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

Kongoni, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. September 2006

Canon 1DsMkII, 400mm f/4 DO, 1/320 @ f/11, ISO 160

Have you ever taken an image and processed it a different way about every month or so for the next year or two? Perhaps three? Well, this is one of those images that bugs me to death. I am not sure why. Sometimes it is the toning, sometimes it is the contrast, sometimes it is the crop lines. I just cannot get comfortable with any of the different versions that I have. It is a good exercise in editing, for sure.
