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 benefit of experience and learning on our side.
“Fear and Desire” is an original creative concept that tells a story about beauty and contrast through texture in landscapes, make up, styling and an ethereal mood. “Fear & Desire: Release” is our first instalment in a three part series so we’ve got lots more coming up for you 😉

We are extremely grateful to everyone who made this concept and exhibition such a great success; from the dedicated crew who sacrificed time, money and especially sleep, our gracious hosts Njuri and Scott Geller who opened up their lovely cabin to us, The Shifteye Gallery who went to great lengths to accommodate us during the period of our exhibition and everyone who physically came to support us. Special S/O to Quentin Ikiki, Juliet Kidula, Kato Change and Jonas Nyacomba, some of the best friends anyone can ever have, for their unmeasurable support. We can’t go without mentioning our awesome partners Katungulu Mwendwa and SOKO who entrusted us with some of their most precious pieces which really tied the whole concept together. Asanteni 🙂
