On the 11th and 12th of November 2017, TY Bello will be at the GTBank Fashion Weekend where she will treat guests to an exciting Masterclass on Fashion Photography whilst sharing with them, the secret behind iconic images.
TY Bello is a multi talented Nigerian artist best known for her ageless songs, prolific photography career and social activism. A member of the defunct music group, Kush, TY came to limelight following the release of her first solo album, Greenland, in 2005, which included hit tracks, Greenland and Ekundayo.
Whilst continuing her musical career, TY has also built an amazing portfolio as one of Nigeria’s foremost photographers and a member of the talented photography collective, Depth of Field.
Her evocative portraits have made her one of the most applauded and keenly sought after portrait photographers in the country. Indeed, she has the unique distinction of having photographed three sitting Nigerian Presidents. TY’s works also include social initiatives, such as an annual photography exhibition to raise funds for orphans in Nigeria.
In 2016, she brought to fame, Olajumoke Orisaguna, who she helped grow from a street hawker to a professional model featured on the front page of Style Magazine.
For TY, there is a lot more to photography than taking nice shots with a high definition camera. She will be sharing her secret during the one hour intense photography masterclass. To be a part of TY Bello’s masterclass, kindly visit fashionweekend.gtbank.com/masterclass and register.
