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: Josh Li

Josh Li has traveled with me to Africa, as well as to Alaska. Josh had this to say recently:


Just wanted to thank you for the great experiences I had on our two safaris together. They were truly unique, world-class, and educational.

To most people, going to remote adventurous places like Africa and Alaska are once-in-a-lifetime, potentially stressful, events. You made everybody at ease, and basically did all the necessary work for us from start to finish. The detailed itinerary, packing list, recommended photographic equipment are tremendously helpful.

Most importantly, you helped every single member of the group with their photography. From the on-the-field tips to the post-processing work help you gave nightly at the tents / lodges, your passion for photography is contagious and helps everybody improve. Your hands-on teaching style is very helpful to photographers of all skill level, and you are never afraid to share pro tips.

Thanks for the memories and the great images. I look forward to going on another adventure with you soon!"

And here as some of Josh's images from Tanzania:
