Macro Monday


, , ,

Had a chance to attend the Bugging, A Macro Journey workshop today at The National Museum in Nairobi. I had never tried macro photography on bugs seriously before, so this was a learning experience for me. I had so much fun that i will definitely be doing more bug macros from now on.

Here are a few critters from today.

Thanking God for Wives & Sisters


, , , ,

Father’s day just passed and I was left wondering whether there should be a Wives’ Day or Sister’s/Brother’s Day? Although I’m sure if they did exist they would probably be grouped together with birthdays and anniversaries in the highly-likely-to-be-forgotten-category in my mind (so not nice Gibel).

So to make up for such unintentional misdeeds (past,present or future) today is Wife Appreciation Day; which surprisingly just happens to coincide with Sister Appreciation Day. Who would have thought, 2 in 1. Ohh gosh!

And today I would like to appreciate my wife for doing awesome center pieces for her sister’s pre-wedding function. And my sister for doing spectacular make-up upon the aforementioned sister-in-law. And to my aforementioned sister-in-law, thank you for letting me capture those butterflied-belly moments.

Love you all.

Easter Roadtrip


, , , , , , ,

This year’s Easter plan was a road trip to Kisumu and Eldoret with a stop over at Lake Bogoria to visit the hot springs. We spent one night at Kiboko Bay in Kisumu which has a beautiful view of the lake and the sunset. The next stop was Eldoret to visit family and hang out together.

On the way back we went through the scenic Kerio Valley to get to Lake Bogoria. When we got there and found out, due to the raising water levels, the road was flooded. So we had a 18km detour through the hillside to get to the springs; what would have taken us one hour took us three hours to do. But the experience was kinda worth it at the end of the day.

Here are some pictures from Kisumu and Lake Bogoria.

Athlete Profile – Daniel


, , ,

We got an inquiry some time back from Daniel for portraits that he can use in his portfolio. He is a fitness trainer at a private gym, runs his own gym and also competes as a body builder.

We setup a meeting to discuss what he had in mind and exchange ideas on what type of shoot it will be. I’ve always wanted to do a project like this and one of my joys of photography is playing around off-camera lighting. I showed him a couple of sample images and he loved them; that was the birth of this shoot.

We decided the best location for the shoot would be his gym on a Sunday morning when it was not busy. Here are a few from our session.
