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


Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, November 2008

I am heading home today after a number of incredible days of photography here in the Churchill area. I am leaving with some wonderful experiences, and hopefully a few polar bear photos. SONY graciously loaned my workshop group a pair of A900 24.6 megapixel cameras to use, along with some excellent lenses. Their 300mm f/2.8 G was the most used, along with their 70-200mm f/2.8 G and 24-70mm f/2.8 Zeiss lenses. I will be posting my mini review of the A900 camera in the coming days. My overall impression is that SONY has entered the professional market with a very nice camera, and I look forward to seeing more from SONY in the coming years.

Andy -

I was already looking forward to seeing your images from Churchill, and now I'll be looking forward to hearing your impressions of the new Sony as well. As you may recall from our trip to Tanzania in late January, I'm using the A700 and have the Minolta 300mm f/2.8 and the 70-200 (you were checking out the lens hood), so naturally I'm looking at the A900.

Safe Travels,

Dave Dillon
