Foodie by Azil

They say inspiration can strike at any time. When our friend and make up artist Liz Oduor (Azil) told us she had a food - inspired make up concept, we couldn't wait to hear more about it! We speculated for a while on what kinds of foods she would want to work with; would it be messy, would we have to cook, what happens to the leftovers..?  The concept got even more interesting for us when we discovered that she intended to use traditional African foods for her several make up looks. What followed was a week of the most delicious and exhausting...

DAWN by Kato Change

Kato Change. What can we say about this incredibly talented soul that we have not already? When he came to us and entrusted his vision for his debut album to us, we were speechless. It is a responsibility that we do not take lightly. Words are not enough to describe his endearing and passionate spirit so we'll just let you decide for yourself. Here is the unofficial video for his brand new single, "Dawn", that we shot on a beautiful Sunday morning à la Nairobi sun :) "Kato is one of those guitarists that treats his guitar as an extension of his soul....

My Bonded Valentine – a Fifty Shades of Grey inspired shoot

Fifty Shades of Grey has been all the rage for a while now, and with the movie premiering worldwide on Valentine's day (unless you live in Kenya, lol), our friend Sinitta of Cultured Ego had the idea to do a bondage - themed photo shoot that also showcased ideal red lipsticks for different skin tones. Working with Sinitta  is always an exciting experience; she is undoubtedly the queen of creating looks from scratch using the most unconventional materials! Using the concept of bondage from Fifty Shades of Grey and her usual contrast of hard & soft, edgy & feminine, she had us searching for...

Back to the Future

Happy New Year! We hope you're all having a fantastic one so far; if not, we're here to change that ;) This was technically our last photoshoot of 2014 - we had been toying around with a few ideas and rounded up the usual team to put it all together. Our basic idea was to shoot several different glamour and edgy looks using our muse for the shoot - model Danniella Morgan - and to create the feeling of travelling through time, essentially going "back to the future". Without saying too much, here we go! You know the drill, if you like...

Picture of the Week: River Road

This week's photo (and first of the year!) comes from Lake Natron, one of Africa's most serene lakes and home to East Africa's largest flamingo population. It is a saline lake on the border of Northern Tanzania and Kenya, created by breathtaking natural pools of shallow water carved over eons into the stony bedrock. Once again, I teamed up with One Touch Live to go on another adventure discovering the picturesque and less traveled parts of our country. I was in awe during the entire two day expedition; it was one of the most extraordinary places I have ever been to, and an...

Coke Studio Africa II: Part 1

In our last post, we talked about our Coke Studio Africa experience with the legendary Wyclef Jean. We cannot, however, mention the project without saluting the amazing 26 African artists and numerous house band members who came together to make memorable music and unite the continent through song. Over the next few posts, we'll let you in on what went down during the first 13 weeks. Sit back and enjoy :)...

Coke Studio Africa II : Divine Sorrow

If you had told us in the beginning of this year that we were going to meet and photograph multiple Grammy award winning superstar Wyclef Jean, we would never have believed you. But thankfully we were blessed with the opportunity to re-join Coke Studio Africa for their electric second season and it came to pass!   Working on Coke Studio has always been a special experience; from having a rare glimpse into the collaborative process between the artists and the house band, to learning from legends in the industry and of course being a part of a family of extremely talented professionals in...

Crazy, Sexy, Cool.

Hello friends! We're trying to be better at this blogging thing so here's another one for you to sink your teeth into :) When we met Danniella while shooting for Healthy Woman, we knew we had to work with her again! We mulled over it for a while and agreed that we wanted to capture her fun, cool and carefree spirit in a bright and dynamic setting. After looking around, we found the perfect location; vibrant mabati, brick walls, symmetrical 3D patterns, we had struck gold! As fate would have it, the location did not pan out and we were extremely disheartened....

Fear & Desire: Release

We're back! :) So sorry we've been gone so long but we were ÜBER busy with our exhibition. Didn't hear about that? For shame! You've come to the right place though, so get comfortable and enjoy! Our first personal out of town shoot was at the beautiful Castle Forest Lodge, a homely serene location on the foothills of Mount Kenya. That was back in 2012 and we have grown so much since then. When we came up with another nature – themed concept, we knew instantly that we wanted to go back to Castle and do the location justice, with the...
