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.

Traveler Profile: Steve and Mary Murdock

Steve and Mary Murdock were recently on my safari to Namibia, and also traveled with me back in September 2006 to Tanzania. They recently wrote the following note, and included some amazing photographs from Namibia:

"Dear Andy,

Mary and I had a great trip to Namibia with many unique and fun experiences. We thought our first trip to Africa with you was outstanding but this one was even better. Perhaps most memorable event among many was the confrontation between the white rhinos and pride of lions at the watering hole! You and your team of knowledgeable guides ensured that we were in the right places at the right times to observe the scenery and wildlife and take some wonderful photographs. You are a warm and gracious host who is genuinely interested in his guests and you consistently went above and beyond expectations to make sure that everyone was relaxed and enjoying themselves. Although your trips are designed for photographers, even the non-photographers in the group had a great time. Andy, you are a true professional and we are looking forward to our next trip with you!"
