An Introduction. By Kene Nwatu.

I’m here again. 🙂 And with someone new this time. Guys, this is the work of Kene Nwatu. I came across on his Instagram account, and I thought “This is absolutely sick!” First, i’m a sucker for photos in black and white, and then there’s this realness to his photos, maybe with the way he…

The Impromptu Photoset. By Mr. Wentz.

Hey guys! So this shoot wasn’t exactly planned. Mr. Wentz and I had been having talks about shooting something soon, but we hadn’t concluded on the theme and the where. But then he hit me up one day, says let’s try something at Location XY, and we came up with these! The location is this…

Black is Gold. By Ari Labadi.

How much love do you have for your skin colour? When I was in high school, I got teased for being dark. Got called names like “Blackie-Chan”, “Black mamba”, “Blacktus”, “Dudu”, etc., but it never really phased me. And i’m glad it didn’t, because I love and celebrate my skin colour more with each passing…

Pose. By Demilade Roberts.

Hey lovelies! I’m pretty sure that no one is pleased with my inconsistency on here, and i’m sorry, really. I’ve been rather occupied with Season 2 of our show (which you should totally check out here), and i’m also looking out for more photographers to collaborate with as well. Soon enough, we’ll have a proper…

Solace. By Kunmi Owopetu.

“Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.” – Sarah Kay. There’s something very calming about the ocean. Listening to the waves sometimes brings the answers that you need, or maybe it just lets you hear what’s in your…

Fit-spiration. By The Alfe.

Hey hey! Welcome to our version of Sports Illustrated. Lol! This was my first time collaborating with ‘Femi. He’d reached out to me on Instagram a little while ago (you should check his page and photography page out, by the way), and when he laid out options for what he had in mind, I knew we…

The Maju Spring Edit. By Anny Robert.

Guyssss! I got to be Maju’s muse this month, along with my girl ‘Seyitan! I absolutely looove Maju’s pieces, always, and so it was such an honour to have some of their new collection’s pieces designed with me in mind. The Spring Edit, here just in time for Valentine’s Day, celebrates the diversity in femininity through…

Amber Vibes. By Ari Labadi.

Hey guys! Another Ami X Ari Labadi collaboration for your viewing pleasure. We’re still playing with lights and colours, Amber this time. There’s something very easy-going/soothing/calming about the colour, and it definitely reflects in the mood of these photos. Primi Piatti still worked as the perfect location for this shoot, adding some type of vintage…

Lights & Colours. By Ari Labadi.

Happy New Year! I don’t think there’s a better set of images to kick off this year. This is probably my longest blog post, and that’s because i’m in love with every photo in this set! Ari Labadi came back with a bang! Ari suggested the we play around with lights, and so when he…

The Second One. By Mr. Wentz.

First off, HELLO NOVEMBER! Can I get a “whoot!” for my birthday in some days? 😀 It’s been so long, this shoot almost feels like a throwback now. My apologies, I’ve been a little busy. You know how I mentioned a second wave in that last post, all those many days ago? Yeah, this is…

First Wave. By Mr. Wentz.

Hallooo! I’m pretty excited to share these photos with you! Aren’t I always? First off, let me introduce Mr. Wentz to you. We attended the same high school (shout out Dansol High School), and I was pleasantly surprised to see all the dope stuff he’s been doing with photography. Check out his instagram; @themrwentz. I really…

Black & White. By Kunmi Owopetu.

Safe to call this one “Take 2”, yeah? I’m kind of obsessed with photos in black and white. I believe that life generally, is simpler in black and white. In fact, my Tumblr; darkskinnedblack.tumblr.com is dedicated to black and white photos only. These portraits you’re about to see were amazing in colour. But the thing…
