Where It All Started

My journey to photography began in 2015. I was a second year journalist student at Multimedia University of Kenya. During class assignments, I was always the camera person. However at that time I was more interested in videography as opposed to being a photographer.

Towards the end of the second year my friends and classmates encouraged me to give photography the green light. So first, I decided to learn more about DSLR cameras and understand how photography works. I remember sitting on YouTube for hours while others were working or in class.

The Start Of Something Great

In early 2016, I realized that photography was a great way to connect my imagination to the real world. I had learnt several aspects of photography. As a beginner I was driven by hunger to try all of them in order to for me to realize which category I should stick with. That is when I developed a love for portraiture. Just capturing the emotions portrayed by my subjects.

My skill in photography is an artifact of passion, patience, research, creative thinking and practice.

I always appreciate the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in-between moments, and I do my very best to take every picture with that in mind.

My passion is for viewers to relate to my photographs through recognition  and familiarity with the situations, emotions and the energy so much that they wonder if they are looking at a picture of someone they know.

I take great pride in capturing true spirit and people’s personalities. My style has been described as fun, engaging and relaxed. I want to make it unique.

Last year was a great year. The journey made me love African Fashion and linking that with photography, just blew my mind, making it the perfect combination for creating unique pieces.

At this point in my career, I want to tell visual stories through fashion and colors. This is in order to promote talented upcoming designers and myself too. I want to allow and encourage people that one cannot be limited.

2018 is going to be a year of great opportunities, creative exercises and a lot of color.

By the way am a great fan of collaboration. It’s one of the best way to learn and grow.
