my first official photography job

Apart from the fascination and passion that I’ve professed for photography for more than six years now, its four months since I turned my attention to becoming a pro photographer. Over the first three months, I out rightly turned down offers to shoot people’s events especially weddings and giveaways. At the beginning of March, a cousin approached me to take care of the photography at his wedding due Easter weekend in Bunyaruguru, the hilly district in the west. My response was at first apprehensive but I finally made up my mind that the time had finally come to be confident about my ability with the camera. In any case. the wedding was in a months’ time and I would have enough time to prepare. Take a look at some of the shots from my first official photography job, a fete that I am so proud of.

almost every valley in Bunyaruguru has a crater lake and so did the one just below the church. Its beauty and calm was not only inviting but also the ideal background for the outdoor photos.

Black and white may be ancient but it still gives great shots

Applying what I’ve been practicing all along; selective focus, on the tape

A big thank you to Emmy and Sarah for putting their trust in me, I’ve been oozing confidence since that day.
