Hanging with the pro’s

It was such a privilege to get to meet photographer Gareth Bentley on Tuesday and all the other talented photographers that I’ve so far only had contact with through social media. This was at a meeting organized by two of the photographers, Jason Mutikila and Hudson Chirwa. We all met at the 37d Gallery in Kabulonga, Lusaka where Gareth’s exhibition the “Extra Ordinary Project” is currently displayed. This is a self funded project where he wanted to celebrate Zambians from all walks of life, it is also available as a book. We got to hear Gareth’s journey as a photographer and it was somehow comforting (for me) to see that even the best started out as mere amateurs! We then got some insights and anecdotes behind each of the portraits in the exhibition. As you might imagine with a bunch of photo-nerds, the questions where all about ISO, shutter speeds and flashes! Hudson was behind the camera and here are some of his photos from the evening (in the end the owners of the Gallery had to ask us to leave, think we could have stayed for hours just talking!)>>
