Keith Sherwin , November 25, 2005; 09:51 P.M.

Beautiful colours in your shots - beginner??? I wish my 'beginning' shots were as good as this. Your folio reminds me of Yuri Bonder - check him out! best regards

Yinka. I have no idea why you don't have a much higher rating overall. You have fantastic photos. You especially have an eye for good composition. All the Best.

Will King , December 01, 2005; 10:51 A.M.

The borders really do a great job making the pictures stand out. I haven't taken the time to learn to do it. If you got some tips please drop me a line.

Dana Tan , December 13, 2005; 11:11 P.M.

Thank you!

There is an old saying: "Still waters run deep." This is definitely true about the spirit of you that is evident in your photos. Thank you for such a beautiful gift.

Lucas Oldhoff , December 14, 2005; 06:25 A.M.

I like your photos Yinka! I'm new at this art form myself and can't believe how good your photos are after only one year! I have a thing or two to learn, me thinks. Congratulations!

Colors,Darkness and Sharp!! Love your work a lot.

John Harper , January 07, 2006; 05:35 P.M.

You say you are interested in color but you also have a very good eye for composition. That combination has allowed you to make some amazingly beautiful photographs. I see some familiar (to me) locations in some of your photos: Voorhees and maybe Ringwood NJ?

nikolai jerabek , January 08, 2006; 11:23 P.M.

very substantial

you got a great portfolio; took me a long time to explore, but definitely worth it; I'll shure check back; best regards nj

You have a very beautiful portfolio here, not hard to see you have a great eye for nature shots, your landscape shots are outstanding.Keep up the good work....Cheers from Australia

Lorenza F , January 19, 2006; 07:54 A.M.

Yinka, please do not misuse words: I AM A BEGINNER and, believe me, I would really, really like to have a portfolio such as yours in one year time.

I would like to know how you managed to put toghether such a number of beautiful pics having a challenging job such as yours. Obviously, to get the results you have to work hard, so you must have found a way to have enough time to learn so much so quickly.

I would also like to see some of your early shots: are there any in your portfolio?

I am happy to have been here, I really enjoyed your photos. Bye, Lorenza

Yinka Oyelese , January 19, 2006; 12:41 P.M.

Early shots

Thanks a million! I am very honored. There are no earlier shots. These are the "earlier shots" The sunflowers and balloons as well as the mountains were taken earlier this year. And thats it.

Best wishes


Martin Kastner , January 21, 2006; 10:34 A.M.


...now it is more than an hour ago that i came to your portfolio. that never happened to me that i was 'stuck' for such a long time on one persons page.... i just can't discribe in words what i' ve just seen here. this is sooo outstanding amazing...

Yinka Oyelese , January 21, 2006; 10:35 A.M.

Thanks Martin

Thanks for your kind comments.


James Baeza , January 25, 2006; 03:07 A.M.

YINKA. I appreciate you taking the time to comment on one of my photos. I think I am starting to develope a style that compliments your own. We should be in touch. It is interesting how you wake before dawn to greet the sun and I rush to capture its departure. I think your work is beautiful and peaceful. Cheers.

Wade Rose , January 28, 2006; 11:46 P.M.

hi yinka

i like your portfolio very much. the landscapes and the colours are great. regards andrea

Paul Chepikian , February 22, 2006; 07:34 A.M.

Yinka: I have to make it a point to come back and view your work more closely. What i've seen so far is just amazing. And I read that you've only been shooting for one year, that is also amazing. You have a gift and what is wonderful is that you are being prolific. Keep shooting, keep sharing. I shall look forward to putting some time aside and coming back often. Great work, you should be very proud. P.S. I'm noticing you've shot many photographs in New Jersey, my old hometown. You do it justice!

Lorenza F , February 25, 2006; 04:25 P.M.

Hello Yinka! I came back after a few weeks to find a lot of new photos, very different from the previous ones but as good as all your portfolio. I loved them all. And congratulations for your wonderful sons, they deserve your pride!!! Cheers, Lorenza

Rob Wray , February 26, 2006; 10:16 A.M.

Dear Yinka

Nope you are far from a beginner. You have one of the most natural talents in capturing pictures. These are so vibrant in colour and their composition is perfect. I wish I had a blank canvas and could start again, get rid of years of misconception and grandeur and see again. You have a very natural talent, something you can call original. Keep up the great work. Kind regards Rob.

Acushla Seven , February 26, 2006; 09:00 P.M.

Magical ...

Peter ... Yinka your photos are simply amazing - so so beautiful and truly outstanding. I am spellbound in a magical way... EXCELLENT ! from a very old real-life friend xx

focus mankind , March 17, 2006; 07:33 A.M.

a great portfolio - congrats! I personally prefered some of the shots with less pushed colors - there are some shots, which are outstanding - so IMO-there's no need to push them that much. That said, does not mean too much - some shot are great having this vivid colors. congrats once again - focus

Robert Coney , March 18, 2006; 09:11 P.M.

Color is ice cream.... Very tasty.

baogiang tran , March 20, 2006; 06:25 A.M.

