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 the Galapagos islands

I had a wonderful time on board the M/Y Letty in the Galapagos islands, along with 17 other people in my group. I cannot tell you how amazing Galapagos is, with so many different unique species to witness and photograph, as well as the casual setting aboard our private motor yacht. We had absolutely fantastic weather, as well as two of the best naturalists in the business. I will be sifting through my 40GB of images over the next few days, picking out my favorites to share. I have processed a few images on my Macbook, but I need to reprocess them on my Mac Pro desktop to be compliant with my Lightroom workflow that I have adopted.

For those that joined me on this trip, thank you so very much for making my belly ache from so much laughter.
