When people think of Nairobi, they think of an African country that is full of tribespeople. Really, it is the capital of Kenya and it has modern technology and locals who know how to use it. It is not that difficult to find photographers in Nairobi. It is a common profession, and these workers are skilled and often do not cost a lot of money to hire. They make great assistants for tourists and professionals who want to work in the country.
Another reason to hire a local is that they are familiar with both new digital technology and older camera types. Some local photographers are fond of taking care of classic equipment that might produce unique results for someone who desires a black and white photograph on celluloid stock. There are still advantages to using film over digital cameras, and it is especially useful in the bush.
