"When I was thirteen years old, my mother bought a simple DSLR camera – this was my introduction to photography. At fifteen I realised that photography was a way of communicating my experiences that couldn’t be expressed in words. From that point on, I eagerly scoured Instagram and YouTube for inspiration and education on photography.
Having grown up in Kenya, wildlife and safari were a part of my surroundings. But the reactions of wonder to my wildlife photography when I moved to the UK surprised me and revealed to me that I couldn’t describe my own experiences as well as I could show them. I want my audience to interpret my work in their own way, to see the moment with their own eyes and to catch a glimpse of what I experienced in the moment that I captured the photo.
I’m inspired by the profound ability of photographs to tell a story; the narrative in a moment. But it’s also the process of wildlife photography that fascinates me every time; the unpredictability, the spontaneity and the technical skill. Now, at nineteen, I still focus on wildlife and landscape photography and I am still always exploring new ways to find the perfect moment, to get the perfect shot."
