My Name is Batanudde
My name is John Batanudde. Sports photography is my calling, my profession, and the thing that undoubtedly drives me insane every day.
I don’t simply photograph people in sports but rather the way they make me feel. Admittedly, it sets me apart as I always look for that special photograph I can speak of so many days after the event is done.
My approach has paid off as I have won several awards including the Uganda Premier League photographer of the year twice in 2016 and 2017 as well as the Uganda Photo Press Award in 2018 and the Sports Choice Journalists photographer of the year 2017.
I wrestle with every image I shoot. I assume a perfect photo story is possible and I want to squeeze it out of every picture. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very, very well.
