BSA swagg photoshoot

BSA swagg is a music group from Busia Kenya (the BSA stand for busia). They did their first music which did very well in busia and and across the border in uganda, as a result they decided to leave Busia as they felt being in Nairobi their chances of success across the country will be bigger, their next release was done in Nairobi, they also settle here.

We did a photoshoot to help them build an image and strengthen their brand. Shooting a group is a bit challenging but I did manage a couple of nice images check em out below

NAMIBIAN ARTIST CHIKUNE

Chikune is an Afro-jazz musician from Namibia. She recently got crowned the Best Female Artist in Southern Africa at the Afrima awards. I did a bit back and forth with her manager/producer and settled on the kind of image to give her. I shot and directed the shoot as usual,in the in studio and on location..
The only challenge I encountered was a major collision between swahili and her mother tongue.. an innocent and very commonly used swahili word “nini” is super vulgar in her language. We kept busting into laughter each time any of the crew used the word, the stylist and MUA and assistant.. the photo where she is holding the flower and laughing hysterically i used the word nini as i was directing the pose.

We did a lot of photos here are few of them.
