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.

Back from San Francisco

I was out in San Francisco for a few days, and I want to thank everybody who attended the Banana Republic LUXE private shopping event on Thursday night. It was a great success, and I was amazed at how many people would stand in line for a signed poster of my 'Giraffe Under an Acacia Tree' image. It was great fun. My friends at Gap corportate tell me that there were over 750 people at the 2-hour event, and based on my sore right signing hand, all of those customers bought at least 1 item from the store to receive their free print.

It was a great time, and I will be uploading a few images in the coming days. Since I didn't have a camera with me, I am relying on a few good friends to share them with me.
