I am Kanayo Adibe, I was born in Washington DC and live in the DMV area but spent most of my formative years in Nigeria. As a child I would always draw, I spent most of my time drawing comics, dreaming up stories as I went. I would also draw a lot of imaginary scenery, usually with lots of detail so in every corner of the picture, each character had their own story, their own journey.My interest in photography started with the iPhone and the introduction of the App Store. I learned the basics on my phone, composition and post processing. With each new photography app I downloaded, I developed a new skill and understanding of the craft and was a self proclaimed iPhoneographer. Some of my favorite shots till date are pictures taken on my iPhone.Professionally I love to do portraits (family, maternity, engagements etc), events and for fun street/candid photography. My approach to weddings is photo-journalistic, while posed portraits are great and I will do them, I love to capture real moments as they occur, with real genuine emotions being displayed, telling the story of how the day went. I also believe in drama, my artistic background allows me to create images that are not only visually striking and dramatic but also emotional. Outside of photography, my interests include fitness, fashion and technology. I workout 5 days a week, love to shop and I bleed in six colors (Apple fanboy). So that’s a little about me, I look forward to hearing everything about you, I’ve been told I’m a great listener. You can find some reviews of my work HERE. You can also find more of my published work HERE and awards HERE.
