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.

May 2009 Namibia Photo Safaris

Ok. The last time I announced a Namibia safari, I had 20 people email me within a few hours of the announcement. Unfortunately, I only had 11 spots available on the trip. This time around I will have two Namibia safaris that will be back-to-back trips, and both will overlap slightly with the itinerary. So here are the details:

Namibia: The Northern and the Central
May 9-19, 2009

Leaders: Andy Biggs and John Paul Caponigro


May 19-27, 2009
Leader: Andy Biggs

These Namibia safaris will differ in a few ways, with one location (Sossusvlei) being included on both safaris. The first safari with John Paul will have 3 main locations: the remote landscapes of the Skeleton Coast, the Himba tribe and dunes/mountains of Serra Cafema, and the towering dunes and dead trees of Sossusvlei. The second safari will have 3 main locations, as well: The deserted mining town of Kolmanskop, the Mars-like landscape of Wolwedans and the Namib Rand, and the towering dunes of Sossusvlei. If you have a measurable interest in either or both of these safaris, please let me know right away, as I anticipate these trips to be booked up quickly. Please email me at for signup details.
