The Rise Of Professional Photography In Kenya
Gone are the days when a photoshoot meant taking a trip to a photo studio and posing awkwardly in front of a blue curtain. Kenya’s modern photographers are armed with top quality equipment, creative minds, and the flexibility to shoot wherever they are required to.
Perhaps the most famous Kenyan wedding photographers today, Ben and Gathoni Kiruthi, are a husband and wife photography team specialising in weddings.
Mutua Matheka, another well-known photographer, specialises in creative photography and takes fine shots of urban spaces and a variety of landscapes. His Wallpaper Monday initiative gives his fans an opportunity to download his images from his website as wallpapers.
Photographer Thandiwe Muriu specialises in beauty photography. “Much of my creativity is drawn from a personal challenge to turn everyday items into unique photography props,” she says.
These and many more professional photographers have changed the photography industry in Kenya, making it a sector to reckon with in the country.
