Last week we turned a local Kinyozi into a studio. This week we turn a grazing field to be a sweet spa where the models bathed in the sunset. As usual, I start with ‘others’ ?

As usual pastor Olonana has to start blessing the venue with his, “Mbinguni kuna shungwa na ndimu” song.

And then we needed one mshungaji to test the camera settings.

Kumbe he reads some politics and has seen those Bwana Tumbos clasping their hands on every photo they take.

THE END – I mean the end of such faces. The camera is now tested. The settings are okay. Now to what brought us here.

Wakaar: Aki woiye si kesho tutaenda shoot juu leo kumenyesha?

Me: Tutaangalia

Wakaar: Aki paliiiz! Angalia venye tulikuwa tumebeba nguo

Me: (Almost joking about it, then I realize my pastor is watching) Tutaangalia…

Wakaar: Aki wooooiye…

Here goes the woiye girl ?

That was my first pro-bono shoot in Narok. I was launching a new pricing line that was friendly to university students especially those in Maasai Mara. I really had fun, it was so nice to work with such amazing souls who never called or texted to ask, “Aki zile photos unatuma lini?” – I can tell you for free that photographers hate this question.

Keep tuned. I will be doing more themed shoots in a couple of days.

Buy me coffee? 

Have you read my e-books?

Why do you not receive when you give? Well, your character needs to be built first. Stop whining and complaining. Stop giving God commands reminding Him that you are giving all you have. He clearly says that you should stop worrying about life. He asks, ‘Isn’t life more than food or clothing?

My village people, I know you are eagerly waiting to help us offload our baggage off our cars as you give us those double-sided hugs. Forgive us for touching your kids’ hair and asking them ‘ulikuwa number ngapi’ as if we have something great planned for them.
