Our Story

Shifteye Studios, formerly The Shifteye Gallery, is a versatile & multi-disciplinary Photography, Design & Film Studio, Art Gallery and Event Space in the heart of Nairobi.


A space created to showcase a multitude of creative forms of expression, give creative practitioners a platform to interact but above all a space that welcomes all to learn, engage and be inspired... with emphasis on photographic forms of expression.


At Shifteye Studios we welcome creative practitioners from all over the world. Additionally, we look forward to working closely with all manner of creative practitioners within Kenya and as well as Africa.


Our aim is the continual support of local creative talent, creating a larger, wider platform for photographers as well as artists in general, in the hope of contributing to the growing recognition of Kenya's large Art & developing Photography culture.


The space has been intricately re-designed to not only function as a larger photography studio than it previously could but to also continue to allow the exhibit of exquisite local & international art, facilitate scintillating dance & live music events, showcase jaw-dropping high fashion events and serve a meeting point for creative in Nairobi. We welcome you to come to visit the revamped space and get a feel for the new look.


As a Design Studio, we offer various services ranging from brand strategy to web design, logo to promotional design. We understand how integral good design & photography can be to a business and that’s why we consistently deliver highly creative solutions across all the work we undertake.


The Shifteye Studios are located at the Priory Place; a commercial building located in Hurlingham (next door to Studio House and diagonally across from Chaka Place). The Priory Place is also home to KCB's Hurlingham Branch.


The Priory Place has secure underground parking, 24hr security & CCTV Coverage. The building has wheelchair access to the ground floor as well as lift access to all floors.


Shifteye Studios are open on Weekdays & most Saturdays; further by Appointment Only.

 A leader is best when people barely know he exists when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

 Every opportunity is a chance to learn. Say yes to everything and figure it out as you go. Always be open to new experiences and be malleable.
