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: ed.kivan@gmail.comURL:Just curious - Why are you moving to the Canon from your Epson printers? Or is the Canon to complement the Epson in some way? I'm interested in your thoughts since I may get a 17 inch printer in the near future.

Good question. I have a very heavy load of printing on a monthly basis, and I need a high capacity printer for printing a large number of cut sheets. I do print on many types of paper, which means I also need to have the ability to switch between matte papers and glossy type papers many times in a single day.

The Epson 4880 does not fit these requirements for me, but the Epson 3800 partially fits. I love the output on the 3800, but the paper handling isn't well suited for my needs. I would like to put a stack of fine art cotton rag paper in a cassette tray, and then walk away for a little while. The 3800 requires me to babysit the printer, which gets old after a while.

I have not used a Canon IPF printer before, so this will be a new experience for me. I have heard of many quirks in their drivers, and I plan on writing up my experiences from the get go.
