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.

Africa Video Safaris. Any interest?

I have been kicking around the idea of offering African safaris for those who shoot exclusively with video. There are a number of challenges in this area, mostly relating to equipment: proper stabilization for each person for their video gear. A proper tripod with a fluid head is essential for good quality video, and I have the vehicles, knowhow and staff to make it happen. In fact, trips can be co-led by myself and a person in the video production industry. I just don't have a good grasp on how large the market is. One thing is for sure: video is an increasing market, and I anticipate in the next 5 years that many still photographers will be shooting with video equipment for their still images. We will be able to extract 1 frame out of 30 frames in a second, at a resolution high enough to produce A3 or larger sized prints (12x18 or larger).

Drop me a line if you are interested in participating in an African video safari.
