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 Photos Posted

I finally got around to processing some of my images. I haven't had the time to do anything more than a simple raw conversion of my digital negatives. Out of 57GB of images, I am probably happy with about 4 or 5 photographs in total. For some reason I had a difficult time setting up photographs on these past two safaris, as opposed to previsualizing and setting up photographs that inspire me. I had a wonderful time, and probably saw more breathtaking wildlife behavior than I have ever seen, but there are very few images that conform to my normal look of my past photographs.

Here is a link to my May and June safari photographs:
