Born and raised in the heart of Africa, Rwanda, Herve is a photographer and graphic artist with over 9 years of experience, working primarily on nature, people and culture. His early passion for photography came with his first salary when he bought a small digital camera in pursuit of photographing the beauty of Kivu lake and surrounding mountains. Later as a graphic designer in one of the biggest creative agencies in Rwanda, he managed to upgrade to better equipment where he evolved in photography combined with graphics skills.
