James Njuguna Mwaura

I am fifteen and my favourite hobbies are football and being a professional photographer. I also like having haircuts. I play for a team called Sanpadros. I’m the only goalkeeper. We play on a gravel pitch. Almost everybody plays barefooted, but I play with my own boots. Shootback has helped me to know how to focus cameras, use the shutter, write captions, etc. I know I am ready to become a professional. My happiest day was when we went to the museum because my pictures were sharp and displayed on the walls. Many people were looking at and discussing my pictures which made me feel like I was a professional photographer. Now I feel famous because many people saw my name and pictures. Others asked me if I was James and told me how beautiful my pictures were and that I should go on shooting pictures like those.
