I was able to learn my rights as a photographer at NiPHEC; things I should accept and shouldn’t  accept from my clients. I learnt how to understand my clients and give them more than what they expect. Also, it increased my lighting skills by the combination of video light with flash guns. I met with new and skillful photographers also.

Just like yesterday when I heard about NiPHEC in 2013 which was my first year in this profession as a Professional Photographer; I attended the free session and my mind was blow, and I planned ahead for the following edition and I didn’t regret that I attended and even advice my friends to attend the conference… NiPHEC has helped me develop gain more awesome skills and knowledge in the photography profession, Business and Law. NiPHEC; “an incredible learning & networking platform for all Photographers”.

2016 edition was my first time attending and it completely blew my mind. Right from start to finish; the packaging was strong, but more strong was the CONTENT. The opportunity it gave me to meet the ‘high and mighty’ in the industry was another high point for me – it was greatly inspiring to hear from them. My passion was fired up and so was my knowledge base! I will say I got far..farrrrrrr….more than the fee that was charged! Thanks and thanks #NiPHEC.

NIPHEC is an awesome innovation. I really enjoyed the city tour (Akure) held July 6-7, 2017. Meeting with Seun Akisanmi and learning not just about the technical aspect of photography was mind blowing for me. I loved the fact that I was able to relate freely with him as well as the other tutor -Akinlabi Afolarin. What NIPHEC is doing makes me proud to say I am a photographer and i look forward to more.

Alalade Daniel Oluwadara

As a female photographer in a male-dominated field, coming to NiPHEC 2013 helped me to be more confident and believe in my dreams. I acquired a lot of old, new, simple and complex skills of taking good shots. I also learnt how to use natural light to my advantage and how to manage my business, get the right clients, manage them and get the job done WELL. Attending the conference also helped me to know that I’m not alone in this field as a female. I met and networked with a lot of photographers, a lot of whom have been my friend and which I can call on anytime I need help.


NiPHEC was my first ever contact with professional photography. I didn’t have any camera then, & it was d beginning of my career as a photographer. However, i was so glad because I learnt a lot about the basics i needed to move forward. It inspired me to push myself to learn more, realizing it was much more technical than I thought. As to networking, 80% of the photographers I know now was through NiPHEC. I met the seniors in the industry and heard what was happening and ultimately decided that THIS IS HOW I WANT TO ROLL.


I had my first experience with NiPHEC in 2015 where I learnt the basic principles in photography including hands on training and even more than I bargained for.

I had been taking pictures with my phone and I decided to take the bold step in learning more about photography and NiPHEC was the perfect platform for this and is still is.

Its always an opportunity I look forward to, as I get to meet top professionals in Nigeria and even international photographers who have encouraged me through my photography journey.It gets better over the years as there’s always something new to take home.

I can categorically say that NiPHEC has been the best thing that has happened to me photographically.😊❤
