Can a business Prosper without the Social media?. Well… there is only one way to find out!. Today at 00.00 hrs I exit all Social Media Platforms to concentrate on my website. I`m well aware of the immense benefit of the social media, but I`m a knot in the grain so that makes me an exemption to the rule. <<<< DISCLAIMER: PROFESSIONAL STUNT; DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. I finally go time to finish up on the African warrior shoot part II a collaborative effort between Me the photographer, A make up artist, stylist, designer and models. Enjoy.

Peace *insert two finger salute.
I couldn’t manage to post The African Worrior Part II today. So I decided to share this Bags Shoot I did for an organization Called MCF panairobi . The Bags are made from recycled Delmonte juice packs. The client wanted “natural looking” images.
We drove by and shot at whatever location looked good enough. As we were shooting close to USIU a Merc pulled where we had set up.. The Window rolled down ..and tereng! The USIU Vice Chancellor. She must have been informed about us. She asks what we were doing. we tell her we`re shooting fashion and she was like can I join you?.. enjoy your shoot and she is driven off. Too cool for a Vice Chancellor.
I also did a catalogue shoot for all the bag. This one in particular caught my attention. It`s a heart shaped Purse that opens up into a Hand bag!.. too cool for a purse.
Today`s TuesdayXperiment took a team to pull out. I sought the costumes and organized the team consisting of a Makeup Artist,Stylist two male and female models plus a few assistants . I also invited a photographer friend Paul Obuna (we totaled to about 10 people)
We began shooting in the evening when the sun was too weak to fight my strobes.. I wanted to control the lighting and not have a flat image that the diffused light would have given me.
The shoot went just as planned and ended at around 8:00pm. We actually hadn’t had enough but it was getting late. We later hanged out and enjoyed drinks till slightly past ten.
I did additional make-up on post.
Here is Part I of the shooot.
