Born on August 1, 1988, in Lagos, Nigeria, Somto has always been art inclined – to draw, paint, mould and carve. For him, photography first started as a hobby, but as he kept doing it and getting better people started noticing his work, and he started getting calls from all angles. After he discovered Photoshop and Fireworks, he launched his career as a graphic designer and illustrator, and has been shooting professionally for 3 years.
Obi who brings a unique blend of experience, vision and distinction to his style of photography has been commissioned by the African Council of Optometry and The Sight and Hope Foundation among others and has worked with some of the biggest celebrities in Nigeria, including but not limited to Asa, Don Jazzy, D’Prince, Dr. Sid, Ramsey Nouah, Alexx Ekubo, Bryan Okwara, Tuface Idibia, Chidinma Ekile, Brymo, Rita Dominic & Eva.
