Today we’d like to introduce you to Wuraola Olagbaju.
Wuraola, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
As a child, I have always been interested in the arts, so when I got the opportunity to take a photography class as an elective during my senior year of high school I took it.
And as expected, I fell in love with photography and the rest is history. My photography teacher at the time was very encouraging and didn’t hesitate to help me even when I bombarded her with questions.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road. Navigating starting a business as a young introverted woman definitely hasn’t been easy, to say the least.
Coming out of my comfort zone, getting opportunities to work with people, and finding a community of creatives was a challenge for me. I remember searching for things like “how to find models” or “introverts guide to photography.”
And like most people starting with photography, I did a lot of comparing myself to other professionals. However, although I was (and still am) hard on myself, it brought me to where I am today.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in fashion, lifestyle, and portrait photography. Most people know me for my bold and vibrant shots.
Sincerely, I am most proud of how far I have come with my professional growth. Looking back on my work before quarantine and myself now I can certainly say that being consistent and showing up for yourself truly pays off.
What sets me apart from others is how I make my clients feel throughout sessions; I always strive to provide them with a comfortable and memorable experience.
