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.

The Shot

As you may recall from a few months ago, I wrote a blog entry about a leopard sighting and photograph from Tanzania. We had come across an adult female leopard in a tree, and took the time to wait until she jumped out of the tree. I was thinking that the actual jumping out of the tree would be the best way to capture the essence of the scene, but in my excitement I filled up the buffer on my 1DsMkII camera just as 'the moment' transpired. Lost photo opportunity for me. Well, I am glad to say that my words of encouragement and instruction were being heard from my two other Land Rover mates that day, Lee Sanders and Arthur Grossman.

Lee has just sent me a fantastic photograph illustrating the moment in one photograph. This is a collection of three frames. I love how each of the leopard positions are perfectly assembled. Very cool shot. Thanks for sharing, Lee.
