Lilongwe, January 17, 2019: One of the famous freelance photojournalists in the country popularly known as Ras Peter Kansengwa has embarked on free provision of pictorial trainings to people regardless of age, qualification and religion among others.

Kansengwa who is based in Lilongwe, disclosed this to Malawi News Agency (Mana) in an interview on Sunday, during his home coming party from India at Botanic garden in the city.

Kansengwa went to India last year for studies in Information Communications and Technology (ICT), photographic and Sociology; hence he thought it wise to share the skills and knowledge from his studies to Malawians free of charge.

“I want to impart photographic capacity building to both young and older people on how they can take good and quality photos right at their own specific place within and outside the city,” he said.

Furthermore, he pointed out that those interested should contact him through WhatsApp, facebook and twitter, just to mention a few.

The 2016 best award winning photographer added that pictorial coaching that will be provided to people would help them work in a professional manner and change their personal lives.

“The lessons will help them create their own business which can also give a chance to create jobs for others and have a chance to be employed by public and private sectors in the country,” he said.

More than ten people within and outside Lilongwe district have shown interest to attend the lessons.

In a separate interview, Chimwemwe Banda from Area 23, Lilongwe, said she is interested to join the lessons which she noted would help her take photos professionally.

“I used to take photos anyhow, without knowing that it requires skills including focus and light management among others. So due to these classes, I will sharpen and improve my skills in taking the photos,” Banda said.
