About 1117 Collective

1117 Collective is a food and beverage photography company based in Lagos, Nigeria and available to shoot beyond. We are run by Uduak & Rani.

Our goal is really simple – to create high-quality soulful visuals for food and beverage brands. Sounds vague? Keep reading…

We mean beyond great images from a technical point of view (which we can and will deliver), it’s deeply important to us that we create images that are so expressive of a brand’s personality and really and truly draws the audience in. We want to ensure that the images we create have the ability to evoke an emotional response in potential customers, draw them in and cause them to engage with the brand both online and offline.

Our approach to creation is very collaborative and we work with food & beverage consumer brands, restaurants and marketing agencies to create the type of images that truly aid the marketing and branding needs.

We take a wholistic approach towards image creation and so our services are not limited to actual shot-taking but FULL production; we wear a lot of hats and offer creative direction, food & beverage preparation and food styling. We can create great images that are solely focused on the food & drink as well as images that include human elements to convey an experiential perspective.

We specialise in still images, stop motion, cinemagraphs and short ‘how-to’ video clips.

When we aren’t shooting, we are wining and dining out!
