As a photographer with over nine years of experience, I understand what it feels like to feel not Seen…..not Loved…..not Heard… and not Photographed as the person that you truly are and becoming.
My name is Yagazie Eguare, i am the founder and Lead Creative of Gazmadu Studios.
My Journey towards creating images of people started 10 years ago as a young Optometrist, right in the middle of my confusion about the direction to go with my life
I was still a very amateur photographer and i asked my friend if i could practice my new skills and photograph her. She gladly obliged to my excitement😀
I did her makeup and went on to photograph her in the different ways i knew how to at the time. .
When i sent the images to her…she didn’t stop screaming, thanking me and talking about how the images completely changed the way she saw her self. In her own words, “I have never ever seen myself as beautiful until now ”
Those words broke me and brought joy to my soul.
I thought….How could i have seen so much beauty in you and you’ve never seen or known that for yourself? 😲
It was at that point i discovered that the thing I thought was just a hobby was indeed ALL I wanted to do. Very few things give me more joy than been called a Photographer😀
That indeed was the beginning of my journey towards Celebrating Love and Empowering Everyday People through Beautiful, Emotive & Timeless Images. .
I have an incredible team and together we are completely changing the narrative of what images can do.
We fully understand the gravity of this task, how valuable it is, so thankful we get to be used by God and most importantly NEVER take it for granted. .
