Hello there😀🖐🏼thank you so much for visiting my website. Am Billy Miaron, a Kenyan freelance photographer and web Developer. Here, am going to walk with you through my journey in photography.
My love and passion for photos started in my childhood, through exposure to national geographic books and documentaries by my father. But then came computers and tech and i choose to study Software Engineering and specialized in web development. One of my biggest challenges as a web developer was that clients would provide poor quality photos for their websites. Websites are visual, so the photo quality matters. I thought, wouldn’t it be better if I could do both photography and web development? Only problem is I knew nothing about professional photography.
You might be wondering how i got into photography. So here is a little background😀. I started my photography career using two smart phones; Huawei Ideos n Sony Xperia 😀📱. This was easy auto-mode point and shoot. In 2015, while with VSO in Kwali, Abuja, Nigeria, I was in-charge of the IT and Media Team, and using two smart phones, I was able to come up with amazing photos and a video documentary of my team’s journey in the three months of volunteering.
This was my wake up call, to venture into professional photography. I decided when i get back to Kenya, I’ll marry my Web development skills to Photography. I had very little knowledge on photography though, but was willing to learn.
In February 6 2016, with a hired Camera, I covered my first major event as a professional photographer, an anti-drug abuse campaign run by VSO Return Volunteers in Loitokitok, Kajiado, Kenya.
In March 31st 2016, I bought a Nikon DSLR and have since then done different kinds of photography; Events, product, portraits, runways, fashion, car, wildlife and travel photography.
In June 2016, I founded Bmpicz, which stands for Best Moment Pictures and since then, Bmpicz services have been called upon by NGO’s such as Scripture Union of Kenya, VSO Jitolee and Hope Alive Foundation.
Bmpicz now has a team of three people and together we have covered different events within East Africa; from Documentaries to Charities, Fashion runways to live festivals such as blankets and wine , FomoParty and Rebull Freestyle Champion, Tokura Freestyle Event in Kenya.
Miaron is currently the official photographer of Redbull Kenya, the travel photographer for Cheetah Revolution Safaris and a fashion photographer for a number of fashion blogs in Kenya including; Liz Madowo, Jocelyn Heidy, Curves with Style, Office Glam and So you Like Fashion.
I am currently doing multiple fashion, leisure and lifestyle shoots with the amazing Kenyan Fashion n Lifestyle blogger, Jocelyn heidy. We review different outfits from fashion designers and also do destination reviews(hotel n leisure). You can check some of the published projects at jocelynheidy.com
” I have always loved telling stories, but am not a great writer, so i use my photos to freeze moments and let the pictures tell the stories for me” Billy Miaron.
