An interview with Ariguzor Ramsey – CEO, Bigbee Photography
Q1. Tell us about your Early life?
Ans: Well I’d say growing up for me was neutral, I grew up as an average kid in lagos, nothing less nothing more. I was the slow learner child, my friends were above me in class, sports and all.
I was very picky with people I moved with, I didnt like too much company and I was basically the shy type.
I always wanted to be a chef someday (LOL), some dreams. I wasn’t the sport type, and I argued alot. I guess it was caused by me reading alot of newspapers a home.
Q2. Tell us about your Educational background?
Ans: Well I went to good schools, I attended quite a number of schools while growing up. I attended a catholic school, I also attended an international school based in Nigeria, and i graduated high school from a military school “COMMAND SECONDARY SCHOOL IPAJA”.
Presently I am chasing a Bachelor’s degree in Building.
Q3. How did you go into Photography?
Ans: I started photography in 2018 using a gionee p8w phone to take nature pictures and everything that looked nice, until i used that phone to take a friend’s matriculation photograph, and i got paid for it.
This drove me to continue this newly found passion. So months later, I was supposed to embark on a trip to dubai with my parents but I stayed back and told them to use the money for my ticket to get me any camera, so they got me a CANON 4000D. Though it’s a small camera for beginners, but I still use it till now and I believe in growth.
