“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”

— Robert Frank

Adedayo "Dayo" Kosoko is a Nigerian-American photographer/videographer who takes the phrase, "a picture is worth a 1000 words" quit literally. Dayo combines his love for meeting people, photography and his commanding energy to creating modern, lifestyle portraits of people and places. His clients include ad agencies, magazines, publishing companies, celebrities, and non-profit organizations.

When he’s not writing about himself in the third person, Dayo enjoys spending time with his wife and newborn son. He also has made a career of hosting events as a master of ceremonies. This and positive attitude and creativity during shoots has earned him the name "Mr.Hype".

In his spare time, Dayo co-hosts a podcast for photographers and creatives alike called " Shooting With Shooters". Its an audio show about visuals that was created to connect and educate photographers through storytelling and critical thinking.  

Dayo has stayed true to thought that "collaboration is key to innovation. Creatives unite.
