Event Photography


Today i had a great opportunity to cover the press Conference for Tigo & Reach for Change. They were announcing the winners for the campaign they were having to get 3 social entrepreneurs who have good ideas that will help change lives of children in their communities.

It was great honour to meet the three winners and take their pictures, one thing i can say i really love about them was their enthusiasm, kindness and joy, they truly made my day. As i got to know them i found out that two of them were from Moshi and one from Arusha, what a great coincidence because i am originally from Moshi even though i was born in dar es salaam (cause of my parents), and in my younger years i had the chance to stay in Arusha, so it was great to know that about them.

Here are some of the images form the press conference.

The winner with their cheques of $25,000


OGS Model Management, Is Officially OUT-there

I have wanted to launch a model management agency for a long time, because i always find it hard getting models at time and now that i am Tanzania it has become even harder with so many people saying their models. So OGS Model Management is officially launched and ready to get some amazing models.OGS Models Management is partnering with OGS Studios so expect a lot of work and Talent from both.


Article: Your Wedding Photographer

I have come to realise the hard truth of wedding photography in tanzania and the truth is that people prefer to have a big group of photographers moving around taking pictures not for the sake of getting those amazing moments which the family will cherish but more for the people coming to the wedding to be impressed by the big group of photographers. I ask myself is this right? and every-time i come up with the same answer, NO!

Honestly i don’t see the reason to why a wedding would need a big group of photographers when only one photographer can accomplish the job of many. My conclusion is that tanzanian culture is one whereby people like to have the WOW! effect! whats the WOW! effect?, you ask, Its when you have an event and to make it seem WOW! you get a lot of photographers, and i really don’t see a reason to why a person would want to have the WOW! effect for their wedding. I see weddings as an event that is personal to a family, an event whereby small moments occur and are meant to be captured. If you have the WOW! effect in a wedding then people end up keeping there guard up and you find that most of the pictures a photographer can get are of people posing not of people in their natural moment of either laughter & joy.

Below are examples from a photographer called Anastasia Volkova: Wedding photography done by one photographer with an eye. 🙂

There is also the pre or post wedding photo-shoot for just the couple, something i think all weddings in Tanzania should have.

Amazing Capture right?

Capturing the small aspect of the wedding, awesome.

Brides/Groom preparations is a must.

Again details are always important, can’t emphasis enough!

So again i stick to saying that having the WOW! effect is an old culture and i think its important for families to start choosing more on quality of images they get, after all you want to remember your wedding for all its worth. Fight to get images that have emotions and depth.
