I am an experienced professional photographer in both private practice and corporate clients for over 15 years in the United Sates and Sub Saharan Africa. I have certificates from both the Kenya University Technical College and New York Institute of Photography. I specialize in marketing and product photography, portraiture, wedding and event photography. I was Chief Photographer for Oxford University Press, East and Central Africa for over 15 years.

It gives me opportunities to capture very special moments in people's lives and share their stories in positive, creative and artistic ways. Every day is unique and memorable. It makes my day seeing my clients faces light up and smile when they see their images. I'm glad when they say to me " My birthday, wedding, etc is next month and please know that NO one else will take the picture but YOU !'.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many family portraits in the past. I like to do my engage the parents and the kids to smile as it really makes for a great photo that the family can look back for years to come. I also try to tap into the family's personality . For example, when the parents are young and playful, I try to create a vibrant, fun composition to show how the children bring out the inner kids in their parents.
