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.

IP: joshliphoto@gmail.comURL: http://www.joshli.comWonderful images as always.

Every time I look at the photos I want to go on another workshop with you.

Any thoughts on 1DsMKII vs. the H1?

IP: andybiggs@gmail.comURL: http://www.andybiggs.comBoth are different beasts. Both are awesome for landscape, though. Ergonomically I have some changes I would like to see on the H series Hasselblad, given that landscape photographers often wear gloves. Too may small buttons in hard to reach locations.

My wife says she often finds me staring off into the distance, sometimes my body follows along. ;)
