There is plenty of talent in various fields in Ghana and we are only happy to highlight and promote the rising stars where we can. Kaptin is a young talent who is into visual art photography, with an eye for what makes a great image.
What started off as a hobby in December 2016 has now escalated to a high-end franchise.
The life of Chris Marshall Boakye Jr. popularly known as *KAPTIN*, one of the country’s best young generation photographers is by no means conventional. By turns acerbic, playful, and even absurd creativity which is quite compelling are some of the attributes associated with the young chap.
Having interned with Glitz Africa and Vine Imagery, producing a few memorable covers/visual shots under these reputable brands has helped groom Kaptin in becoming one of the young renowned photographers in Ghana.
Kaptin is a Ghana based photographer and film director who likes to travel and create visual shots. His editorial photography stems from a place of spirit and space. He is methodical about the mood of his works. He gives great thought to overall tones and composition by creating elaborate mood boards for every project he commits to. The presence of raw emotions and feelings is apparent in each piece regardless of the art medium. The brands and people he chooses to work with are more than business partners, they are more like family.
Most of Kaptin’s works are being shot in Ghana but a lot of people actually categorize him as a traveler because of his color grading works which have been published online. Again, he is set to work with “FEAR NO MAN” Clothing owned by Africa’s renowned stylist Kulaperry, who’s currently the best stylist/designer in the fashion and entertainment industry. The partnership with Kulaperry’s *FEAR NO MAN* Clothing is set to be a mind blowing creative visual work.
Secondly, He’s worked in Partnership with Daniks Peters, a Retro – Merchandise Brand which has been on Ghana’s biggest Fashion Event ‘The Glitz Africa Fashion Week’ hosted by Kempinski Hotel in Accra. The Collaboration brought a lot of impressions on the Merchandise brand as well.
Kaptin works with a group of people like @Fondmanic and @kwamekodah who come up with concept for his visual masterpiece shots. He travels with them on photography trips to create amazing visual shots.
One would think that after just 2 years of being in the photography and arts field, Kaptin would still be in his learning stage but this chap has mastered the art of creating mind-boggling masterpieces that targets brands like *Adidas,* *Puma*, *Yeezy*, *Stampd* and a lot of other street wear brands across the globe who are gradually recognizing his works. This undeniably sets him apart from other photographers in Ghana because the unique skills infused into his works makes his pieces very different from other artists in the country.
