Commercial photographers in the country are appealing to the government through the Central Bank of Liberia to provide a small loan scheme them, especially for those that are engaged in buttressing the Liberian economy.
Speaking to our Business desk yesterday, Eddie K. Weah, a photographer, said that commercial photography is a good business to engage in for Liberia.
According to him, photographers need help from the national government to be empowered financially.
“Photography is a good business that helps to build the country’s economy,” he indicated.
He said that commercial photograph plays an important role in this new age, and commercial photos are finding their way into all sorts of unconventional spaces.
Mr. Weah, who is also a student of the University of Liberia, explained that commercial photographing is everywhere, and smart companies know how to make use of the growing market for these photos.
Photographer Weah further asserted that in order to be successful as an individual or country, commercial photography helps convey real feeling and evokes an emotional response to the international community as well as investors.
He also used the occasion to extend his gratitude to the CBL governor for his many contributions towards empowering Liberian owned businesses.
“I want to use this medium to appeal to the Government, especially the CBL governor, Dr. Jones to look into our plights.”
