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.

Back from Moab

I just got back from a 22 hour drive from Moab. My drive back home took me through multiple snow storms, sleet and pounding rain. Normally I fly to my workshop destinations, but these two workshops were different. The second workshop was a combination field landscape workshop, as well as a digital printing workshop. So I took my 100 inch diagonal screen with me, along with an Epson 3800, enough profiling gear to outfit an entire school, sample prints, a Rotatrim cutter, and a dozen boxes of 13x19 paper, graciously donated by my friends at Moab by Legion Paper.

I want to thank everyone on both workshops for such a fantastic time. The comraderie was a pleasure! I also want to thank the other folks who helped along the way. Scott Martin of On-Sight Consulting, Jon Fuller of Moab Photo Tours, and Bret Edge. Let's do it again next year! I am pondering my 2008 schedule, and it is likely that I will move this yearly workshop from the winter to an early spring schedule, likely in 2009.
