Can We Meet You?
My name is Fajuyagbe Ifeoluwa Theophilus;a 200 level student of Geology at Obafemi Awolowo University. I am a professional photographer and the creative director/chief photographer at FIT STUDIOS. Out of the abundance of my photographic journey, i have come to realise that photography is anchored with history, beauty, smile, self esteem and imaginations. It builds a wall of innovation around me. Apart from Photography, I am a Tech freak.I like meeting new people too.
What ignited the spark in you to venture into this business?
Well, I have been involved in couple of things ranging from graphics design to blogging and few others but then,none of them worked out.Mum gave me an outlook of photography and since then, I have been completely driven by it.
Do you intend to go into the Business full-time after School?
Of course, I have been making adequate preparations for it.
If you had the chance to start all over again, what would you do differently?
I would have marketed differently and also met more people if I had the chance.
Are you an adventurous type of person? What’s the most stimulating experience you have ever had in your Entrepreneurial journey?
No, I am not the adventurous type.One of the painful but stimulating experience that kept me on my toes was with a client.This client kept disturbing me long before the agreed schedule amidst sickness and all.Strange enough, I had to settle for a chicken feed at the very end. The experience was a clarion call for me to set standards and be more creative. This is because clients that pay the least give more problems.You wouldn’t be prone to Clients’ excesses when you are better.
Who do you look up to in your business industry?
Every creative photographer and there are a lot of them.
Tell me about a time you had to slog your way to get through tons of work from Class and Business. How did you get through it?
Of course,this happens all the time but then, I always try to strike a balance.
In one word, to what do you most attribute success?
What piece of advice do you have for budding entrepreneurs?
You need to be focused, determined and strive to be better.
What do you think of Vasiti?
It’s a great platform for individuals especially young entrepreneurs to build themselves. Kudos to the community and initiators.
