Joshua is an avid photographer who runs an African stock photography website Africa Knows selling unique and authentic African Stock images. For the last 10 years, he has travelled extensively, shooting stills for editorial and commercial clients in Africa. He also finds time to work on personal projects. He is based in Nairobi, Kenya where he lives with his wife and two children.


A graduate of Architecture from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, Joshua loves taking images of buildings,  cityscapes, landscapes and the human activity around these spaces. His keen eye and instinct has been instrumental in helping him take very personal portraits which he strives to capture the personality and essence of the subject. 


A believer in the African proverb, "Until the Story of the hunt is told by the Lion, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter." Being able to have Africans document their perspective of the continent is an important way to provide a balanced view of Africa.


He also runs a digital marketing agency, Pamoja Media and is a 2009 TEDFellow.
