We are based in Nairobi, Kenya but available to travel worldwide. Food, transport, accommodation and other travel-related costs for shoots outside Nairobi are charged separately.
This really depends on the requirements of each individual job.
We offer commercial photography based on advanced techniques so you can get the best photographs, tailored to your needs and requirements. Most quotes are made up of a photography fee for either a full-day, half-day or hourly rate, plus a fee for post-production. Advanced retouching is available at an additional cost. Our minimum fee is Kshs. 15,000 for a shoot that lasts an hour. Other costs such as travel and studio hire are quoted based on the requirements of the job.

It is an outline of the photographic requirements of the job. While not compulsory, a good brief will clearly state a description of the finished imagery being sought thus allowing us to prepare adequately, determine the creative, and production requirements, as well as give you an accurate quote. It also ensures that our clients receive the amazing final product they had in mind.
We are not a graphic design firm but can work closely with your designers or recommend one for you.

This really depends on the individual job. Most photos need processing whether it’s something as simple as cropping or resizing or skin retouching. Some images such as product shots may need more editing and retouching. 5-7 days is a standard turnaround time on many personal and commercial photography jobs but this can vary. 14 days are standard for video work. Weddings require 30-60 days to deliver depending on the time of year.
Yes we do but mostly for advertising/ commercial work For personal/ family portraiture, our focus is on capturing families in their natural environment rather than in a studio. Kids are more comfortable at home or in the open since it’s a place they are used to. In addition to that, if need be, we can set up a studio on location.
