Photo stories

I am a photographer in love with nature. I love to capture the beautiful, the odd and the quirky of my lovely country Malawi and beyond through words, photography and sometimes video.

I primarily create personal stories around destinations and events. I also work with businesses and organisations to develop content for their online platforms or capture their events.

I am open to collaborations!

I am interested in partnering and collaborating with brands, tourism players, conservation initiatives, bloggers, photographers, content creators and brands on storytelling, photography and content development projects in Malawi and the southern Africa region.

I would love to expand the African narrative around tourism, travel, local conservation efforts and the continent’s people and culture.

If you are interested, I would love to hear from you!
