Positive reviews rolls in for celebrity photographer TY Bello for her excellent works.

Ace Nollywood Actor Richard Mofe Damijo took to Instagram to commend TY Bello for her excellent works behind the camera lens.

RMD, in a nostalgic flashback of his first encounter with TY Bello’s camera in Uyo, Akwa Ibom said he spontaneously surrendered to her lenses after some pleasantries at the Meridien Hotel, Uyo. The product of that encounter were ”some awesome black and white photos” one of which became his first Istagram post. The Actor stated that the 20 minute shoot was a remarkable one after which he itched for a more comprehensive shoot.

He recalled that they had about 10 failed appointments afterwards until an opportunity for ‘This Day’ shoot came and there was no stalling anymore. The shoot led them to Makoko Slum on TY’s insistence, an experience which he described as liberating. ”I felt completely at home and had the time of my life watching her work her magic”, he said.

According to the Actor, ”TY is a consummate artist who loves and understands the beauty and pureness of light and photography. The result is a rare collection of photos that show me in a light I love. It brought the charm and mystique that I totally agree a studio shoot would not have captured. Having said all that tho, I wonder if I get to be slayed by her lenses when I turn 60 in four years, only God knows what she will see then, probably private jets and clouds”.

Looks like RMD just booked an appointment with TY Bello for the next four years.

We will recall that the photographer who is also a singer has had so many celebrities grace her camera over the years. The reviews of every of these encounters have been positive as evident in the very unique photographs that come out of the shoots.
