groove awards 2011

At the 2009 Groove Awards is where I believe I discovered my skills in concert photography. I’ve become a regular attendee since.

Mo Sound do a great job in putting the event together. Their level of professionalism is impeccable. My only suggestion is they move the red carpet to a place where we photographers don’t have to fight with the sun – we always loose.

Highlight of the day, Daddy Owen giving his Male Artist of the Year award to Juliani – grown men do cry.

September 2007 was the first time I took photos of Nairobi by night.

I hooked up with Fadzter, Makumi, Francuso and Ken, got a 2-day shooting permit for Kshs10,000/- from DFS, informed the cops at Central Police and over a Friday and Saturday night, walked around Nairobi CBD taking photos. We had so much fun and agreed to repeat the excitement but wapi

Three years later, inspired by the works of trigger-happy oneTOUCHers, I went to the KICC helipad today to take more shots of this beautiful city.

My GHC teacher was right – it gets cooler the higher you go. The wind was human-bending strong and since I hadn’t carried a jacket, I kept jumping on the spot in-between exposures to keep warm.

My Commerce teacher was right too – the view is better from the top.

I need to reduce my multi tasking and just do one thing at a time.

I started my day deep in Thika at a friend’s mum’s unveiling of the cross, then went to Ngara to order some signs and was late for Groove Awards at KICC.

Being at Groove was the day’s highlight, hands down.

The atmosphere was charged with excitement and performances electric. I got to experiment with different framing techniques.

Today, in a special way, I got to see God direct my photography. All I did was click away – He did the rest.

All glory to you Dad.
