Over the years, it has been said that talents are best discovered when children are young and parents are to help them nurture their dream till they are old enough to stand for themselves.
Such is the case of this 6-year-old girl, Moyinoluwa Oluwaseun, who is a professional photographer. She revealed her brand name as Ariyike.
Oluwaseun when interviewed by Guardian, disclosed that her passion for photography grew when she was a year old and when she was 3-year-old, her grandmother gave her camera.
Oluwaseun said: “My love for photography started when I was about a year old. I was told I used to have a toy camera, which I got so used to and I take it everywhere I go. When I was about three years old, my grandmother, who is also a photographer, gave me her old camera, which became my best companion then. I still have the camera. It’s specially kept in my room. It started as a hobby and a passion, but grew into business. It is a family tradition; I am the 3rd generation on the line.”
On Children’s Day, May 27, the little girl was recognised at the Amazing Amazon Initiative Greatness Award. Oluwaseun added that her dream is to build a world-class photography studio with her 4-year-old sister and also hopes to start her fashion line too.

She further revealed that her first professional camera was a gift from her dad at the age of five. Oluwaseun said:
“I have had some trainings and supports from a lot of photographers. First among them is my dad, the creative director of Mo Photography. I also had several opportunities to learn from other great photographers like Fototide, Oyerounkeh Foto, Omotgraffix, Bami Ligali and Chazi Photograffy. I am currently undergoing extensive training under Buckles Memoirs, a kiddies photography company.”
