Fenamenal Style

Fena Gitu is one of Kenya's dynamic, young musicians taking over the industry right now. As a lover of art and fashion, she developed #FenamenalStyle, a collaborative effort between fashion designers, stylists and artists to create looks for her to wear to two music festivals. For the first ever #FenamenalStyle, she and her team got together with Magiq Lens photographer George Mugambi at EyeQueue Studios to bring their inspiration to life....

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...

The Change Experience: Aparo

This week Kato Change treated his fans to a first look and listen of his upcoming album with his brand new video, "Aparo". Featuring his eclectic guitar strumming and the golden - voiced Lisa Oduor - Noah, it is a feel - good, soothing masterpiece guaranteed to put a smile on even the stoniest of faces. Kato approached us with the idea to do five videos in five months leading up to the full audio release of his debut album which is yet to be named. We were up to the challenge and we called in our good friend Andrew Mageto who we were confident...
