I write this blog with a heart full of tears but at the same time with HOPE for a better AFRICA ahead. What really saddens me about my continent is how the poor people are exploited by the politicians who even kneel and plead for these same poor people so they can be voted into office but the sad part is that after they obtain power they are nowhere to be seen. What pains me even the most is that […]
I really enjoy shooting Runway Fashion because it helps me perfect my skills. Why? Because I have seconds to capture the right image that showcases the fashion on the model. In shot capturing the mind of a designer of that particular outfit. The other thing is that change of lighting temperatures also helps with the speed at which I change my camera settings. If one can achieve great results from runway Photography then they can shoot any kind of photography.
Many are the challenges we go through as Africans but that does not take away our beauty as a people. Africa is home for me as a Photographer because it gave birth to me. Nothing beats the beauty of a home and so Africa is home and beauty is here. I am a very proud African Child
One of the tricky areas of photography is Corporate Photography because majority people think it’s just about posing someone in front of a camera but there’s more to it because it can be boring looking at an image that’s not engaging.

Finally Chama’s Day came to pass after a long journey. I was so honored when Chama called on me last year in October 2017 asking if 28th of April 2018 was free because she really wanted me to cover her event and I told her it was free, Chama did not hesitate to make a down payment and the journey began. We first did the pre-wedding photos and we interacted quite a lot. This is one of the brides I have enjoyed working […]
African Mothers go an extra mile in trying to provide for their children for the fact that most African men spend time drinking alcohol and would get home with no food or money so, mothers don’t just want to sit at home even if they just had a baby or have very small babies. The hustle is real for an African Mother/Woman. I respect these rural women because they are not as privileged s those in the urban.
Runway Fashion Photography is an area of photography most Photographers in Africa have sidelined because it seems to be a slow business as compared to events like weddings. Well, I love and enjoy this area because am “Passion Driven” then allow money to follow later. My vision is to document all Runway Fashion events in the world provided am given the platform to show my skills

A person with knowledge about Drawing with Light is the only person that qualifies to be called a Photographer. No matter how expensive a phone can be or no matter who owns what Camera. The secret is the knowledge about drawing with light is what determines who qualifies […]
