'Broken Comb' has been one of the most fun projects I have done in a long time. Putting this together took me around a week or so, going over the finer details. I have typically done loads of portraiture work in the outdoors, none of which involved the degree of planning and execution that I put in this project. I had one of my closest friends Happiness Watimanywa and a very talented Pushka (behind the scenes) come in and helped bringing my idea to life.
This project exceeded my expectations, especially because it took a very short time to execute. I believe in trusting the right kinds of people. When you are working something creative and fun, you definitely need people who are just as talented, fun, creative or even more than you. I am grateful for the awesome team I've got, and I am looking forward to putting together more and more portraiture ideas to share with the world.
Inspired by the diverse human emotions, which significantly form the basis of our everyday expressions of love, anger, sadness, passion, pain etc. Capturing these natural displays of our inner sentiments is closest we can get to express our true beauty, beauty from within. Weapon of choice is the Nikon D7100 and a variety of lenses, targeting the art in the way people express themselves.

I was not too quick to jump right into photography when completed my Bachelor's Degree in Computing from the University of Greenwich (London). In October 2013, I purchased my first DSLR camera; Nikon D3200 along with a 50mm AF 1.8f Lens. I took a moment to really look into the tools I had in my hands. Through YouTube, photography journals, books and film articles, I was able to transform myself into a professional in the span of one year. Photography was not something I went to school for, like most people presume. Shooting people for a living was never part of my ultimate life plan, because photography found me and not the other way around.
