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.

Workshop opportunity in Moab, Utah

Since I am not running a landscape workshop in 2008 or 2009 in the Moab, Utah area, I wanted to mention that my good friend Bret Edge is running an exciting workshop in March that is sure to please all that attend. Bret is calling his workshop 'The Desert Landscape: From Capture to Print', and here is a quick blurb about it:

"Visit Moab. Photograph Arches & Canyonlands National Parks. Learn Lightroom and Photoshop. Make beautiful prints. All of this and more are packed into one, intensive five-day photography workshop that’s uniquely designed to take your photography to higher levels.

During this personal, comprehensive workshop you’ll photograph the dramatic canyons, impossibly perched arches and towering sandstone spires of Arches and Canyonlands, guided by pro photographers/instructors Bret Edge and Nathaniel Coalson. We’ll shoot the landscape in the sweet light of sunrise and sunset. Then, during the day, we’ll work in a comfortable meeting room helping you master the digital darkroom using Lightroom and Photoshop."

Bret has helped me with some of my Moab workshops in the past, and his excellent knowledge of the area, as well as his photographic skills is an excellent combination. Bret also guides one on one trips in the area, and if you cannot make his March workshop you should contact him if you are heading to the area and want to see some out of the way places.
