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.

New Safaris announced

I have posted my late January / February 2008 safaris online, and I fully expect to have yet another fantastic year of photographing the wildebeest calving season out on the Serengeti short grass plains. The most recent census of the wildebeest puts the population at around 3 million strong, and nearly 5,000 wildebeest are born each day during late January and February each year. The wildebeest like to give birth on the Serengeti short grass plains, as the grasses in the area are extremely rich with nutrients, which enable the wildebeest to enjoy healthy milk production for their young.

Come join me on either one of these exciting safaris, as I will be leading 2 safaris back-to-back. We will be visiting 2 locations in the Serengeti, along with the famed Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park.

I will be away from email from January 22 until February 12, so if you would like to book on any of my safaris, you can contact Thomson Safaris directly to book on a trip. Their number is (800) 235-0289. If you are interested in any non-African photography workshops, please hold off on your emails until I return from Africa.
