I have been a keen photographer since childhood.  I remember my first attempts were shaky, fuzzy, black and white images, developed and printed in a school dark room.  I used to work with slide and print formats, but of late I prefer digital photography, favouring travel,  sport, wildlife and bird photography. 

I am a registered Press Photographer for PictureStock agency and have posted articles on  the Demotix website.  My photographs have appeared in magazines and exhibitions, including an exhibition at the Kenya National Museum in 2009 and a first solo exhibition (entitled - same but different) at the RaMoMA gallery, Nairobi Kenya.  In July 2011 I had a set of photographs exhibited in the National Museum of Kenya in support of Friends of Karura Forest.  My photographs were used in the Lion & Cheetah Park, Zimbabwe calendar s for 2013 and 2014, and in 2013 I was the official photographer for the Zimbabwe Pavilion at the Biennale International Art Exhibition in Venice, Italy.

Recently I have been working with Mike Scmolke on his book on Beekeeping in Zimbabwe.
