We can’t get enough of TY Bello’s unique insight into life. We think she should write a book of inspiration already!
The renowned Photographer recently posted a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger holding a placard with NAIJA boldly written on it on her instagram page.
She captioned the picture with a back story and added that being bold and relentless in the pursuit of your dreams is the way to go.
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER : I made this portrait while he was still In Government . I walked in .. Shook his hand and said ‘ this is going to be quick.. I promise ‘.. ‘ Sir .. Do you want Nigerians to think you’re the coolest Governor ever ?? .. Then hold this !’ So I turned around and grabbed a brown envelope .. Folded it In half and scribbled ‘Naija’ ‘Sir’ .. Could you please give your meanest “I’ll be back”look?’ I guess he did .
I remember him laughing afterwards saying ‘ I can’t believe I just did that’.. Sometimes I wonder where the ideas and boldness comes from especially when I’m shooting iconic people . I just maintain a posture to honor them and just go with it .. You just have to ask .. You’ll never know
