An Evening with Liz Gilbert

Pro Photography Session

I had the privilege of attending an evening with the renowned international photographer, Liz Gilbert, at PAWA254.

The place was packed with upcoming and aspiring photographers and Liz was on hand to answer questions and provide her own insights into her 23-year journey as a photographer.

 

 

It was a wonderful experience to be in company with Liz whose work has appeared on TIME, Newsweek, and other popular publications. Her work has also been featured across many museums across the world.

 

 

 

Liz has two books under her belt and a documentary feature film entitled “The Last Safari.” This is Liz’s attempt to go back to the communities that she had visited 10 years earlier and show them the pictures she took.

 

 

 

 

Liz’s quote from the talk

Her experience and her interest in growing young talent was evident in her voice and her enthusiasm to contribute 

Hopefully, she will continue to inspire and motivate us to keep doing what we love to do.

On location: Artsy Mama Seminar

The Artsy Mama event went down on the 26th, February, 2014 at the Michael Joseph Center. The event took place from 11:00 AM till around 3:00 PM.

 

This was an event by women but not for women alone. Very few men came along (including me), but the place was warm.

 

The atmosphere was serene and feminine.

A lot of wares were on display as stay-at-home moms showcased what they do right from home and make a living out of it.

We also had a line of 4 panelists who have gone far and beyond and actually put their skills and passions to use. Some of these women have set up businesses and captured the Kenyan corporate market and made a name for themselves.

And here are the panelists:

At a Construction Site

I recently volunteered for a demolition project at Pangani and the experience was energetic and quite frankly fun. Here is what I got. Enjoy!

National Museums of Kenya Garden

I recently shot these at the National Museums of Kenya garden. I loved the detailed natural surroundings and I could not resist using my 35 mm lens to bring them up close and show you nature in its natural settings.
