–How Did you derive your brand name ASKA?
hmm it not something hard for me or difficult because when I was in school me and my friends are good in composing and mixing names in class, then to come up with my nick name, so I sat and thought of what I could come up with all my names, so I took the first initials in all my names to arrive at that Aska.
Do you have business chanlenges As an entrepreneur and a photographer ?
Yes I do because when I started it professionally I was faced with financial problem because in the industry you know a good photographer first by the camera he’s using and then my camera wasn’t very good to meet up withthe challenges between me and my colleagues and all other equipment that requires of a good photographer but I thank God now.
when and how did you learn photography?
Photography wasn’t something I love or I ever thought I would engage myself into…then I was looking for admission to the higher institution after my secondary school efucatin then my brother Olorunwa Salami (Ghurday) has a friend Shola who was a photographer, he was a friend to the family, on that fateful day Mr Shola asked me if I like to learn photography that instead of me wasting time @ home before I gain admission, that it will also fetch me money when I get admission too, so I went to my parents to inform them and they gave their support and my then girlfriend (Funke) who was schoolling at O.O.U. I asked her if She will love to be called ‘Iyawo photo’ i.e photographer’s wife she said yes she will love it that infact I should come to her school and see how wonderful the photographers in her campus are doing that they have cars and they also have houses and all that it’s nice so I went for the offer without paying a kobo, thereadter I began to work with Mr shola at Governors office during Otunba.