Pete V , May 14, 2006; 02:53 P.M.


Your photographs are amazing. I have to say, you are rapidly becoming my favorite photographer on this site. If I could have half your grasp of color, I'd be ecstatic with myself. And you've only been doing this for about a year - that's the most amazing part! I'm going to keep an eye out for more of your work, and hey, if you can, I'd absolutely love to hear what you think about my photos. I want to have your skills in the next year :P

Great job on your fine portfolio and skill, my friend. Cheers!

Antonio Zanghi , May 15, 2006; 02:52 A.M.

Emmanuel Enyinwa , May 29, 2006; 12:26 A.M.


Allow me to congratulate you my friend. The quality of your work is in no way compromised by the sheer quantity of your output. I am amazed that you can achieve such refined work in such a short time. My own work represents the sum total of 20 years of an on-again, off-again obsession. But, to achieve what you have so quickly is simply amazing. Good luck, my friend, not that you need it. Emmanuel.

Zoran Kostic , June 01, 2006; 01:30 P.M.

Excellent gallery! Great work Yinka. Cheers! Zoran

D. Munteanu , July 30, 2006; 06:31 P.M.

soon one thousand? :)

They just don't end, do they? Maybe you should contact Canon and ask for some free L glass, considering the amount and quality of works you've done with their rebel dSLR. :)

James Honiss , August 17, 2006; 10:02 A.M.

Too Much Stuff!

You have some great things. But you do not need to show every picture you have ever taken. Be selective and include only your best.

Chris Womack , August 18, 2006; 12:09 P.M.

" WOW "

What a fabulous display of "everything" !!! - the tulips, seascapes, etc. etc. etc. Keep up the good work ! Chris Womack

Robert Semnic , August 21, 2006; 04:45 A.M.

some filtering would create more effective portfolio

Nora DeBoard , August 24, 2006; 12:42 A.M.


I'm actually at a loss for words. I have only been doing photography since HS and I'm still learning. There is so much out there to be photographed. I stumbled on your gallary while making a critique on one of your photos. I am dumbfounded by your work. The thing that draws me in the most is your NATURAL talent and your eye for photography. Such vivid colors throughout your gallary. It is definately NOT boring! Such raw talent. Some of the best talent, work and art I've seen yet. Looking forward to more!!! Hope you stop off and see my portfolio. Not as good as yours of course. Will be able to do better when I get rid of my Sony Mavica...2MP. AAAArgh! Want to get a Cannon ;-)

Chris Stachura , August 27, 2006; 10:15 A.M.

you have very interesting style, thousand photos to admire, thanks for sharing!

Ken Simm , September 03, 2006; 11:35 A.M.

You are quite correct Yinka, you are a natural colourist. You also have a painters eye. If I need to nitpick, (and it is only through jelousy), I do agree with some commentators less is more sometimes. Regards Ken.

Matteo De Angeli , September 07, 2006; 05:50 A.M.


Hi Yinka! Your Portfolio is incredible! Colours and subjects are very beautifull. I read in yuor Biography that you use HDR images. Could you send me a mail telling me something more about this tecnique? Thank you very much for your attention. Matteo

Jade Nguyen , September 13, 2006; 12:36 A.M.

Bravo !!!

Very very very good good !!!! some are good composition ,most are actractive colour ,good lighting, it will take a lots of time to see all of them in detail .congratulation Yinka.

Yinka, I enjoyed your portfolio. You do some nice work with HDR.

David Branch , September 22, 2006; 11:08 P.M.

Outstanding! Your subject matter is consistently alive and beautiful, which makes me smile. Your work with light and coloring is outstanding. Thank you also for sharing your personal photographs which brings a personal touch to your portfolio. I look forward to seeing more of your excellent work.

Senz Anjosef , September 23, 2006; 01:12 P.M.

So inspiring....

For the past year I have been coming to this website to learn from all the helpful forums.

Sometimes a photo catches my eye and I check out a photo or two, but mostly it has been for the purpose of learning.

Today I saw a photo which I thought was mine. It was your Coal Harbour photo of Vancouver. Whu?!! I started searching your portfolio to see what else you have.

I was moved to tears several times Yinka.

You have an extra-ordinary talent and it was a great pleasure to experience your visions.

Thank-you so much for your efforts, you are by far one of the best photographers on this site, possibly not technically, but by natural graces alone.

I can't wait until you get some L-series glass.

I agree with one criticism some fella made: filtering through your photos will give single photos more impact instead of having similiar scenes repeated. I couldn't possibly criticize anything else though, your beginning efforts are truly incredible and your strengths as a visual artist is more than obvious!!

thanks for the soul food Yinka, you are a blessing to photography.

Yinka Oyelese , September 26, 2006; 01:31 P.M.


Dear Senz, David, Doug, July, Popeye, Giangiorgio, Matteo, Jade, Michael, and everyone else

Thanks for all your very kind comments. I am glad that my photos have been a blessing. Your kind words inspire me to improve and do even better. Peace Yinka

Stuart Apsey , September 28, 2006; 11:11 A.M.

great stuff

You say you are realatively new to photography but you have shots that will rival many pros. I see a mix of styles as you try certain techniques in shooting and post processing. I would like to see what comes out when you hone in in one particular style and really develop it to be your solid signiture. I will be back to see that most definately. Thanks for you comment on a photo of mine I am glad I popped in for a visit.

