Director of Videography /Editor/Photography
I’m Ekow Essah Ayensu (EASCOUT) Sport Influencer, Digital Manager, Football Scout , Videographer & Video Editor based in Tema
it has been a long creative road, My love for football started from infancy, when I used to gather the kids in my neighbourhood to have a soccer competition when I was only 10 years old. I grew from that stage to affectionately grow love for Videography.
I was interested & excited about the ability to capture every movement & moment just by handling the camera correctly. Gathering the most talented footballers in my community to host football matches to video, edit & promote won me positive feedbacks from my mates. On their faces were joy and hope anytime the final output video was watched by them. Slow but sure I believed with my passion and determination, a talent will definitely find its way into the spotlight. I used the positive remarks from people as a path of motivation to propel me higher (Not as a Pro-Videographer but I took it as a hobby back than).
I have analysed a lot of sports events and also gained international recognition on SuperSports. A special interview concerning Tottenham Hotspurs. SuperSports turned to me on many occasions to ask of my views on many football matches. My deeper experience in football analytics is what got me there.
I have appeared on the live session of English Premier League Fanzone, interview on many occasions to speak on Tottenham HotSpurs Football and other matters,
(My brand name is "EASCOUT " originated from my versatility & the capacity to adapt & scout for Great Talents into any field or category you place me), the ability to equip others into believing in their skills.
For me to be a good Videographer I had to acquire skills in Graphic designing, Programming ,& web development & Photography.
I never looked back, There are no regrets ever since I picked up the camera, in fact the best decision I ever made, my only regret is putting it on hibernation mode for a while. It has open new doors, opportunities & expressing my creative ideas in ways I never imagine was possible.
I work with other photographers as a team on a group project, or I work independently (Crew)
I love taking up new challenges and roles which expand my creative perspective so I never gave it a second thought when NB Sports Live (Online Media Production Company Contents creators For Women Sporting Activities) came calling. It's something refreshing new online portal reporting mainly on women sports, first in Ghana, if am not wrong.
I see women sports having the lowest publicity in the country; the media doesn’t show much interest in women's sports as much as they do for their male counterparts.
Teaming Up with NBSPORTS LIVE, helping to project & throw more lights on women sports, attracting needed public attention is satisfying enough as a creative person
I have shot, Edited and managed projects with NBSPORTS including:
AFRICA NG SPORT
GHANA TALENT SCOUT
Provided creative input on various projects Utilized editorial softwares such as Adobe Suite Organized strategic guidelines for new Photographers in the sports sector.
I believe the creative space and Photography is something which is never truly mastered, there is always new things to discover, new environment to draw your inspiration, new people meet & learn from. Team work plays a very vital role, there is no room for complacency. Remember everyday is a new challenge.
