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.

Luminous Landscape reviews my Gura Gear Kiboko bag

Michael Reichmann over at Luminous Landscape has reviewed the Gura Gear Kiboko bag, and his review is absolutely glowing. Here are some snippets worth pointing out:

"..Opening up half of the Kiboko bag is much easier than opening a traditional bag..The Kiboko bag openings just fold over onto themselves..."

"Gura Gear seems to have found the elusive holy grail, a bag this is both well designed for travel and well designed to work out of."

"What I particularly like about the design is that in addition to the required comfort and support, when not in use all of the belts and straps tuck away out of sight so that they can't get caught on airline conveyor system if the bag is checked. Very nicely designed."

You can read Michael's complete review online at Luminous Landscape's web site.