Kah Kit Yoong , September 29, 2006; 03:43 A.M.

Probably the most colourful portfolio on PN I think. Great diversity too Yinka. You have a great eye and talent for photography. I prefer the less obviously manipulated photos, but that's just me. You're definitely someone I will have to watch. Keep up the good work.

Tomaso Nigris , September 30, 2006; 04:58 A.M.

I like your portfolio. Varied , good compo, excellent ps work, nice colors, very interesting angle view. Congr.

Kayla Kirkland , October 02, 2006; 01:39 A.M.

there are no words...

Claire Gray , October 03, 2006; 08:09 A.M.

Wonderful work

Wonderful and diverse portfolio. Love the less tampered with images and the colours are exceptionally eye-catching. My only remark (and I do hope this does not offend) is that your single photo folder needs splitting into smaller folders. This would mean it is easier to view your varied work and it would take less time to load the single folder with so many images.

Keeps shooting,



mohamad itani , October 05, 2006; 11:14 P.M.

My friend Yinka

its always a pleasure to come back here and enjoy your colourful pearls keep up the good work and keep inspiring us :)

Matt T. , October 06, 2006; 07:33 P.M.

How do you get the time for all these shots? lol Such beautiful images that please my eyes and mind.

Sam Bal , October 10, 2006; 12:07 A.M.

A very luminous portfolio! Congratulations, Sam.

Hung Nguyen , October 15, 2006; 12:45 A.M.

Beautiful portfolio, Yinka. I agree with Claire Gray about partitioning you photographs into folders so that we can repeatedly come and visit. Cheers, Hung Nguyen

Sarah Martin , October 17, 2006; 12:51 A.M.

Your HDR work is inspiring! Great portfolio...the most inspiring on PN.

Yinka, I live in South Jersey. You are a very good photographer! Cheers!

Harry Cutts , October 25, 2006; 11:27 A.M.


do not describe the diverse beauty that you have captured in your images, I am humbled and honoured to have seen your work., I also read your intro about yourself, I think that your profession is one of the most needed in medicine, having lost both a child and a wife to pre eclampsia a few years ago. Keep up the good work. Harry

Raphael Lopez , October 25, 2006; 09:10 P.M.


The kind of photographic skills that is found here can only be said about a selective few. The architecture and glamour images are amazing. I value and respect the artistic vision that you have demonstrated with these images. Congratulations

Jim Downs , October 28, 2006; 09:49 P.M.

Mammoth portfolio and I like nearly all of it. I am curious as to the location of your ancestoral homeland and haven't been able to figure it out by browsing your portfolio. But, maybe that's the way you want it!

Juan Santana , November 05, 2006; 08:49 P.M.

Awesome work.

Very colorful and inspirational, have a lot to learn from you Just love it.


Jim Tew , November 06, 2006; 08:47 P.M.

Dear Yinka...

It's amazing the way you treat the photographs to create such an atmosphere in them. You are great artist and an inspiration for many persons who are still learning this beautiful art of taking pictures....Congrats to you and to them for the wonderful body of work that you have presented here. I look forward to seeing more. Thanks...

Janet Harper , November 12, 2006; 01:42 A.M.

Best Wishes, Rick

Sarah Kane , November 22, 2006; 04:31 P.M.

Wow, I thought I'd take a quick gander and ended up staying a lot longer. You have some truly beautiful photos, my favourites would be the 'Dawn' series, and the top photo for me is 'First Light' You have an eye for photography, keep it up, I'd love to see more Yinka!

Amazing work!

WOW!! Over a thousand photos and they are all so rich and colorful. You are a master of the trade. Thanks for sharing your work I will have to come back from time to time so I can learn a few things.

Kyle Shortes , January 04, 2007; 08:35 A.M.


AMAZING! It has been a while since I looked at your portfolio, so I decided to stop by and visit, and nwo I decided to update my comment. Your work is fantastic! An HDR Master with a brilliant and creative eye! Im very very impressed and inspired by your work! Never put your camera down!


David Morgan , January 05, 2007; 06:41 A.M.


I Yinka,

I came into your portfolio having critiqued one of your photos. I am stunned. Your shots are awe inspiring to someone like me. I wish my early shots were of the same quality as yours. I am particularly interested in your HDR work as this is a technique that I had not seen before until I came across Photo.net!

Congratulations on a fantastic portfolio!

David Morgan

Chris Heyward , January 10, 2007; 05:16 P.M.

breath taking gallery. im very inspired to try this hdr technique regards Chris

Carl Wakefield , January 11, 2007; 12:10 A.M.

Super portfolio

Hello Yinka Your protfolio is wonderfull you have many many fantastic shots. Your pictures are full of so much colour this is really spectacular. I found the bugs. the pictures of London the seascapes, well all of so good. I spend some time enjoying your pictures. Thanks and best regards Carl

Erik Adams , January 11, 2007; 07:08 P.M.

