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.

Banana Republic sneak peek

"Inspired by adventurer and outdoor photographer Andy Biggs’ serene snaps of elephants on the African savannah......Banana Republic’s first-ever eco capsule collection hits stores for the spring/summer season."

Banana Republic will be using my images in all 450 stores around the world as part of their in-store art program, as well as for backdrops for their summer catalog fashion shoot. Banana Republic has licensed thirteen (13) of my images as part of their summer 2008 campaign, and I am very excited to be a part of their summer 2008 season.

“Summer 2008 is all about city sculpture, very clean lines, and key pieces with bright, vivid colors,” said Rosemary Young, Banana Republic USA’s PR and marketing director, who flew in from New York City for the launch. “Our campaign is connected with safari photographer Andy Biggs. Banana Republic combined our passion for art with city luxury, and used his African safari images in the background.”
