About the author

FRANCIS NDERITU

They say anyone can be a photographer until you get to the "manual" setting, the art and passion that such a career brings forthwith is what makes photography the best career choice one can make. Been doing this since 2009 and it has been the best decision ever.

My work at Nairobi News involves proving online digital content from pictures and videos ranging from different topics and situations one comes across. Events happening around from concerts, art shows, exhibitions and all there is when it comes to entertainment.

Francis Nderitu is a Nairobi-based photographer with an extensive career in media. Currently working as an online photographer for Nation Media Group website Nairobi News. Having an eye for pictures is the art behind being an amazing photographer, I see myself not just being amazing but also amazed at what one can achieve in a matter of seconds when you click your camera.
I like to think as a photographer, you see an image, freeze it in your mind then click away. The feeling of creating art from your images is what gives me pleasure in my line of work.