Let me just add to the numerous others in saying that I have enjoyed your portfolio. Excellent variety, extremely prolific, and a great eye for color. The tones on the Jersey shore are magical. All this and high-risk OB? Nice work.

Mandar Kulkarni , January 13, 2007; 12:11 A.M.

woaaaaahh!! amazing work.. very professional and very colorful!! it's very inspiring!

Gergely J , January 17, 2007; 04:07 P.M.

Salih Saydam , January 23, 2007; 04:19 P.M.



Tyler Wind , January 24, 2007; 02:21 P.M.

Dr. Oyelese--I have seen many of your pictures on the critique forum and think I've comment on one or two here or there but until today have not visited your portfolio and personal page. I had spent a lot of time studying several of your autumn shots with reflections in the water before I went up to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a shooting trip. Like yourself, I, too, am a physician. I went to medical school at UVA and am now an orthopaedic surgery resident at MUSC in Charleston, SC. After looking through your portfolio, I see that we have much more in common than our primary profession--we also both like color and enjoy shooting waterfront scenes. I have to run along to the operating room now but I wanted to leave you a quick comment. Your portfolio is nothing short of amazing--the colors, compositions, exposures--everything is great! I will be back to leave some specific comments and check your portfolio for updates and I hope you'll do the same for me! It's good to meet another doctor with the same hobby--especially another Christian physician! Take care!

Dennis Aubrey , January 24, 2007; 05:01 P.M.

Am so ashamed ...

... have commented on many of your individual shots but never on the portfolio! This is one of the most enriching spots on PN and I come here so often to see what you are doing. You are a natural and in your hands the camera actually sings. Thank you so much.

Tony Hadley , January 25, 2007; 03:07 P.M.


What a prodigious and beautiful portfolio. Congrats.

Justin Johnson , January 25, 2007; 03:44 P.M.



I love your "seascapes"!!! It will take me a while to venture through your portfolio but from what I can see so far it will be well worth the time! I hope to one day have the chance to make it to the ocean again and photograph the beautiful sunsets as you have. I will visit again soon as you have a new fan! And thank you by the way for stopping by and looking over my photos!!

My best, Justin

Beau Hooker , January 28, 2007; 03:33 P.M.

Blown Away!

Dear Yinka,

I really am speechless after looking at your work... Although I must confess it makes me want to throw my camera out the window! ;-) You have an amazing eye that's second only to your taste in music!

I see you're a Zawinul fan too (among other greats)... I recall the first time I heard Weather Report's "Heavy Weather" circa 1977 (I think I'd just turned 18) and being (somewhat of a) drummer, feeling much like I do now after looking at your work... Time to throw my sticks out the window! ;-)

At the time, I fell in love with the Jaco Pastorius tune "Teen Town" on which he plays both drums and bass. It's so tragic what happened to Jaco.

My nephew, who lives in London, has taken up the torch so to speak and is an excellent jazz guitarist who I'm sure would appreciate not only your photographs but your musical inclinations as well.

At any rate, you sir, are in a word, brilliant. Thank you for your comments; I'm truly humbled and perhaps I should hang on to the camera after all in the hopes of some day coming close to keeping up with you!

I hope your Alien Bees work out well for you! (Looks like they might have judging by your self portraits - also excellent!)

Now give me about 10 years to catch up! ;-)

Best Wishes . . . beau :)

Jason Williams , February 08, 2007; 10:41 P.M.

Wow Yinka, incredible, one of the most refreshing and colorful portfolios I have seen in a while, absolutely awesome! I will definitely be back, overwhelmingly beautiful collection of photos!

Dennis Jones , February 13, 2007; 08:43 P.M.


How in the world have I missed seeing your work???? By far, one of the best 'folios on this site. Awesome skills.....

Pete White , February 14, 2007; 01:23 P.M.

I have no socks left - all blown away by your marvellous images!


William Gerber , February 17, 2007; 10:10 P.M.


You have a elegantly beautiful portfolio I love the way you use colors in your Images, I hope that one day I can learn to use photoshop with color using this technique, your are a master, thank you for letting me see, God Speed, Cheers William

Tony Casu , February 18, 2007; 12:09 A.M.

I am glad to have stumbled upon your portfolio tonight. It should be fitting that it is also the night that I was watching the movie Frida. So I guess tonight is all about colours. Your photographs are beautiful, you have a gift to allow us to see things in a different light. Where many might have walked by with little inpiration , you managed to find some beauty. Thank you for such nice work.

Cheers, Tony

Deborah Rose , February 19, 2007; 10:10 P.M.

Your portfolio is full of beautiful, colorful images. I love it!

Daniel Ewert , February 23, 2007; 10:25 P.M.

Wonderful portfolio. Your photos are stunning and inspirational. I especially enjoy your seascapes - so full of drama and color. Thanks for sharing your passion with the rest of us.

Mike Ferris - Omaha, NE , February 25, 2007; 02:08 A.M.

