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.

My 1DMk3 configuration settings

I have uploaded my Canon EOS 1DMkIII configuration file to my web server. If you are daring enough to try it out, you can download the file in the link below.


Andy's 1DMkIII configuration file

To use this file, you will need to unzip the file onto your hard drive. Then copy the .csd file onto a memory card and insert the memory card into your 1DMkIII camera. Go to the menu system and select the 'Save/load settings on media' option to load this file onto your camera. I highly recommend using the C. Fn setting register/apply function to save your current configuration in your camera, in case you wish to easily revert back to your settings that you had prior to using my configuration file.

Out of curiosity, what configurations did you end up changing after using the 1DMk3 on safari for 3 weeks?
