- The pillar of our Kilimarathon productions. Lourens has been with us since inception in 2003. His original career was as a Flight Steward aboard long haul airlines, and then he discovered his creative and talented side and took up camera work full time.
- Having traveled all over Africa on numerous shoots, he’s climbed Kili, rafted down the Zambezi, sat with Gorilla’s in Rwanda and fished in the Nile. He is also not afraid of having a few cold lagers after a long hard day in the sun.
- Lourens is normally our Lead Women’s cameraman on the Full Marathon. He tracks them round the entire route and then heads into the stadium to do the sponsors and winners interviews.
- He has started nurturing and passing on his wonderful skills to his son, who is following in his footsteps and doing some amazing camerawork too.
- Our very adventurous and talented camera lady. She was the only woman in a predominately male industry for a long time, especially when it came to filming marathons off the back of motor bikes. Nerves of steel and a very steady hand. Always getting the unexpected shot, from a close up to an awesome Slow Motion sequence, she is brilliant.
- Annalie is a mother of 2 and runs her own successful photography business in Harties.
- On our productions, Annalie normally follows the leading ladies in the 21km event, as one needs a sharp eye to pick them out of the male running packs and a great talent and skill to not lose focus or track of them.
- Local Tanzania from the Arusha region and new comer to our team.
- An awesome asset to have on board, as Swahili interviews can now be translated instantly and he brings a local flavour and knowledge to the production. On race day, Samson is on the back of a motor bike capturing the leading half marathon men’s race.
- Father of 2 gorgeous little girls and owner of his own successful editing studio, but on our productions, he is a Cameraman, editor, producer, script writer and voice over artist all in one!!!! Does the job of numerous peeps and seems to thrive on the challenge and the stress.
- On race day his main focus is the leading Men in the Full Marathon, after bringing them into the stadium, he will go back out and capture the behind the scenes stories. The real Human Race taking place on the route.
- The jack of all trades, but master of none. From a camera woman on route, filming the fun run and the Wheel chair race, through to being the commercial partner to the event and the sponsors in terms of the sponsorship elements and branding, to managing the production budget and packing goodie bags, she’s touched on it all.
- Part and parcel of the event since inception in 2003. Loves Tanzania, the culture, the wild life and the beer!!!
