Shooting Kenyan Farmers

Shooting Kenyan Farmers

Despite many Kenyans ‘going digital’, farming still remains our major economic activity, employing and providing for the livelihoods of more people than any other industry in the country. For the last six months, I’ve had the privilege to get off the super highways and onto the unpaved roads leading to farms that produce what will be on your plate this evening. This was thanks to USAID through the Kenya Horticultural Competitiveness Project that is implemented by Fintrac.

The Olang’s

The Olang’s

As far as shooting weddings goes, this was a very special one to me because it was the union of two very good friends whom I’ve known for a very long time.

I believe it is Njeri whom I met first, when she hijacked my camera from me when I was shooting an event at Mavuno and started clicking away without even introducing herself. She later became a second shooter at several weddings I shot. Marcus on the other hand did introduce himself at a separate event, still at Mavuno, where he was the MC. Fast forward several years and here I was, on their wedding day, capturing the end of their separate lives and start of their lives as The Olang’s.

Ben and Gathoni Kiruthi’s Wedding

Ben and Gathoni Kiruthi’s Wedding

Sometime early last year, I received a call from Ben Kiruthi and Gathoni Mwathi. They wanted us to meet and talk. I thought it was going to be a simple chat about work, shooting styles, lens reviews, rate cards and all things photography. Well, it turned out they wanted me to be one of the photographers at their wedding!

I gulped at their request and agreed, then started preparing for the pressure that would come from shooting the wedding of a respectable couple who’s work I admired.

This week’s wallpaper comes as I turn the first pages of my 37th calendar. This year, I hope to kiss more places with my photography and showcase what a blessed world we live in, as testified by this elephant we spotted in Amboseli during February’s #OnetouchLive expedition.

African Screens 41 – Lake Kivu Fishermen

I hope you are doing well today.

Minimalism is a style of photography that I truly love. Instead of filling my frame with the subject, I give it enough breathing space, especially when the surrounding is plain and free off clutter. It works very well with landscapes where you can have a little ground and massive skies.

African Screens 40 – Kilimanjaro Landrover

African Screens 40 – Kilimanjaro Landrover

I got to spend the best part of last week in Amboseli National Park with Onetouch.

On the way there, we all marvelled at the clear view of Mt Kilimanjaro and were individually drooling at the thoughts of taking shots of it. When the drool run out, one of us asked our tour guide to stop the car so that we could click away and to everyone’s delight, he obliged.

I’m working to make Africa the place the world comes to receive help, not to offer it.
