Meet 3 year old Nigerian photographer - Fuji Remet

I'm sharing this post for two reasons: One, to introduce Fuji to Nigerians so we can celebrate him and two, to discuss if it's OK for a 3 year old to already have a career. He has an exhibition coming up so yes, he has a career! CNN profiled the young budding photographer on Inside Africa yesterday and below is what they wrote about Lil Fuji... 
While most children his age in Nigeria - and the rest of the world - are more concerned with their toys than a career, Onafujiri "Fuji" Remet has already embarked on his mission to become a professional photographer.
Proud dad Pius Kugbere Remet sent in these images of his talented young son posing with family and at work in Lagos.
Himself an artist and graphic designer, he says Fuji's inspiration came from the work of his creative family.
Little Fuji even has an exhibition coming up in Lagos on June 8. Not bad for a three-year-old.
See more photos of Fuji at work after the cut...

Above are some of the photographs the 3 year old shot. Amazing really, but let's share our opinion on the issue I brought up. Should a three year old be more concerned about his toys or a career? You know what they say; catch them young, but how young is too young?

    3years is too young... Naa.. I dunno... For now , he should be concerned with his reading, Writing and literacy and numeracy skills development,These basis are critical aside any talent or gift.. And by the way, this 3year old cannot edit, brand the works, use photoshop cs 6 to make effects, charge d camera, change lenses etc.. I feel the father is just pushing him tho.... As a teacher.... I feel his critical reasoning skill should be number 1.. Get him to school to know how to read and speak...ok bye*

    He is a prodigy!
    He ain't too young at all! As far as his brain cells can accommodate his being this creative at such an early stage its ok, its a gift, gifts are bestowed on us subliminally, so he needs to be encouraged, he could become a stellar in the world of photography in the future.

    Linda for me he isn't too young. The Likes of Tiger Woods, Williams sisters and most of all the world class icons celebrated in civillized climes all started very young and believe me we have so many of fuji in Nigeria here so it will be a welcome development if things like this can be encouraged in our society plus he has a secured future for himself @ least he would be making something for himself and we all know the hardship an individual faces in our Nigeria of today so let's celebrate this young brain. I will also like you to dig up about a 12 or 12 year old boy who founded a social networking website at a very young age in Benue state or so. I read of him too sometimes ago

    It's his passion and as long as no one is forcing him to take pictures, then its perfectly fine. His parents are lucky their son has found a career path so naturally his schooling will be geared towards the arts, not like many of us who do courses in school just because that's where we were accepted/offered.

    Parents should nurture their children and discover their passion, that's a better legacy than training an engineer who has become a bank teller. Most of us do not even know what our passion is, we just carry on day to day collecting meagre salaries just to keep body and soul together. I know because i am one!

  • At 1 June 2013 at 12:17 , Blogger WJ Web Designer said...

    Ooooooh my goodness! I cant believe my eyes. Though not so surprise as to what he does, but considering his age I am dumbfounded. I am quite sure he his going places, believe you me.

    To start with, these days, children don't know any other anything except to play around, watch cartoons and go to bed. I think it is now more important to pay attention what they love and the things they are exposed to. If you are a parent and all you could do to help your kids is to play DORA cartoon for them, thinking you need to satisfy their curiosity, you will be blamed for it when the children get to a stage of low IQ.

    I could remember I started building website, at a very tender age, using free webhosting and I grew to build professional website, even develop website for different organizations, popular personality, high caliber of people and even international clients I have never seen with my eyes. You could imagine where I would have been if my parent exposed me to graphics toys and designing children tools. What I noticed about this AMAZING BOY is the fact that he was brought up in an environment that deals with designing and, voilà, here he his with professional camera taken a professional picture. Mind you, the camera that he uses, a photographer will never give me or you as an adult to help to take pictures, even in his studio...

    Why...

    Because he involves focusing, which you need to calculate based on the intensity of the light or darkness. Many will say afterall, we all snap with digital camera. Forget it, this boy does not use the camera we all see along the road at pencinema agege.

    I raise my HAT for his GUT. He deserves a trip to the land of te best resort in the world.

    Tiger woods was a golf pro at 3. Some talents are inbred and the child will follow that passion which should be nurtured as long as he has a well rounded childhood and doesnt miss out on any opportunities to experience his life as it evolves. We should celebrate it

     
  • At 1 June 2013 at 12:20 , Blogger Ekene4real said...

    Never too young Linda. But it would not be right if his love for the camera affects his education. As long as he's in school, its just fine for me. It tells a lot about the kind of toys parents buy for their kids. Some parents prefer to buy guns, power rangers, batman, et al. Am not saying those aint good, but toys like helicopters, aeroplane, cameras, piano, et al are better options. I've always said I'd love my first daughter to play the guitar. Sometimes, it just guides them to find their passion.

    Well, I believe lil fuji has something interesting to offer here being a lover of good photography but indeed, I think he needs (still needs) some breeding, wht possibly cud he knw going by the level and rate of creativity photography has come to exhibit. Fuji needs training, but he's not too young. And yes, his parents should pls not push him too far, and also not let the passion (since its a passion here) dwindle

    If this is his passion and not the doing of over-zealous parents then I say go for it little Fuji. Some Africans rarely encourage their children to follow up on their talents. Most kids who can draw or paint rarely have colouring material at home. Parents, learn to nurture your kids talents. Not everyone is solely meant to be a doctor or lawyer.

