My Journey from Passion Photographer to Presidential Photographer | Bayo Omoboriowo


Bayo Omoboriowo, the official photographer for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigerian shares his professional life experience, detailing how excellence, persistence and dedication took him from humble beginnings to Aso Rock.

Bayo Omoboriowo is a freelance photographer who has an unwavering passion for development hence the nature of photography he has been involved in, which he simply calls ‘Reality Photography’. He believes the pictures he takes today are materials of communication for tomorrow and these drives him all around Nigeria and beyond as he tells the story of everyday reality. His works have been widely published and remain as one of the most used materials on social media platforms. With his series on Nigerian Unsung Heroines which was featured recently on CNN, he is on a mission to celebrate exceptional people contributing to the development of Nigeria. He is presently exhibiting his work titled ‘Red Gold’ which is a body of work calling the attention of the Nigerian government to the once upon a time bubbling palm oil production industry. He is the founder and project manager for Photographer’s Collage (a platform he established to ensure a progressive movement for the photography industry).
