BOC Shoot in Lekki || Nigeria Portrait Photographer

So when Femi aka Flow asked me to come shoot his band, BOC, I was a little nervous. I had never shot a group of guys before and any photographer will tell you that the dynamics of shooting a group of men is very different to shooting a guy and his girl or a guy on his own. It’s a delicate balance of the individual personalities  versus the cohesiveness of the group. But never one to turn down a challenge, I said “Sure – I would love to!” .  

Well I needn’t have worried because BOC – Emphacy, Shacy, Fatt Beatz, Izeal and Mr Flow himself –  are an awesome group of guys. Good looking, funny and most importantly showmen. You know how I love anyone who can work the camera and these fellas sure did. So I simply asked them to do their thing and I did mine ;-).

We worked in three locations including the studio and got a lot of different looks, which I am very pleased with. More importantly, the guys loved their images and much to my delight after seeing the finished product, Flow had the following status update on his Facebook page a couple of hours later:

Wani Olatunde (Olajiga) is the “baddest” photographer in gidi…. Tell dem Flow says so and it is authentic!” on Saturday” 

Now how’s that for an endorsement!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the guys for letting me shoot you. For all you fans out there, BOC’s single “Mo Ya To” will be released next Friday – so keep a look out. And as always here are some of my favourite images from the session.

Take care
Wani
