Hello, I am Anderson Mc Bain, and thank you for visiting my website. I always like to say I wear many hats, and one of them lets me enjoy writing. I have published a book of short tales and some of my favorite food photos. The book hopes to encourage anyone who wants to give up when they are persevering at anything, but especially when learning something new. 

I share stories about encounters I had when I was learning to cook and other food stories. Triumphantly, the photos are of meals I prepared, and I am thankful I did not give up along the way. 

My book can be purchased by visiting Amazon’s website. Just click the link below. Please leave a comment on the book’s page; I would appreciate it. 

I first got interested in photography as a child. We were given Viewmasters, and they opened a photographic world. I was born in Trinidad, on the beautiful twin island of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It is a marvelous place that presents countless photographic opportunities.

I got my first camera, a 110 Kodak film camera, and started taking beautiful photographs. The camera was stolen, but don’t get me started about that. Some of the famous people whose photographs I took with that camera are:



Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (the late). 





  Wendy Fitzwilliams

       (Ms. Trinidad and Tobago and Ms. Universe 1998) 

  Derrick Achong 

(Actor from the Movie Amistad) – That’s me in the picture with Mr. Achong

Mr. Nelson Mandela came to Trinidad, and I got the opportunity to stand very close to him. Had I put my hand out, I could have touched him. Unfortunately, those are the only memories I have of that momentous occasion, as the photos I took or attempted to take did not print. We were instructed not to use flash because Mr. Mandela’s eyes were sensitive. As a result of all his years of being innocently locked up in prison.

A basic understanding of photography would have assisted me in taking the photos properly. This encouraged me to study photography formally. I entered the University of the West Indies School of Continuing Studies (now UWI Open Campus) and pursued both Level 1 and Level 2 photography. I also hold a certificate in Mass Media and Communication Arts hence my interest in Photojournalism. 

My tutors included Mr. Peter Baptiste, Mr. Desmond Clark, and the most inspirational by far, Mr. Arnott Joseph. He was in his 80s when he taught me, and he started photography upon his retirement at 60 or older.

What I like most about photography is the fact that you never get the same photograph twice, just as every fingerprint is different, and this is the concept behind my business, “Imagefingerprint,”. The Business focuses on Stock Photography with an emphasis on Food Photography. I love cooking, and they work well together. 

As Imagefingerprint, I was happy to offer Photographic support to The University Of Leiden-Netherlands, for their Exhibition Entitled “Caribbean Ties, Connected People Then And Now”. One of my photographs of an Indigenous Shannon or Priest from the island of Suriname is featured on the front cover of their magazine, created for the exhibition which was held in some ten Caribbean islands.

You can look at the video below, where the cover is featured. 

Wearing Another Hat

Another area I work in is crafting. I make and sell fashion accessories such as necklaces and earrings, children’s clothing, bags, and more from my online store. Please stop by at

I made the accessories in the photos below.
