It’s always a great moment when we get a chance to play with our favorite toys to produce this work for you guys. Enjoy some of the images we captured at the just concluded Safari 7s 2016 that was held on 23rd, 24th and 25th September 2016 at ‘Safaricom Stadium’.
This is more of event photography with a sports touch.
I told you guys that I am biased in favour of reggae music, it has everything to do with what makes me happy. So I got this rare chance to photograph ‘The Gravitti Reggae Band Concert’ that was held on 10th Sep 2016 at Alliance Francaise. If you look through my previous posts you will realize that they have played in two other concerts that I have photographed as well. I just love their music and they are Kenyan by the way.
Why I love them is because they are pushing the boundaries, they have energy and they are original. You know that moment you are watching the Olympics and you are waiting for the last kick and you are looking at the person you are supporting to win the race and you can actually see them winning. That’s how I see Gravitti. They are never going to get tired soon. Look out for them.
Anyway, too much Gravitti. I got this new toy, canon 70d and I have been giving it a try especially during night shoot. I left home with it and just a 50mm f 1.4 and 85mm f1.8. for the first time I got to shoot at f1.4 and felt how sweet and painful it can be.(For photographers only. If you are not one and you are getting this, please change your career. You might do well here)
No more vibe, let’s go straight to the photos. Feel free to comment and book my services if you need some good work done.
Its quite late (11.52pm) on Wednesday especially now that tomorrow is a working day. I just don’t feel good going to bed with images of this launch that I took yesterday. I am always excited to see some new brands coming in and growing so fast to be so huge (count on this brand to do exactly that).
I vividly remember a while back taking photos of the the Smirnoff Guarana at this same venue and by then Guarana was just a name. Years later, Guarana is one of the best product out here in it’s category.
Yet again EABL has launched another key brand you need to watch out for. I got a chance to photograph at this event that was organized by Trueblaq on behalf of EABL and ended up tasting it too. ‘SMIRNOFF ICE ELECTRIC GINSENG‘ is a great drink, to take if you want to party hard…really hard because it will give you that party spirit. Take a moment and check it out in your ‘locals’ and tell me what you find.
I shall be walking with you in this journey to discovering this brand, watch out for more of the upcoming events near you.
