APPLICATION FOR THE POSITION OF APPRENTICE
I humbly apply for a position as an apprentice in your photography school.
I am ALABI Oluwabusayo, a God fearing young man with a passion to touch lives and spread happiness. I chose photography mainly because I want to be able to experience and store the memories of the subject in the view finder of my camera. Also photography, as I found, is a visual way of capturing that illusive phenomenon called TIME. Our memories, be they sweet, pleasant, beautiful, dreadful, lovely or bitter all have they abode in TIME. Photography makes me (as a child of God, a Christian) truly appreciate the people I meet and get to know daily, because in a photograph our lost loved ones remain alive. And being the one with the eye behind the view finder, you remember every nanosecond before and after the shot.
I came across elophotos in September 2011, online before my NYSC. I visited elophotos academy in August 2013, where I met Mr Akisanmi and saw firsthand life in the academy. Haven spoken with some of the interns, I was hooked. One look at the interns rules of engagement, I realized this is serious business. Elophotos seeks to arm young creative minds with the arsenal to tackle problems they may face in the photography world and life as a whole, armed with weapons such as integrity, creativity, timeliness, professionalism and excellence.
I am young and intelligent, versatile, hardworking and ready to learn. I tackle problems with a possibility mind set and undaunted zeal. I hate to fail as well as disappoint, hence I face challenges head on. If in a team I can never be the weakest link, but a support for it in order to achieve our team goals. I have no doubt that I would be of immense benefit to this dynamic organization even as an apprentice if given this opportunity.
