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.

Safari Recap

I am coming off of a spectacular safari here in Tanzania. My group of photographers had an opportunity to photograph 47 lions, 4 cheetahs, 2 leopards, 5 black rhino and all of the wildlife associated to the migration of wildebeest and zebras. The migration was more scattered than in past years, and we were able to find a large concentration near the central Serengeti, the Seronera River valley ecosystem.

We took the opportunity to track and locate the skiddish cheetahs near the Gol kopjes, and actually had the good fortune to come across a pair of young brothers near an outcropping where we were prepared to have a picnic lunch.

From a photographic point of view, the best photo opportunity of the trip was on the first day in Serengeti National Park. We had a large male leopard in a tree, with an unobscured view. I will be sure to upload photographs in a few weeks when I return from my next safari.

I have a day of rest tomorrow, and then I am out for another run safari on the 6th. Should be fun!