Oh wow!! Superb!! amy

John Sigman , March 22, 2007; 04:51 P.M.

This just goes on and on. It must be a full time job just to upload all those photos. I don't think I've seen so many self portraits in any other portfolio. I counted over 100!!

Alec Ee , March 29, 2007; 01:02 A.M.

Some great stuff here Yinka but you got to watch out for the 'halos' in many of your images. e.g. personal photos and Jersey Shore folders. Perhaps you used too much shadow and highlights. Still - a lovely collection.

Ludvik Leben , March 31, 2007; 09:43 A.M.

Absolutely amazing portfolio, full of colours and life. I also liked reading your biography. Congratulations and best regards!

James Oluoch-Olunya , April 07, 2007; 08:18 P.M.

Very strong portfolio indeed! Keep up the excellent work!

Paul Louis Villani , April 08, 2007; 10:05 P.M.

A beautiful portfolio! Yinka, you do all your subjects the greatest justice by capturing them so well! You are a true artist and i love your work!

Dimf van Bladel , April 09, 2007; 05:55 P.M.

Yinka i am amazed and marvelled. So many brilliant pictures. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

Kenrick Rampial , April 09, 2007; 06:20 P.M.

Hello Yinka. Your photographs are an inspiration and truly reflect the presence of God in your life. I love the colours and the richness of the images. I am also a christian and am currently pursuing a diploma in ministry. I admire how you've used your gifts and talents to accomplish so much and with such excellence and perfection. I am very encouraged by you. May God continue to bless you and your family in a very special way.

Emmanuel Enyinwa , April 14, 2007; 11:40 P.M.


Came back again today because I saw your self portrait up for critique. IMO, your landscapes are your real strength, but I love your dogged determination to master the portrait genre. Your portfolio has grown so much since I last came here, and the quality has continued to improve. You have that zest for life, that indefatigable Nigeria spirit, that same spirit that drives the molue attendant and the little girl chasing a car on the overpass at Ojo Elegba to sell a pack of pure water for 100 Naira. Yes, I know you understand because your work, your energy, your dedication, speaks of someone who has been there.

Correy Crawford , April 15, 2007; 01:58 A.M.

I read a bit

in your biography, but just enough to catch that your a Christian! I too walk along with Jesus. I'm going through a point in my life where I'm trying to listen to what God wants me to do in life. And skateboarding has been a prominant lifestyle and continues to be for about 4 years now......but, ever since I asked him to show me what he wanted to do in life here on earth, I've taken a sudden, unexpected, and totally random interest in photography.......so maybe it isn't all that random after all. Well, it's nice to know theres other Christian photographers here! Correy.

Leon Forado , April 15, 2007; 02:32 P.M.

Congratulation for your portfolio is very nice with top quality. Specially the London pictures. Best Regards

Mike Matcho , April 16, 2007; 06:39 P.M.

Huge Collection of Excellent Work

Ansel Adams once said, "Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop." You are an overachiever.

Jeff Germo , April 16, 2007; 07:41 P.M.

reflects the glory of God

you have an outstanding portfolio, Yinka. It truly does reflect the glory of our Creator. I am a fellow brother in the Lord. I pastor a church in Vancouver. Keep on doing what you are doing. You are blessing a lot of people. Jeff

Jeff Germo , April 16, 2007; 08:31 P.M.

By all means, look me up when you are in Vancouver next time.

Hello Yinka

I have been watching your portfolio for some time now. I remember when your folder only had mostly landscapes, which are awsome by the way, but I love your determination to become better with your portraits. As you continue to grow with your portraits, I can almost feel your passion to get the very best. You are succeeding in many ways. Your lighting is becoming so much better. I noticed that you pay attention and compliment the features of your models. Yinka I have been new to all this portrait work myself. I have discovered there is no right or wrong way. Have fun in experimenting, you truely are talented.

Rachel Barker , June 10, 2007; 01:28 A.M.

Hey, thanks so much for stopping by my folio! It's so extensive and full of excellence. I love your work . . . your landscapes and flora work is just beautiful.

Ade Olumide , July 18, 2007; 10:42 A.M.

Awesome Work !!


Hello. As far as introductions go, I'm a software developer at a financial brokerage firm here in Maryland by trade, and only recently picked up digital photography as a hobby late last year.

I recently came across a featured article of your work in the July/August 2007 edition of PCPhoto magazine, and was so intrigued by your article images, that I decided to check out your portfolio.

I'm glad I did.

Allow me to express my pride (as a fellow Nigerian) at your work. I consider myself an amateur photographer, but I'm passionate about photography. I'd appreciate any pointers and tips you care to share as I build up my photography skills.

Please keep shooting and sharing you images, and all the best.

God bless,

-Ade Olumide-

Goran Anastasovski , July 26, 2007; 08:01 A.M.

Perfect. No coment

Dylan Luis , July 27, 2007; 10:12 A.M.

Hats off to you Yinka!! You have such an impressive portfolio, and i must say that each and every image from this huge collection is well crafted. Keep up the good work.
Regards - Dylan.

