Who is steve kitots?


I am a creative that finds a lot of amazement in the world around me. Beauty surrounds us everywhere we go and I am driven by wanting to capture all that surrounds me. Born and raised in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, I was exposed to different cultures and lifestyles.

Started out as a web & graphic designer, that prompted the birth a design company to facilitate that passion - Jemedari Media - at the same time was a radio host on a online radio station that facilitated the needs for Kenyans in the diaspora. 

After a while, photography began to draw me in, the need in my design work required more creative shots. After my first camera purchase, the rest you can say is history.

Everything I believe has been a great journey thanks to my Creator, parents and friends who have spurred and pushed me towards greatness.

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
— Ansel Adams

I am part of a collective of photographers called Onetouch, a group of photographers, cinematographers, writers and adventure travelers on a quest to showcase the beauty of African People, Cultures, Wildlife and Landscapes.

I have had the privilege of working with and taken portraits of Sharon Mudia (ThisIsEss), Noel Nderitu, Nasara The Poet, George Kagwe, Anto Neo Soul, Gibson Anduvate and Thogii. I have collaborated with Mutua Matheka, Thandiwe Muriu & Amunga Eshuchi. Worked with companies like ChilliMango, Haco Tiger Brands, KWS, International Christian Centre, Oraro Co. & Advocates & Clove Media.
