About Andy


I am an avid adventurer, conservationist, teacher, and outdoor photographer whose photography celebrates the African landscape and its rich wildlife, people, and culture. My photographic safaris allow my travelers to not only enhance their understanding of photography, lighting, and wildlife, but to develop a life-long admiration for Africa ‘s beauty and culture.

Banana Republic recently used my photographs as the cornerstone of their Urban Safari campaign, and my images were seen in all 750 stores around the globe, as well as in their billboards, catalogs and annual report. I was also the winner of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year in the ‘Wild Places’ category in 2008 and a highly commended in the ‘Creative Visions of Nature’ category in 2007.

I launched Gura Gear in 2008, in an attempt to deliver lightweight camera bags to the market. I was looking for a lightweight camera bag to hold all of my photographic gear, and there was nothing desirable on the market that suited my needs. After spending 2 years with many prototypes, the Gura Gear Kiboko bag was born. More products are now available on the Gura Gear web site.

Digging through the archives...

Gosh, it is fun (or depressing) to look back at earlier photographs in the early(ier) days of digital photography. Here is a quick photograph from a quick stop in England back in 2002, as Leslie and I were headed back home from a 6-week mega safari in east Africa. We had climbed Kilimanjaro, went on a long safari in northern Tanzania, headed to Zanzibar for 5 days, and then went on a long safari in Kenya. When visiting London on the way back home, we decided to be tourons for the day and head over to Stonehenge. uh huh. Not what I expected. Since there were so many tourons there, I decided to scope out some street shooting kind of shots. I thought it was kind of funny to see 3 people on a bench, all listening to the audio tour of the famous landmark.


Taken with a Canon EOS D30, 16-35mm lens.
