Tom Saater

I'm a social documentary photographer/photojournalist and emerging documentary filmmaker from

Nigeria. I focus on reportage, urban portraits and social, cultural issues.


I have been working as a freelance photographer for the past 5 years.


In December 2010 I was invited by the British Council to participate in a photography project called My

Home is Here. The project involved travelling around Nigeria to produce images of Climate Change in

Nigeria and, as part of this project, I was selected to travel to Ethiopia to exhibit at the 2010 Addis Foto

Festival in Ethiopia.

I have been commissioned and my works published in the Abuja and Lagos TimeOut city guide, including two

front covers, The Africa Report, The Telegraph London, Foto8, Demotix, Mediadesk UK, BBC, Arise Magazine Big

Brother Africa (Video) Frog Design Shanghai and other local and international publications and NGO’s including

USAID, Amnesty International, Finland, Norway and Swedish embassies in Nigeria
