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

Polar Bears on the tundra, Churchill, Canada

Canon 1DsMkIII, 500mm f/4 + 1.4x, 1/2000 @ f/5.6, ISO 800

Just a quick shot from today's activities on the tundra. Our group is having a great time here, and the weather isn't too terribly cold. This is my first trip to Churchill, and now I know why the area is so popular with photographers. The bear viewing is excellent, and the overall experience is very rich. I am working on my Apple Macbook Air that seems to have lost its calibration on the screen, so I apologize if the image isn't up to snuff. It's like stabbing in the dark when one is working on an unprofiled laptop computer. I will replace the image when I return home with a better processed one.

I have read about your Churchill experience with interest Andy, have always wanted to go there. I just had to comment on this particular image because I think it is my favorite of those you have posted. Very elegant composition.
