I am a freelance Kenyan Cinematographer and Director, with filmmaking experience in the Eastern and Southern Africa region. My passion lies in storytelling and crafting visceral pictures that are not only exhilarating but relatable, through images that the eye can capture and immortalise. This has been as a result of years of perfecting my craft pushing the boundaries in uniqueness and creativity. I have worked with different producers to execute projects across multiple locations, meeting different needs with the overall goal of storytelling being achieved through my efficiency and professionalism. My projects range from Documentaries, TV commercials and brand films to short films and feature films. I have worked through production houses such as Zero Point Zero Productions-New York, Zeleman Productions- Ethiopia, YCF Productions-Zambia, Docubox-Kenya, Freestyle Media-Kenya, Quite Bright Films-Kenya, One Fine Day Films, Ginger Ink-Kenya, Lightbox Entertainment Africa-Kenya, Protel Studios-Kenya, Creative Hub-Kenya among others. I have also been privileged to train under renowned filmmakers, such as D.P Volker Tittel-Germany, award-winning Documentary Filmmaker Gabriel Diamond, Documentary Filmmaker Brett Bittner-U.S.A and Assistant Camera Jana Fitzner (Arri-Germany). The experiences and recommendations from these filmmakers have propelled me to greater heights at a young age, soaking in many lessons and techniques in working fast and delivering quality. I am comfortable handling all aspects of production (lighting, sound, interviewing) whether working as a person band or as part of a larger crew. I am conversant with different shooting codecs and can manage multiple camera setups. I have access to a wide range of gear (Camera & Sound) and have good mastery in the use of the; Sony FX9, Sony FS7, Sony FS5, Sony A7Sii, Canon C-Series, Black Magic Cameras, among other smaller range DSLR setups. In addition to the gear, I have access to great interview accessories such as the EyeDirect that guarantees eye-contact and a deeper connection with the audience. I have excellent command of written and spoken English. I am also conversant with the local languages in Kenya (Swahili), Ethiopia (Amharic) and Zambia (Nyanja). My desires are now geared towards opportunities that will convert my dynamic body of work from stories and adventures spread out all over Africa into work that you can be proud of as a client.