OLA OGUNS , July 29, 2007; 08:54 A.M.

Great Pictures

Your pictures are very great. What kind of camera do you use? I'm thinking about buying an advanced camera but being a beginner I'm not sure which to get. Please advice.

Alexandre DESCHAUMES , August 08, 2007; 06:21 A.M.

Sharon W , August 11, 2007; 01:14 A.M.

Your portfolio

Yinka, I am amazed at your tremendous talent. Yinka, would you please tell me what lense you use for most of those wonderful photographs. I, too, have a Canon XT and I am thrilled to see what can be done with it. Also, I think a tripod and tripod head are very important.

What a blessing to hear that you are a Christian and that you have such an interest in sharing that aspect of your life. Thank you for that.

Your wife and family are beautiful.

I have the Canon tilt/shift lenses and have found that the glass is so wonderful in them, that I use these lenses quite a bit just because of the glass.

Thank you for your help with the lenses that you use.

Sharon Welker

Yinka Oyelese , August 11, 2007; 09:26 A.M.

Thanks everyone, for the very lovely comments.

Sharon, my main lens for the wide-angles is the Sigma 10-20. For portraits I use a Canon 100 2.8 macro and a 50mm 1.4.

Thanks and I loved your portfolio

Best wishes


Josh Schutz , August 11, 2007; 11:12 A.M.


i have been keeping an eye on your work for the last year, and i love how you and your style have progressed. you are becoming a fine photographer. keep it up.

Henri Manguy , August 11, 2007; 01:46 P.M.

This is one of the most varied, complete, interesting and beautiful portfolio I have seen on photo.net. As a lover of landscapes I appreciate particularly your landscape photos and I can see that you are also a great lover of this kind.

Best regards,Henri

h d , August 19, 2007; 10:08 P.M.


Yinka, I love yur stuff. Looks like you get around a bit too - cross some borders, like. There are no bounds that matter, the point is to end up with a beautiful image. I was hoping to use some small corners of some of your images in a product I am developing - not full images, but samples, really. I'd like to run the project by you and see what you think. Best - Henry from Boston twospoonsphoto@email.com thx

Andrew Daspin , September 03, 2007; 12:04 A.M.

Yinka: In January 2006 I became fascinated with digital photography. A year later, in January 2007, while surfing the internet, I somehow came upon your PDN portfolio; and I was extremely impressed. Your photos show a tremendous talent combined with great technical expertise. And not only are your photos beautiful individually, but your portfolio as a whole is very impressive because it covers a great diversity of subject matter, and shows an extraordinary wealth of work. Your dedication to photography is truly outstanding, and is matched by your incredible skill and talent. What makes your portfolio even MORE amazing is the brief time that you have accomplished this in! It was from your portfolio that I linked to the PDN mainpage, and discovered a whole new world. I quickly became fascinated with PDN, and I soon became a member. My humble portfolio now has 410 photos and is steadily growing. I am always happy to see a new comment at my portfolio, and on August 17th I was surprised and thrilled to see that you had left a comment! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, not only for your comment, but also for the great inspiration that you have been not only to me, but to many others as well. In closing, I just wanted to let you know that I have recently organized my portfolio into 26 separate folders. Previously, when you saw it, it was just one big uncategorized collage. I have been told that my portfolio is now much easier to scroll through and "digest". If you have a chance, please visit again, and let me know what you think of the new organization. Any comment by someone of your stature would be greatly valued. Thanks again....Andrew Daspin

Jim Baker , September 03, 2007; 04:26 P.M.


yinka... very impressive portfolio capturing nature in an awesome way. i love the vivid colors you capture. the landscapes are my fav! keep at it.

cheers jim baker

Terry Gilroy , September 03, 2007; 04:56 P.M.

A totally stunning portfolio, the land and sea scapes are brilliant, full marks for being there in the right light and at the right time. They are full of colour and you are also not afraid to be creative and experiment on the computer. Greetings from Scotland

Andrew Daspin , September 07, 2007; 12:02 A.M.

Yinka: Yes, I live with my wife in northern N.J., in Morris County, about 40 minutes from Manhattan. Nice hearing from you.... Andy Daspin

Carlos Guaimare , September 09, 2007; 11:07 P.M.

Well done Yinka!

Your portfolio is really impressive. Your landscapes seem to come from a dream

John Mathieson , September 09, 2007; 11:25 P.M.

In a word, WOW. What a truly massive portfolio, with such a huge variety. But, even with such a large range and volume of work, you seem to have a real personal style, hard to describe, but how impressive! I will have to come back many times to even come close appreciating your work. You are obviously passionate and talented. All the best John Victoria BC

Terry Mah , September 10, 2007; 02:24 A.M.


Wow! I am surprised that Canon or Sigma or Adobe aren't trying to showcase your talent and work and give you publicity and mountains of free gear. < not that you need either of those obviously! >

Your heart has a connection to a higher power Yinka - and it flows right through into your work! Your portfolio is absolutely beyond compare! A treat to view it - thank you.

David Seltzer , September 14, 2007; 09:09 P.M.

