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.

Photo of the Day

Mind the Gap, London, England. October 2008

Canon G9, processed in Adobe Lightroom 2.1 with gratuitous vignetting, contrast, saturation and clarity adjustments.

Just a quick photo from the day in the underground. Totally playing around as a tourist today. My having the Canon G9 in my pocket is kind of fun, and I am thinking of upgrading to the newer G10 or the Panasonic LX3. One thing that is great about the G9 and G10 is the control dials and buttons are well placed and easy to use. This is great if you shoot in Manual or Aperture Priority mode, which is my preference. However, the LX3 is better suited if you are looking for a camera that can fit in your jeans pocket, as it is much thinner. My hunch is that I will end up buying the LX3, as I am interested in HD video and also a camera that will fit in my pocket.
