February 1, 2020

Throughout my life, I have tried so many things. Spoken-word, writing, I once owned a fruit salad business with a friend then, later on, we opened a printing business. My partner started doing design and I started photography. I also forgot the part where I started swimming with the hope that I would one day be participating in the 2016 Olympics.

This took me down a path of experimentation which lead to spending thousands of shillings on pieces of equipment that I do not even use today.  The purpose of this article is to answer the question ‘What are some of the mistakes that camera buyers make?’ The five...

HOW TO CHOOSE A CAMERA FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
January 17, 2020

A few weeks ago I got a question from a high school friend. He was in the market for a new camera and wanted to know what camera to start with. The answer to this question is the camera that you start with, is the camera that fits within your needs. When I first bought my camera there was a whole lot of thinking that I did not do. Amongst the things that I did not think about was what genre of photography I would do. This would ultimately define...
