Comoro Islands

Amina Chitembo is a business coach and motivational speaker who actually lives on my road. She's trained with one of the best in the business - one of my heroes - Brendan Burchard.

She got in touch with me about photographing one of her training weekends and I was instantly excited to be involved. I asked about her heritage and I was doubly excited when she said she was from Zambia and her husband Ali is from The Cormoro Islands! I quickly offered to do their business headshots for them both.

As a student of Brendan Burchard I think Amina understood my ManKIND project better than most. Like me, Amina wants to push herself and be the best person she can.

I was delighted with her kind review after she'd seen the photographs:

"Dan is truly the most helpful photographer I went to him asking for photography for a seminar I am hosting and as soon as I told him where I came from he told me about his Mankind Project and offered to do my professional headshots for free. I went in with my husband expecting 1 photo each. He surprised us with a full photo shoot. Wow! Words can't express how grateful we are. Dan you are amazing, professional and very kind. Thank you. I will certainly be doing more business with you. Keep up with the Mankind Project if I can be of any help I will be there. Highly recommended. The photos are perfect even without retouching. We found it hard to choose!!!"

Meeting wonderful people like Amina and Ali are a huge part of what my ManKIND project is all about. Long may my adventures continue...

...I mean seriously, how many opportunities will I ever get to photograph someone from the Comoro islands. Yes, it is a country! Near Madagascar.
