I am a photographer, precisely a sports photographer (it’s obvious isn’t it?). My love affair with photography began way back in high school when I studied fine arts. I drew images with pencils and crayons. And then came along a camera. To hone my growing passion for photography, I undertook a number of formal learning. Prominent among these was my sojourn in the world-renowned New York Institute of Photography. It was a rewarding experience. By the way, my name is Eniye Clement. I love sports, especially Soccer. Like many of my peers back when growing up in Lagos Nigeria, I played the game.
Yes, I wasn’t a Messi or a Ronaldo, or even anything close to those two; but the skill, the passion, and the speed at which it is played are what attracted me to the game. And it remains so to date. Millions of soccer fans around the world, like me, converge to enjoy the highs and, sometimes, the agonizingly depressing lows the sport brings. I am privileged to be photographing these special moments from the closest point possible, the side-lines.
I like the candor, grit, and the pulsating excitement that comes with every soccer match. And I aim to keep capturing the soccer experience through world-class images for lovers of the beautiful game. When I’m not shooting, I spend my time engaged in a world-wide voluntary work. Welcome to my page. I’ll hang my boots for now.
