According to Oshalusi, who is the lead photographer at Insigna Media Limited, this is the best time for the photo industry to shape the view and make money while doing its photography.

He said in a world where there’s an unprecedented quest for visual stories, “the focus is on Africa and majorly Nigeria”, adding: “A lot more brands are coming on board the market place as vendors”.
