About Kayode Okeyode
I first picked up a camera in the mid 1980s; it was my mum’s camera and I was tasked with getting some candid shots during a wedding. The pictures came back from the lab all blurry and out of focus and I resolved never to touch a camera again.
I discovered Flickr in July 2005 and immediately signed up; I was inspired by the pictures I was seeing and ended my self-imposed ban by getting a small point-and-shoot camera in September 2005. It was a Nikon E7900 and I used that camera until December 2005 when I upgraded to a Canon 20D.
These days, I shoot with a Canon 5D and a Panasonic LX3.
London is the only city I know and my focus has been on photographing its interesting landmarks in all kinds of weather. However, I have also been encouraged to introduce human elements into these landmarks as well.
I love photography and I remember spending hours over my mum’s old albums some of which date back to the 1940s; I think those old pictures have really influenced my decision to take up photography as a hobby but I am still trying to find my voice in this medium; I am still trying to understand if what I do really matters at all and I find that I am constantly embarrassed by my work. They lack “soul”.
