Portrait of Stephen Ouma

Hi there! Allow me to usher you into my world.

I’m a jack of all trades, but mostly just a master of one. I live by many ideals, but the one that makes sense to my life the most is captured in the words of world renown landscape photographer Destin Sparks:

Photography is the story I fail to put into words.

I have, over the course of the years, gained extensive experience across documentary, weddings, corporate, events, portraits, and street photography.

I do all these with the same zeal and passion and strength and wit as a mother would muster to lover all her 5 children equally; all unique, but none more superior than the other.

My idealism, though many might perceive as old school, does not fade. In fact, the more I do what I do, the more it settles in for the long haul. Deep down, I still entertain the notion that I can use my power – and my lens - for good.

I want to transform lives, reach the perceived impossible heights, get into rooms that were previously slammed on our faces and shake hands with the great men and women that strut this world.

I want to, for lack of a better word, “save the world,” and be a resource to others.

And so I donate my time, expertise, and support to local community-based groups. As such, my main client is the international NGO community, I also teach photography every now and then, when I can, to those who care to listen. It may take a life time, but we will get there.

Some of my previous accolades include winning an IMF Youth Photography Award besides having one of my images make it to the top 30 in an international competition that saw it displayed around Austria embassies to showcase different cultures of the world.

I bring a professional touch in every work I set out to do. I live the thrill, I breathe it, and I will execute it to the best of my abilities. My greatest desire is to capture images that express how I feel in what I see.

So, please, enjoy my work. And give me a ring sometime, because life is beautiful working with people like you.

working with Stephen has always been amazing, he delivered on time and is very talented person."Gladys Kiio"
