On Swaptime, Nwando connected with Denola Grey. Denola Grey needed photography services as he got ready for the Brits Awards 2024 and Nwando needed a model to help her achieve her goal of shooting more lifestyle content in her locality. Recognizing the value in each other’s skills, they had an agreement: Denola would use his influence to promote Swaptime, while Nwando would provide her photography services in return.

You could tell they had a swell time throughout the duration of the collaboration. Right from the preparations and pre-show moments at Nobu Hotel, London Shoreditch to travelling to the venue in style with Audiuk, who provided VIP treatments for Denola Grey, an influencer for their brand.

The collaboration between Denola and Nwando is what Swaptime is about – a place where individuals and businesses can exchange skills and support each other’s goals.

Their partnership emphasizes the kind of collaboration and community that Swaptime provides. It’s not just about exchanging skills, it’s also about building meaningful connections and helping each other succeed. As Denola Grey puts it, “It was the exchange of value and aligning with someone who saw my vision. It was a great feeling knowing that both parties were satisfied without our wallets taking a significant hit. There were services provided on both ends and both parties were happy with the outcome.”

Denola and Nwando’s story is one example of many scenarios of how Swaptime can help you solve real-life problems through collaboration. Denola Grey reitirated this by saying;

“I work in an industry that runs on a lot of freelance work and being able to use my skills and resources at my disposal in exchange for services that can help my career is an excellent way to mitigate the costly nature of what I do.”

Nwando agrees with him. To her, being able to connect with other creatives opens her to new markets for her career as a photographer.

Together, they demonstrate that by coming together and sharing skills, everyone can thrive in their endeavours. This could be you too, having unique experiences like Nwando who said “I could have hired a model, created a mood board, and photographed this, but it would not have been as authentic as an influencer getting ready in Nobu Shoreditch to head to one of the greatest shows in London.”
