Meet Your Photographer, a short series that will be introducing you to the contributing photographers of yagazieemezi.com over the next couple of weeks. You will be seeing their work on here fairly often so this is an excellent way for you to get familiar with these talented folks.
My name is Tj Letsa and I’m a 25 year old photographer from Accra, Ghana. I picked up photography from a friend who showed me the basics of the art and I really enjoyed it. At first, I wanted to start a menswear blog, figuring that my sense of style would be an advantage. This was during the time when the menswear blog craze had hit the internet and I like many, wanted to bring this wave into Accra, Ghana.
"I have always had a creative side. Picking up a camera just helped me to express it more. I’m on a journey with my creative self to portray my heart. I believe in the art of photography and not the science of it. Photography should be a tool for which people would use to document the most memorable periods and stories and relive it by looking at each photo. African Brands should also use photography as a powerful reminder of their corporate entity and tell their own stories."

Dear Illinois Friends,
There is this thing-called Blue Bell Ice Cream. And some of you may not know it yet, but this stuff is really good and most of you will find it is the best ice cream you have ever tasted. And until two years ago…it was no where to be found in our lovely state. Luckily someone finally had the right idea and with the right business plan and motivation opened this amazing place. So all that being said. GO TO THE ORIGINAL PARLOR! Spread the word and then hopefully more of these will spread through out Illinois! I promise you won’t regret it! #bringbluebelltoillinois #theoriginalparlor (at The Original Parlor, Ice Cream Cafe and Store)
Birthdays. Farmers Markets. Tattoo Shops. Sunflowers. What a beautiful summer day. (at The Wadsworth Farmers Market)
