12 Inspiring Female Photographers In Nigeria

Photography was formally a male dominated field and any woman found indulging in such was heavily frowned at.

Well not anymore! These women have proven that what a man can do a woman can do even better. Like a high rise building, they’ve moved in, rocked it and now own the industry as well.

In no particular order, these are some of the ones we love!