Oh, my!

At first I thought I can't comment on work so mind-blowingly skillful, artful, inspired and just plain wonderful. But then, I thought I couldn't leave here without letting you know how humbled and inspired I am.

Shea Riggenbach , September 30, 2007; 06:46 P.M.

Hello Friend!

Well here it is another year is passing away and we are coming into the holidays. I think time starts to go faster as we get older, it was just yesterday I wished my friends Happy Holidays and here it is again the end of a year. The holiday lights are starting to be put on some of the trees here in Dallas, we were out last night and some were lighting the trees. I wish for you all a holiday season with family and friends, after all is said and done all we have is each other.

I want all of you to know just what your comments and ratings on my work means to me, your words are my motivation, my drive to discover, to learn this art that we all love, thank you for taking time and thank you for caring about my works. At the same time thank you for letting us see your world, our lives are so much the same, we all care about our families and friends and we all share the same things, maybe someday our photos will help make for a lasting world peace. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting


anonymous one , November 24, 2007; 04:38 P.M.

Hi Yinka, I don't know if this will bother you but I thought you should know that I've found a blogger's website that has both an image of yours and a link to your photo.net portfolio. The only reason I'm letting you know is because one of my photos is also there along with a link to my folio but nobody asked me for permission. After looking through your photos, I understand why he added them to his website.



Andrew Campbell , December 16, 2007; 08:30 P.M.

All the best for the holiday season, from my family to yours.


Greg Cope , December 26, 2007; 06:05 P.M.

Excellent portfolio. Incredibly diverse and beautiful work, showing your talent all across the range of photography. Keep up the great work!

Paulina Jaskulska , January 09, 2008; 02:30 P.M.

boy you can talk Yinka :)

I started by looking at two of you photos submitted to the critique forum and end up reading your whole life story, which I must admit is very interesting It is such a joy for me to read that there are people out there happy with what they do, in love and who look forward to more in life to happen! :) I do like your huuge portfolio, which is pretty impressive considering you said you'd got hooked into photography world only 3 years ago! I will the most definitely be visiting your site regularly. And now if you excuse me as I need to go and have a closer look at your photos.

Regards. Paulina

Yannik Hay , January 11, 2008; 12:06 P.M.

Hello, you have an incredible portfolio. I will add you in my favs, I want to follow your work! Regards.

Mario Saliba , January 14, 2008; 12:40 P.M.

Huge and very impressive portfolio with great creativity in your photos. Keep up the good work. will keep an eye on your portfolio :) mario

Andy H , January 28, 2008; 10:09 P.M.


you have an amazing portfolio! You have some patience for waiting to get those colors. But i have a question, are any of your dawn and sunflower pictures photoshoped (exposure blending) because those colors look unreal.

Ron Chiang , January 31, 2008; 05:23 A.M.

Your photos are amazing,best grads!.../Ron

Dariusz Calkowski , February 10, 2008; 07:32 A.M.


I like very much your pictures (expect those with overused tonal mapping - but I don't like this unnatural effect any more) especially: Fashion, All Seascapes, Canadas (B&W are wonderful), All Portraits, Flowers, Autumn, Bugs, Birds, Animals, New York (but not London), Fireworks and some from Single Photos.

You started as a beginner, but from your weddings and studio portraits I think that now you started making money on your hobby. Be careful, my friend - ones very talented and keen photographer, now will not take camera in hand if somebody will not pay him few hundreds pounds for his efforts. He says that money killed his hobby, turning it into full time job finished it as a joyful hobby. Of course it was him, not you. I hope you will not end like him. Your talent deserves to grow, and earned money should buy for you more equipment.

Yinka Oyelese , February 10, 2008; 07:56 A.M.

Thanks Dariusz, for your kind words. No, I am not a professional and do not get paid for my photos. I do it all for fun.

Best wishes


Aylin Rafieva , February 21, 2008; 06:59 A.M.

Good job!

You photos are very interesting. Nice work!!! Really very nice!

Mario Monti , February 29, 2008; 07:43 P.M.

Hey Yinka, didn't even know you left me a comment.

I have seen your portfolio here many times and it never ceases to amaze me.

You're pictures and talents rock and are a true inspiration!


Christal Steele , March 06, 2008; 11:33 P.M.


You have a varied and wonderful portfolio here! I read that you recently started doing portraits....well, you should definitely keep going with them. I think they are your strongest work, actually....VERY well done! I'm curious about the cellist....your wife? And the conductor? Please read my bio (I'm a violinist), and if you care to share the circumstances, I would appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Christal Steele , March 12, 2008; 11:00 P.M.


Just a post-note to the comment you made on my portfolio. Maybe you didn't get my shot of Moraine Lake, but you have some spectacularly beautiful Canadian Rockies shots! It's really God's country, isn't it? Our daughter recently married a guy from Calgary, and she and I shopped for her wedding dress in Red Deer. Small world, eh? Aren't we both lucky that we have family there....all the more reason to visit more often. Thanks for the tip about the David Thompson Highway! Best wishes!

