, he won the Photographer of the Year Award, University of Benin, and, also in the same year, won the UNIBEN CAMPUS AWARD for Best Student Entrepreneur.
He has worked with Kelechi Amadi-Obi, the renowned Nigerian photographer, and other internationally recognized artistes, which includes Flavour N’abania. He was the Portfolio Developer for the 2017 winner of the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN), Miss Ugochi Ihezue. His company, Bereal Photography.com <http://photography.com/>, affiliates with the Federal Art Gallery, Abuja, and Edo Global in the development of content; he partnered with Modzero Concept to launch the social media publicity campaign for the coronation of His Royal Majesty, (Engr) Nduka.