    This!!!

    I'm quite impressed with what I've seen here. But as a photographer, I doubt if I've seen enough to call him a photographer.
    We clearly see his passion & budding talent. . .and I feel it's totally ok to let him to play around with the camera in place of his toys; while they let him concentrate in school and explore more areas of photography and build on himself.

    IMO, he's not too young.
    Great stuff. :)

    Time Reversal... the effect? When he is older, he will behave like a child because of the fact that he wasnt given the chance to be a child when he should. Everything has time. Too much too soon isnt good for the development of a child.

    God is the giver of talent. The pictures are nice its obvious the kid is good at what he does. But lets not forget a three year old is nothing but a kid. The parents must allow him be a kid and not let him grow too fast just cause he can snap at a tender age. Let the children play cause play is what kids are made of and made for. Micheal jackson and his never never land comes to mind cause his childhood was stolen just because he could dance at a tender age.

    Make-Up by Teju Tobun, It was never said he was not going to go to school or lack critical thinking skills.

    I think of-course not too much emphasis is given to the boy having a career in this and should be recognized that he has a talent and no matter what should be nurtured.

    My thing is as long as his child hood is not sacrificed for his career I think he should be fine, we all know how most child star end up when de miss their childhood eg michael jackson, lindsay lohan, britney spears etc. When a kid misses his childhood its like cutting out a part of his life which will later tell in his life. Personally I think he should continue with his career but it should be toned down and he should be allowed to grow like every other 3year old, even in playing with other kids the brain develops and build a social interaction and experience that will be useful later in future

My only concern is exploitation; as long as both Parents aren't taking advantage of the kid to draw publicity to themselves - then heck yeah! They should show the kid off to the world. The talents of a genius should never been hidden.

    If you have the talent, flaunt it, share it with the world. It's never too early. 5 yrs from now his passions may change, at least he made his mark and shared something with us all...Instead of riding his bicycle as "fun" or an activity, he's taking pictures...haven't you seen the child singers, piano player, painter, etc as long as the parents aren't forcing them to do it and making him work 24hrs a day...let it be.

    Very young, I also mixed up chemicals, opened up electronic devices, played the doctor and all. Today I'm not scientist nor technician. What is this child's talent? That he can randomly press the camera trigger, then lets his dad select from the lot. I bet if I give an 11 months old baby a camera to play with, I will get publishable photographs!

    Yes. Well said. The lil man should be encouraged but shld also have an education to give him a greater edge in life. Education isnt just for jobs,its to broaden the mind. Parents should pay attention to thier children's flare at thier tender ages that way we'll have more inventors nd less stereotypes. Im quite impressed.

    Linda, this baby is freaking to young for what he's doing. It is not yet the time. He should first of all be a child and do the things children are known for. Some people in the forum are calling him a young man already. Are you freaking kidding me? He's barely a baby for crying out loud. The parents can get him a camera to play with, that I agree with, but to make him develop a career out of that to the extent of having an exhibition, is totally, totally wrong. His teeth aint even developed enough. He's still wearing a diaper and I can bet, he cannot bath himself at this age. All I see is nothing but very very greedy father and mother, who are depriving this baby the opportunity to be a kid.

    It is wrong, wrong and very very wrong, no matter the way you may look at it. Let a kid be kid!

    No, not at all well said. He's 3 yrs old for pete's sake. He's not even able to properly construct a sentence not to talk of deciphering the techniques of photography. He may be attracted to beauty, colours etc like most kids and if his parents think he's creative, they should allow him to use drawing & painting as an outlet instead of shoving a camera that weighs more than him in his face.

    Personally I see no talent here all I see is a kid playing with an advanced toy due to exposure by his parent, does not require much to click on a camera button if it was painting, drawing or a genius kid I would call that talent. He would most likely grow out of it with time when he his exposed to other stuffs in life. I just hope his parent gives him the chance to feel other things. I feel the parent are forcing their dreams on the kid for crying out loud his only three, probably can't tie his own shoes by his self

    Instead of being small-minded, can you for once try to understand the simple principle of "vision, dedication and hardwork pays". This is in the psyche of every Igbo person and as long as you don't start thinking in these lines, you'll continue to show your inferiority complex next to Igbos. Insult me if you like but you know I'm stating a fact. Afterall it is well known that Nigerians have been suffering from Igbophobia (the fear of Igbo success) since the 50's. Leave Linda, Bonario and Prince Charming alone!

    Any positive step and motive should always be encouraged. So what if he is 3? I'll say it's a very bright step for a society that is viewed with contempt outside it's shores. As long as it's based on his interest and his parents are helping him grow according to his age and they are also balancing all of his abilities with regards to his without pushing him at all. Kudos to such development!

    Not too young to start honing his skills.. catch them young is correct. I'm sure his parents know not to let his education and personal development suffer, in spite of his obvious talent. The photos of him are so cute, Also I expect his subjects can't be that much taller than him, so he can get them in frame, his name even sounds like that of a little star (Fuji Remet). Bless his little cotton socks:)
