A love of words paved the way for Canon Ambassador Emmanuel Oyeleke to unlock his passion for photography.
Possessing a portfolio bursting with iconic fashion and beauty images, Nigerian lifestyle photographer Emmanuel is one of the most in-demand photographers in his country. Yet his journey into the industry was less than conventional.
"I used to play Scrabble professionally and fell in love with photography when I started travelling around the world for tournaments," he explains. "I wanted to bring back memories from trips I had taken, and to portray this in my pictures – different countries, experiences and cultures. Finding this profession was actually down to chance."
