Hi! I'm a freelance photographer and videographer based in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

I take documentary-style, natural light photographs and

I make short films that capture the true essence of your organization or business. 

After earning a science degree at McGill University and a post-grad

in Broadcast Journalism at Sheridan College in Toronto, I worked as

a television producer and reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

for ten years, winning several international awards for the documentaries

I produced. I worked at the weekly current affairs program CBC News: Sunday

and then at the CBC's flagship nightly news program CBC News: The National.  

I've also worked as a freelance videojournalist, producing, filming and editing

for the CBC, ABC News, Radio Worldwide Netherlands, other international media organizations and independent documentary films.

 

I've travelled all over the world for work, filming and producing in Malawi,

Comoros, The Gambia, Ethiopia, Uganda, South Africa, India, Bangladesh,

Sri Lanka, the UK, the US and Canada's Arctic.

My clients in East Africa include the World Trade Organization, USAID,

The Aspen Institute, Career Connections, Shortlist,

Burness Communications, African Management Initiative,

Zuri Kenya, Cross Boundary, DOB Equity, Samuel Hall East Africa,

SOKO, SIB Africa, Student Finance Africa and Limalimo Lodge.

I live in Nairobi, Kenya with my husband Jesse, our 8-year old son Leo,

and our 4-year old daughter Marlowe.

"Working with Natasha for our website headshots was an absolute pleasure. She is professional, makes people feel at ease and the results were great! We would definitely recommend working with Natasha and hope to do more together in the future, either for our own organization or with our portfolio companies."

Saskia Van Der Mast, Investment Manager - DOB Equity

“I was looking for professional photos to use for my company’s webpage and social media. Pictures that had to be professional, but not too formal. They mostly had to express my enthusiasm and passion for the business. Natasha was able to translate this wish into many fantastic pictures, which I can use for various purposes. Thanks to the informal setting and her ability to make me feel at ease, it was actually very enjoyable and I think this shows in the end result. I can highly recommend Natasha to carry out your professional photoshoot.”

Caroline Jurgens – Lúmina Home Staging

"Natasha took our first “nice family photos” and we couldn’t have been happier with

how they turned out. Not only were the photos amazing, but she made the whole process easy and fun - from scheduling, to getting us comfortable in front of the camera,

to sharing the final results.

We’re looking forward to our next shoot with Natasha once the boys turn one."

Melissa Savvy

"We have hired Natasha several times over the years to capture our family --newborn pictures, first birthdays, maternity photos, and family photos. We LOVE her photography. Her effortless, natural style is simply beautiful and her ability to capture the emotion and joy behind the photos blows me away every time!  Plus, she's fun and easy to be around and is just great with kids."

Michelle Geis

"Natasha has a radiant and positive personality.  She is great with kids and sets the tone that allows for beautifully captured family photos.  You choose to have professional photos taken to capture special moments in time with special people in your life and Natasha ensures the end result is magical."
