Lens focus on 10 elegant portraits from brand photographer Gilbert Asante

A lot of people have the misconception that a good picture depends on the camera and equipment you use. But many pro photographers will tell you otherwise.  It is about perspective, and that is where our lens swivels to Ghanaian ace brand photographer Gilbert Asante.

Gilbert Asante has photographed personages such as Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, actress and seasoned emcee Anita Erskine and all-round artist Kidi.

Gilbert Asante’s portfolio is teeming with the names of big brands such as Martell, Proman from Ernest Chemist and Guiness Ghana. His work is a favourite with Glitz Magazine and Glam Africa and we completely understand why. His portraits are breathtaking. His pictures, and this is no hyperbole, evoke scents of cocoa butter and chocolate.
