Yes, Finally, after blogger’s block for over six months, I decided to step out of my conventional photography projects and try something new, NATURE! I’ve always wanted to show how beautiful Ugandan skies are with our perfect weather and this post does that. It’s one of those hate or love it posts. All the shots have high intensity colour, contrast and clarity. Enjoy.
Efya Jane Awindor, formerly known as Miss J and Jane of the musical duo, Irene and Jane is a rising Afro-Soul musical sensation from Ghana. This beautiful Ghanaian princess who hails from the royal family of the Awindsors had been singing since she was 9, though didn’t quite decide to do it professionally until she auditioned and gained national recognition in 2008 as the first runner up of Charter House’s Stars Of The Future. Recently, her ‘Best In Me’ track featured in the award winning Nigerian movie ‘Flower Girl’. Now that you know a little about her. Go check out her music.
I’m sure when I talk about Ugandan movies, “Who Killed Captain Alex” comes to most people’s minds…haha. However I’d like to bring to your attention a new wave of up and coming movies from Uganda that are a class apart. I had the honour of attending the “Hang Out” movie premiere and I surely wasnt disappointed. It was worth my time and the movie was worth every penny…(lol though the premiere was free. You know we Ugandans and how we love asking for our money..lol). The genius behind this movie is Mr. Kennedy Kihire. Hang Out will air on MNET sometime this month, look out for it. Here are a few shots from the red carpet at the movie premiere. Enjoy.
So last Thursday I had the honour of watching Lilian and the Sundowners jam at the Yard at Big Mikes. I must say Lilian can siiiiinnnnggggg!!!
Ok on the technical photography side, this was my first low light event to photograph and as many photographers know, low light photography is a major test. I however was able to pull off a few good shots seen below. Some tips for low light photography: Increase your camera ISO, reduce your aperture to its lowest, use a tripod and use a fast lens for better results. Merçi.

P.Y.T. these were the three words that kept ringing through my mind as I did this shoot with Miss Patricia. She brought young, cute, edgy, cool, urban hip and a whole lot of other adjectives to the shoot. It’s rare to come across someone who from the word go gets into the shoot full swing, and Patricia is definitely one of those people. I had an amazing time shooting with her on the streets of Nairobi and these are the shots. Enjoy!
Happy New Year 2013. This year promises to be a smashing year in the level of photography in Uganda and I am quite excited about future work.
