Meet Sierra Leone’s Essential Workers: The Cinematographer

In 2016, my 3 friends and I started our photography and cinematography journey. We began in a one-room apartment as our office, and two years later, we now work from a four-room apartment. Before the pandemic, we had about ten customers a day coming into our studio for photoshoots, and we also had outdoor bookings.

Our income was able to take care of all our expenses and necessities. Due to the restrictions, I started focusing on improving my skills.

But with all this, the one key lesson learned is the power of resilience.
