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.

....Safari thoughts....

I just got back to Arusha, Tanzania after a wonderful 10 day safari in the bush. The rains that are occurring at the moment are creating some challenges, but with these challenges come perfect photographic opportunities. The grass is extremely green at the moment, and the storm clouds on the horizon is breathtaking. We had 87 lion sightings, 11 cheetah, 9 rhino and 1 leopard. And all of the other wonderful species in between. I look forward to another wonderful safari that starts tomorrow. My next group of safari travelers arrive this evening, and I will spend the day out to some Maasai communities to take portraits of the local Maasai there. It should be a nice, relaxing day.
