Does Digital Photography Sell In Nigeria?

Hi folks,

I have been hit by a business brain wave and that is to start a digital photography business when I return to Nigeria.

The idea is to produce instant digital pictures(and videos) with exotic background for people.It will also involve modifying pictures with the relevant software to make people look very beautiful or handsome in their pictures.In fact,I may even provide the Qneen's palace as a backgorund and those looking at your picture will think you were physically there to take it.

I have other novel ideas I will like to inculcate into the business.

The question is,is the digital photogarphy/video business lucrative in Nigeria ?

Before I left country the common thing thing was the conventional Manual Camera using photographic films.The type you take today and collect next week. Mine will be snap now,wait and collect in a few minutes.

Any advice or further idea as well as constructive criticism is fully welcome.

Marketing is the key to success to making it in the photo biz. There are many good photographers out there but the key to making money out of it is to create a buzz around your company or persona. Without this, you would remain a run of the mill photographer.

Your success as a photographer is determined by the extent of knowledge you have on the subject and equipment you will be working with. To be better than all the other photographers, you will have to study,learn and acquire the necessary skills needed to make it to the top.

Just because some others are already in photography business doesn't mean you can't get into it and add jara to your own. All you have to do is be distinctive from the others!

5) You cannot provide superior services to a market you don't understand.

6) To understand a market you need to be involved in it or interact with those who are.

You will make sh**t load of money if you plan this well and have enough capital to buy the equipment (quality equipment, that is).

I think there are other big photography companies in some of the big cities. I don't know if they're using digital though. But your focus should be at the universities and/or tertiary institutions.

I've never seen anyone pose for the camera like our brodas and sistas in most of the Nigerian universities. Thats where the cake is. Set up mini studios at the universities and watch as the money start rolling in. You will have the union (i think they have one now) and of course NEPA (or whatever they call em now) to contend with.

Good luck.
