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.

Namibia trip announcement

On the heels of both a successful Namibia safari in April 2006, as well as my recent Namibia portfolio announcement, I am putting together a return trip to Namibia in September 2008. Namibia took my breath away, and it will be difficult waiting for September 2008 to roll around until I get back to the apricot colored dunes of Sosussvlei.

This safari will concentrate on three photographically rich areas: the deserted ghost town of Kolmanskop, the dunes of the Namib-Naukluft and the abundant wildlife of Etosha. The safari will take 8 days out of your schedule once you are in Windhoek, Namibia. If you would like to arrange additional time in Namibia, I can easily arrange this for you.

The cost of the safari is $7990, and after my posting last night, 50% 75% 90% 100% of the safari is already spoken for. If you think this safari is for you, all you have to do is contact me to inquire about availability. **note** I am exploring the possibility of adding another Namibia trip either earlier in 2008 or early 2009. I will be on safari in Botswana with Michael Reichmann from September 10 until September 20, 2008, which may be difficult for me to schedule around.
