I am a Uganda-based freelance photographer, and this is a receptacle for whatever I'm toying with at the moment, varying greatly in quality like the goat stew which so often powers it. Personal blog etc.

Dear all, thank you so much to all of those who have donated so far to my Indiegogo funding campaign about covering the elections in Kenya. You have been amazingly generous. We’ve raised nearly $2,000, and I can’t thank you … Continue reading
I teach photography to people occasionally- nothing particularly complex, just basic handling of SLRs and the outline of how to make pictures a little better. Recently a couple of students from the first class I ran contacted me. They wanted … Continue reading
(I was using my new old Nikon F2 all weekend so some film-based images will arrive as soon as I process the films)
Six years and two months ago I was in Lima, aged 18 and enjoying the tail end of a very good gap year. I posted on my blog (which was called Eloquencias, despite being nothing of the sort) something about … Continue reading
Yesterday I spent the entire day slogging through thick mud on a motorbike on a rural road in Northern Uganda in the rain with Andrew Green trying to reach Pabbo to do a story about the refugees there. We succeeded, … Continue reading
I was in Masaka (southern Uganda) over the weekend photographing a rally, and spotted these two birds on a telephone wire. If you’d like a high-resolution copy of this image to keep as your desktop image or screensaver send me … Continue reading
I’m in Ethiopia at the moment visiting some sites for Tearfund, which may go some way to explaining why you’re about to see a picture of a donkey. Ethiopia is very pleasant, although the livestock on the roads make travel … Continue reading
From a photoessay I did about miraa (khat) chewers in Jinja:
I was in the Ssese Islands over the weekend to shoot something for a UN publication on the subject of the HIV/AIDS rate amongst the fishing communities there, and I did the work. However (as Andrew Green, the writer I … Continue reading
I’m going to try to make Monkey Monday a regular feature. This one is from Murchison Falls NP.
This blog has really grown quiet recently. This week I’m back in-office after a hectic period, so I hope I can entertain you all and woo you all back with some fun snaps I’ve collected while on the move.
I was shooting this week for the Barbara Project, which is working with disabled children in the Busoga region. Here’s my favourite shot of the day:
Tomorrow I depart early for Kampala, where I will be meeting a friend and travelling to South Sudan to witness the secession, and the birth of South Sudan as an independent nation. This means the blog may fall a little … Continue reading
Sorry for the lack of updates, I’ve been doing a lot of work recently. I’ll have some images to show tomorrow though, for sure.
Opio Charles and Okello David made my day today. No question at all. I was photographing in Purongo Market (it’s near Pakwach, in the North West of Uganda) and I could hear some really amazing music coming from somewhere. I … Continue reading
The last rally was last night, out on the west of Kampala. Acholi dancers banged calabashes, Mao spoke, we went home. Today I begin the task of actually putting all of these images together into something coherent. I’m trying to … Continue reading
Dilly, who runs the amazing ‘WELL Bread‘ blog. Go there if you like bread. Actually, just go if you like good food, good writing or good art! (She is also my sister)
Justin, Anna and I, along with Joseph our driver, have had a hectic day putting together the Fort Portal exhibition of ‘A New Dawn’, the exhibition of images of Northern Uganda. Click on the picture for a bigger image. The … Continue reading
Well, the campaign is over and I’m off on holiday for a few days (well, doing some work too actually, but in Tanzania instead of Uganda) but I’ve left you all with something. At the top of the blog you’ll … Continue reading
Sorry for the long silence again, my deadline is today so I’m currently looking like more of a looney than usual.
