Finding the right photographer for your event or business is a lot like finding the right hair stylist or barber, as a photograph is worth a thousand words. A photograph is simply the best way to save a memory and achieving this is best done with professional photographers.
Cameraman.ng identifies with the challenges involved in getting professional photographers/videographers, hence it seeks to bridge that gap by connecting individuals with professionals within their location. The platform was launched on April 1, 2017 by a three man team — Adetutu, Abdulazeez and Adeola.
Cameraman.ng is not just limited to connecting users to photographers/videographers. It also offers useful tips on its blog and training material for both clients and photographers.
All an intending client needs to do is sign up and order a capture by providing details about the event; these details are immediately confirmed by the management team that matches users with the photographer who suits the event and budget.
According to Adeola (CEO), “users do not have to book a photographer in advance. This makes our platform a one-stop-shop for any impromptu events.”
Cameraman.ng recognises no competitor but hopes to constantly provide optimal service to its clients. Although there are a few features on the platform, the plan is to include sales of photography accessories sometime in the future.
It’s a good thing to see that technology has cut across almost everything, including photography which has evolved beyond corner shops where photographers sit for long hours waiting for clients. However, with technology, people can book a shoot at the snap of their fingers.
Accessibility and affordability remain the key factors when searching for a photographer, which sometimes leads some individuals to a frustrating and endless search. Cameraman.ng has arisen to connect Nigerians to professional photographers at an affordable price within their locations, while delivering promptly.
It eventually plans to scale to become the go-to place for all things photography.
