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.

Tanzania Safari Update

Well, I just finished up a wonderful safari to Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. We had some amazing wildlife sightings, including 58 lions, 14 cheetah (including great cub shots), 1 black rhino and 3 leopard. As we were driving to our charter flight this morning we came across a mating pair of leopard, which is an extremely uncommon sighting. Absolutely stunning. We had 10 cheetah sightings in one day alone, and we had a few hundred gigabytes of photos amongst my safari group on one day alone. Sandisk, I need my commission check, please. Insane.

I will post photos when I return after my next safari, which leaves for the bush tomorrow morning. The weather could not be better at the moment, with an average high in the mid 80's and an average low in the low 60's. Perfect-o. Off to photograph more stunning scenery and wildlife.
