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.

San Francisco LUXE Event at Banana Republic

My friend Stan Jirman just sent me 3 DVD discs of raw files from the LUXE event from a week ago in San Francisco. All images copyright Stan Jirman. A very big Thank You goes out to my friends and family that took the time to come out for the evening.


Waiting in line for my john hancock on their free posters 


...and more waiting.... 


Another angle 


BR took some of the images and had a very nice framed look to them. They also toned them with a blue tint, which wasn't something I had thought of before 


Hey, little kid, want an autograph??!? 


Me, chatting away 


And time to roll up the poster for transport 



You can see Grover Sanschagrin of Photoshelter in the background with his camera, a-la papparazzi