Andrew Daspin , March 18, 2008; 08:44 P.M.

Got a Question...

Yinka: I haven't been to your gallery for awhile,and I just stopped by to see what's new. I am overwhelmed at the quality and scope of your portfolio. It's just amazing. Congratulations to you on your incredible accomplishments in the field of photography. I also noticed that your work has recently been published in several magazines. This has aroused my curiosity. My work is not yet on a high enough level for publication, but I am striving toward that goal, and I am curious how this process works. What I mean is, how did you go about getting your photos into these publications? Did you just mail or email some shots to various publications, hoping some would be accepted, or is there a more formal process for pursuing this? If you could leave a few words about this at my portfolio, I would be deeply grateful. Once again, your work is extremely impressive. Thank you. Andrew Daspin

Dana Lugassy , March 23, 2008; 09:01 P.M.

Truly Amazing

Hi, Yinka Just came back for a long-overdue revisit to your gallery. Your work continues to amaze and impress me. The colors, the angles, the moods your capture...

I would love to know what lenses you are shooting with on your XT? I didn't see it listed in your bio.

Your expertise and compassion as a physician has made the world a better place. My family has always been so grateful for the work you do in the area of Vasa Previa. (Jenna Steckler is my sister and baby Jake was my nephew.) While I have not had the privelege to hear your music, I thank you for your beautiful photography. You certainly could have a second career in this art form. I am amazed that you find the time for your hobby!

:) Dana Lugassy Monmouth Junction, NJ

Yinka Oyelese , April 07, 2008; 09:06 P.M.

Thanks Dana

I have a variety of lenses:

Canon 70-200 F4L Canon 100 mm F 2.8 Macro Canon 50 mm F 1.4 Sigma 10-20 DC EX HSM Sigma 18-50 Canon 75-300 F4.5-5.6

It is so good to hear from you. Hope all is well.

Best wishes


Carl Wakefield , April 11, 2008; 02:09 P.M.

Hello Yinka Your portfolio is really excellent, congratulations your work is really worth viewing. 7/7 regards Carl

Jean-Michel Gariepy , April 13, 2008; 04:47 P.M.

Great Portfolio. Congrats on the magazine spreads. Your landscape work is stunning.

Jane Berg , April 20, 2008; 08:43 P.M.

Been too long ...

Dear friend, It's been quite a while since I've viewed your gallery. You continue to amaze me with your photographs. They are most incredible. I tink it's safe to say that you have a second career in the works if this medicine gig grows weary!

I look forward to meeting Patrice in person. She's very photogenic and beautiful. Please give her my regards.

Keep up the great work. I'll check back for future additions.


Felix Capote , April 24, 2008; 05:38 P.M.

Muy buenas tomas. Son algunas espectaculares. Un saludo

hello Yinka

your Seascapes (as well as the landscapes and waterfalls) are amazing, together with the "before birth" cyclus! There's plenty of great shots in other folders too, but these ones just fascinated me. You're great photographer - continue with such outstanding work! After seeing your pics I see how much more I still have to learn.. Many greets from Croatia *Igor

Amazing photography.

Ray Brizzi , October 18, 2008; 11:15 P.M.

Wow! Extremely powerful portfolio. It just goes everywhere and you do it all so well. If I have one criticism, it would be that the HDR effects on the barns is a detriment to the pictures. The odd grays really ruin what could be great pictures. Obviously you're a master of color, so I'm confused by those.

Monica Hines , November 02, 2008; 07:47 A.M.

thank you

I was drawn to look at one of the photos you posted in the "critique forum", and looked at your site as you requested. Your work is truly amazing. After reading your biography I was moved. I wanted to say thank you. I just purchased my first digital SLR, a Canon Rebel, I am learning how to use it and loving taking pictures. I am a RN on a L&D unit that specializes in high risk pregnancy here on the west coast in Seattle and have the utmost respect for the physicians that I work with. Anyways, I just wanted to say I love your photos, truly inspiring. Thank you for sharing. And may the Lord bless you. Monica

Ioan Alexandru Chiru , November 05, 2008; 12:44 A.M.

Hi !

You have a monumental portfolio with nice shots and great colours, congratulations !

Steve Lowther , November 06, 2008; 02:14 A.M.

Yinka, your portfolio is impressive!

But it is like drinking out of a fire hose!!!!

You are progressing in the art at a very rapid pace. You are creating heirlooms and images that will grow more valuable as time passes.

But you owe it to those who come to you hungry, who want to know what Yinka is all about not to expect them to eat the entire cow when a single choice cut will do.

How about 150-250 images in another account that would give us a sampling?

I see talent, but I also see this talent expanding, blossoming for years to come. There are cups plenty large, and to drink it all would be very satisfying. Maybe then put away the fire hose?

Jay Krishnan , November 07, 2008; 04:04 P.M.

Lot of pics...but all of them great!

Derek Woodruff , November 27, 2008; 01:32 A.M.

I am amazed that you took up this hobby as recently as 2005, you have produced some wonderful photos in such a short period of time. I have marked you as 'an interesting person' and will return to your portfolio often.
