The meeting with Centre Soleil d’Afrique has been very important to me because I had never participated to such a gathering before. On one hand, it enabled me to know many artists from different backgrounds (in terms of working methods).
On the other hand I was able to apprehend the differences between cultures, what gave me great experience and artistic knowledge, especially about the concept of artistic photography. In short, meeting Soleil d’Afrique has enabled me with a solid artistic base in photography.
I only can congratulate and be thankful to Centre Soleil d’Afrique as it continues to assist me in my endeavor. As long as they keep multiplying their workshops and meetings I will keep making the make the most of the knowledge and experience of the trainers and of the quality of the exchange with other artists.
My greatest satisfaction has been above all the self-confidence I gained, which made me start my own photo studio. This self-confidence came up after the workshop with Malick Sidibé and a photography teacher from Belgium, who was invited by Soleil d’Afrique on that occasion. This studio is my source of income today.
Soleil d’Afrique helps me even to solve my family problems through some advice and often some financial support. Thanks to this, I have my own studio, which is a source of income for my whole family. People hire our video services for their weddings, baptisms, feasts, etc.
