Java House Love is Here Campaign

Java House Love is Here Campaign

I will never forget my first time at Java: it was around 2003 at Adams Arcade. I’d never been to a coffee shop before and I wanted to impress a family friend who was visiting from the US. When I got there, I decided to order an expresso. I didn’t know what it was and the guy in me didn’t ask. Since my friend was running late, I decided to make it a double – I thought it’d drink it for longer as I waited. Lo and behold when the smiling waitress delivered in the tiniest of cups full of the stiffest drink I had ever tasted!

Customer Service at Total Motor Show… or lack thereof

Customer Service at Total Motor Show… or lack thereof

The growth of Kenya’s economy over the past decade has seen an increase in the number of companies fighting for a piece of your pay check as disposable income increases. And with many companies offering almost similar products and services, many decisions on where to spend your money are being made on emotional and not rational reasons. Customer Service Departments are moving closer to the big bosses’ doors as their contribution to bottom lines surpasses that of Sales and Marketing.

Somebody please wake up @MagicalKenya

Somebody please wake up @MagicalKenya

Tourism remains a key pillar for Kenya’s economy, employing thousands of Kenyans and providing billions of shillings in revenue to local businesses and the taxman. It is no wonder we all get feverish whenever travel advisories are issued. The Kenya Tourism Board has quite a task, making sure travel advisory or none, Kenyans and foreigners make different destinations in this beautiful land their top pick holiday destination.

Shooting for Farm Africa in Western Kenya

Shooting for Farm Africa in Western Kenya

As far as the east is from the west…

That’s how different it was shooting in Kitui and western Kenya for Farm Africa. While farmers in Kitui have unreliable rainfall and poor soils working against them, farmers in Western Kenya have some of the most fertile soils in Kenya, and beautiful weather to crown their favour. But having these isn’t enough. A lot of training is needed for the farmers to take advantage of their blessings to achieve the best harvests. And that’s where Farm Africa step in.

Visiting Lake Ol Bolossat

Visiting Lake Ol Bolossat

Located between the Aberdare Ranges and Dundori Ridge is Central Province’s only natural lake – Ol Bolossat. I also didn’t know that it was the only one in Central Province until about two years ago. I’d always longed to visit it and see the beauty it held and last week, the opportunity presented itself and I joined friends from Onetouch for a short trip there.

Safaricom Jazz Festival 2015

Safaricom Jazz Festival 2015

When I started out in photography about nine years ago, concerts were I clicked the most. The opportunity to interact with great performers live and move freely yet discreetly at concerts kept me going back for more. Then career happened and with that, other projects, sending concerts to the backseat. This year, I want to WD40 the rust in my concert trigger finger and get back to my first love. So when I saw the Jonathan Butler billboards and heard the Mavuno Worship Team perform their rendition to ‘Falling in Love with Jesus’, I knew I had to attend the Safaricom Jazz Festival.

Moments with Myles

Moments with Myles

I woke up this morning to the news of the passing of Dr Myles Munroe, his wife and others in Bahamas. I usually get sad when I hear of the death of someone I knew, but not this time. There was a sense of celebration in me. Celebration of the life of a man who gave his all to make God’s word understood to me, to know the power I have within me. His greatest lesson to me: Die empty. This is something I believe he did.

2014 Safaricom 7s

2014 Safaricom 7s

I’ve always loved sports photography. So when I saw the Safaricom Sevens billboards a couple of weeks ago, I started preparing to be there for Africa’s premier sevens tournament. I applied for my accreditation to be able to shoot from the field but two days to kick-off, I was told it wasn’t approved.

TBT – Just A Band 82 Launch Concert

TBT – Just A Band 82 Launch Concert

I remember this day quite clearly: it was Saturday 17th October 2009; there was an Oliver Mutukudzi concert going down at Bomas and the JAB 82 launch at GoDown Arts Centre; I was torn between the two and I’m glad I made the better choice. JAB’s sound was still relatively new in a country where many forms of Benga dominated the airwaves, so their fan base was small, but very dedicated. Actually, the concert felt more like a gathering of friends of the JAB lead members, Jim Chuchu, Bildad Selanga and Daniel Muli.
