About Her Creative Journey:
Prior to graduating in 2015 with an advanced Diploma in Broadcasting & Film from Centennial College, and a certificate in Communications & Media Foundations, Lady Mensah desired to be an actress and a radio presenter. This led her to volunteer for production companies such as Big OJ Production, assisting in music video shoots. She starred in short web series and short films with Sunset Production & AY Productions and hosted her own radio show called 'Discussion Room' on Unity FM & 'Lady's Corner Show' on Kilimandjaro Radio located in Toronto & Mississauga. From time to time she hosts events, such as weddings, bridal and baby showers, as the Master of Ceremony. In the past, she promoted entertainment events within the community. In 2019 she completed the BizStart Entrepreneurship program ran by Y.E.S, for their business planning & marketing program. In early 2020, she partook and completed the Digital Tech program with CEE Toronto for their VFX Program for Young Black Professionals.
Years before that, she was under the mentorship of Dwayne Holness, the Creative Director and founder of Corex Creative, as a production assistant. She Later proceeded to tackle other exciting projects with other creatives in & outside of Toronto. Aside from a side hobby of radio hosting, she took on a new role as the director & first shooter with Eve's Eye Production, conducting one-on-one interviews, photographing, video-graphing at Concerts within and outside North America (Return of the Rap God- Sarkodie Live Concert with the composers, Life Is Eazi #DettyToronto tour, 30 Billion Canada Tour - Davido Live, African All-Stars Music Fest, Kids For Kids with Joyce Blessing gospel concert, The True Worshippers Concert with Joe Mettle, Afrofest, African Giant Canada Tour, with international African musical talents such as Sarkodie, StoneBwoy, Mr. Eazi, Wiz Kid, Burna Boy, Mr. Flavour, Olamide, Yemi Alade, Sauti-Soul, Prince Alikiba, Tekno, Kizz Daniel, DJ Spinall, Mi-Casa, Falz The Bahd-Guy, Bisa Kdei, Joey B, Kwame Eugene, KiDi, Fally ipupa, Joyce Blessing, Joe Mettle and etc).
Client satisfaction brings her joy, so she makes sure to build rapport with all her clients, in order to make them feel comfortable and energetic prior to and during production. Though acting is her passion, photography captivated her now more and more during her late college years. This is why after what felt like years of labouring for free volunteering for a position with a Tv or production studio in the city, she finally gained the courage to register LM Studios in 2018 to shoot for herself, with more creative freedom.
Her Photographic Style:
Lady Mensah's photographic style is vibrant and naturally simple. She enjoys all types of artistic visuals in colour or black & white imagery. Whether it's dark, moody, surrealist, documentary style or Van Gogh-like image, she is all over it. She loves getting to know people and their stories – then translates them into genuine, active, warm & life-filled photographs, working her shutter when she vibes what's seen through the lens, hoping her clients will also feel a similar connection when they look at their images.
Lady Mensah's creative focus now is on individual projects using natural and artificial lighting to photograph lAll inclusive Maternity, Newborn, Lifestyle portraits, Weddings, Events, Birthdays and sometimes, commercial photography, shooting food, products and fashion.
She is inspired by the beauty all around her and finds photography incredibly rewarding for her mental health – Though it's not always easy dealing with people, there’s something so exciting about capturing real emotives, like those off-guard big belly laughs. She often says "when it's from an adult or from a child, it warms your heart and sparks your cheeks". Henceforth she always wants her photographs to celebrate your life, your love, and your happiness in a natural, genuine way.
