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.

Douglas Adams once complained that the Hollywood process of producing a film was “like trying to cook a steak by having a long line of people walk past and blow on it”. That is slightly how I felt on Thursday … Continue reading
After a concerned email from Ma, I felt I should add some detail to the baby helmet business. I bought one today (half for work, half to wear as a helmet when I’m doing editing) and I can tell you … Continue reading
