Africa’s No.1 Sports Photographer Bruce-Tagoe in Kenya to capture the spirit of tennis

In a remarkable display of dedication to sports in general and his own craft, Ebenezer Nii Otoe Bruce-Tagoe, who was recently named by the International Sports Press Association (AIPS) as Africa’s number one action sports photographer and also Ghana’s renowned number 1 boxing photographer, has made a significant shift from the boxing ring to the tennis court. Currently, he is in Nairobi, Kenya, covering the Billie Jean King Cup Africa Group III, capturing pivotal moments that celebrate the essence of tennis in Africa.

B4uce’s journey to Nairobi was sparked by an invitation from Tennis Kenya, a testament to his reputation and skill in sports photography. Angela Okutoyi, a rising star in African tennis, extended her generosity by covering his accommodation expenses, illustrating the camaraderie and support within the African sports community.

Leaving behind a highly anticipated boxing event scheduled for June 15th in Ghana, Ebenezer Bruce-Tagoe departed on June 7th, fully committed to documenting the triumphs and challenges of African tennis players on the international stage.

His decision to prioritise the Billie Jean King Cup reflects his passion for diverse sports and his commitment to showcasing African athletes across various disciplines.

“I believe in the power of visual storytelling to inspire and unite,” remarked Ebenezer before his departure.

“Capturing Angela and her fellow athletes in action is not just about the photographs but about sharing their journey and determination with the world.”

During his stay in Nairobi, Mr. Bruce-Tagoe plans to immerse himself in the vibrant tennis culture, capturing candid moments that highlight the resilience and talent of Africa’s tennis stars.

His return to Ghana is scheduled for June 21st, where he aims to continue his unparalleled coverage of both boxing and other sports events across the continent.

As Africa’s foremost sports photographer, Ebenezer Nii Otoe Bruce-Tagoe’s journey to Nairobi signifies more than just a shift in focus—it underscores the interconnectedness of Africa’s sporting landscape and the pivotal role of visual storytelling in celebrating its achievements.

His presence at the Billie Jean King Cup Africa Group III promises to amplify the voices and victories of African tennis players, resonating far beyond the courts of Nairobi.
