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” – Olateru Tosin Couvercle Media
Last year’s edition (2016) was my first 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. – Akinlabi Afolarin Joseph
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
After four years of extreme photography training and practice, this conference thought more practical knowledge. The classes are fantastic with (Femi Coker). And Miss Adenike, All the way from Ekiti State, I say thank you. – Abolaji Matthew Babatunde
It all seems like yesterday when I first heard about NiPHEC at the skill acquisition centre Surulere and I was really eager to attend even though I had no money to pay for the classes, so I simply attended the conference and the NIKON free class in 2014. Missed it in 2015, and then 2016 was really awesome… The video call with Steven Sasson, sessions with Bayo Omoboriowo, TY bello, Chella Tukuta and a host of others… It really was breathe taking… And then i got this beautiful cup from rmd stock that looks like a lens… It’s here again this year… Bigger and better, and i would not miss it for anything in this world…. If Jesus tarries in his coming…. #NIPHEC… #5thedition… #Thecompletephotographer… #Tellingstorieswithpictures… #4:17pixography – Bolujo Onalaja
NiPHEC gave me the opportunity to rub shoulders with the international professionals we can’t just come-by on the Nigeria road. It boosted my conviction and confidence as a photographer. I definitely got better and exposed to a more excellent way of expressing my imagination in frames- Temitope.
NiPHEC added a lot to me. It was an eye opener. It added more knowledge to me, and It widened my thinking- Fidelis
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- Tunde.
NiPHEC was an eye opener. I learnt to leave the local league to start training for the bigger leagues. Also learnt that learning doesn’t stop- Anthony
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- Taiwo
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- Grace
NiPHEC was an eye opener for me on the effectiveness of blogging as a photographer, I am very happy it happened in Nigeria because it afforded me the opportunity to interact with other photographers- Gabriel
