Many students despise job opportunities that are always available at university. Most of the these students are too well off and don’t need to work in order to get what to eat at campus but there is also the other side of the coin where one has to work hard for him/her to get upkeep and some even some of these students pay for themselves. Some of these work in supermarkets, washing bays, data entry and ushering.
Joshua Tayebwa Kabooko aka Bojar, a third year student pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Procurement and Supply Chain Management is person who is optimistic about being successful and started Photography as his side hustle. He got this business idea way back when one Photographer charged him 100k to give him 30 soft copy pictures for his birthday party and to him, that was an abnormal profit for the photographer.
Having been someone who has passion for photography and for long he had been looking for a side hustle to do, he borrowed the idea and bought a camera and decided to start though the start was not that simple. He always told his friends that “I would rather be tired than broke!”
His target market is campus students, friends in and around campus and having known some other photographers out there, he has continued to get more market. He says the reason why he started photography was that he can be able to raise himself financially and his little sisters. He was inspired by a one Eddie Pages of Eddie Pages Photography and he is the one people who gave him more light about photography.
On asking him what he can advise those people/students out there he said, “You can actually start small, and carry on as you improve! If 100k is all you have, start with that. If 4M is the biggest budget you have, start with that and grow small until you prosper!”
“And secondly make more friends, reason being, the generation we are in now is about ‘who knows you, not what you know’ I would love to see my fellow youth prosper into being hardworking people than being beggars and thugs.” He added.
For those who would like to contact him, he gets most of his customers online through online friends. Facebook as Tashobya Joshua Kabooko, Twitter @joshbojar69692 (Farmer’s son) and WhatsApp 0753109316.
