Meet victor Githui, a student and photographer from Kenyatta University| The campus magazine

Victor Githui is a student at Kenyatta University pursuing Computer science and also a self-made and professional photographer. We had a time with Victor and he was free to share with us the experiences he has had throughout his time as a photographer and this is how the interview went down.

Introduce yourself. Who you are, what you do and where you are situated. Basically, give us any information you would wish our audience to know about you.

My name is Victor Githui, I’m a Photographer, soon to venture in Film making. I’m also a student at Kenyatta University, pursuing Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I’m situated in Nairobi. You can find me at the university but again I am open to outside opportunities within or without Nairobi. I am mobile depending on where you would want me to shoot your pictures from.

 

Your photography in particular is what attracted this feature. I went through your images and they are awesome. So when did you actually start this photography? For how long have you been operating as a photographer now? Are you doing this as an individual or a group of people?

I started shooting when I was 17. At first it was nothing professional but I fell in love with the art. I kept honing my skill even without owning a camera. I’ve been shooting professionally for roughly two years. I have slowly learnt and finally mastered this art. It was just recently that I expanded to a three man crew.

 

What is your inspiration behind your photography? What keeps you going?

The immense Joy I feel when capturing moments and telling stories through my pictures drives and inspires me tremendously! That joy of knowing that this shot is surely creative and that it is delivering the message that I intended it for.

 

Who is your role model in the photography industry? Who do you look up to and why?

 

For the longest time I’ve been following the work of Manny Ortiz (Photography). His catalogue always leaves me in awe and I aspire to shoot like him. Also I like Parker Welbeck and KG Brian (Film making). Their videos are constantly refreshing and sublime! 

 

What are the advantages from the public do you enjoy as a photographer? Do you think the public’s perception of photographers is good?

Photography has become a creative outlet for me helping me showcase beauty in the simplest things for others to see. Yes, I think it’s good. There is surge in the photography industry; it has become popular to have professional pictures taken so business is booming!

 

What are the challenges you face as a photographer?

The Kenyan society has not yet openly welcomed and embraced the idea of Photography as a career field. This leads to a lot of people disrespecting and underappreciating the art. It is to a point where brands and people attempt to underpay artists for services and even openly disdaining their work.

 

What could be your advice for those who want to venture into photography?

Having expensive equipment does not necessarily equate good work. Honing your skills should be your priority and everything else should fall in place. Start shooting with any device in your possession even if it’s a smartphone.
