“My voice is more clearer through the lens”
Brian Siambi is an editorial, commercial and travel photographer, based wherever my camera takes me ha!!
Born and raised in Nairobi Kenya my love for the arts started at a young age through illustrations learning from my uncle. Lifetimes later I became a graphic designer while working for our local top women's magazine True Love Magazine East Africa, that was where my interest in fashion photography grew while working with my mentor/friend Emmanuel Jambo. It was during this time I started shooting with my phone and grew from there.
My work focuses on capturing fashion and travel in its element. I love natural light and shadows and how it forms interesting light against my subjects
Always experimenting with new techniques, I love challenging myself to always push the limits of creativity. I'm currently working on a series called The Dark Matter Project that is a collaboration with different African designers showcasing their unique fashion and my appreciation my of dark skin beauty that us Africans have.
