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.

I am headed for Alaska

I am off shooting grizzlies for the next 6 days, photographing grizzly bears in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. The workshop will only consist of 6 people, and from all the news I am hearing from the area, the photographic opportunities should be stellar. The flight to Anchorage will be over 7 hours long, and my mp3 player recently cratered on me. Not good. But that gives me time to do some writing for a book I have been working on for over 2 years. Essentially a 'how-to' book on how to photograph with digital equipment out on safari.

When I return, I will be posting a few more 2007 safaris online, 1 of which will be an alumni safari in late September 2007 with 100% luxury camping in remote areas (with electricity, of course). We will also head down south to the Selous in southern Tanzania. I will have 2 other safaris that will be announced: 1 in June 2007 and 1 in early September 2007.
