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.

My 2009 Safari schedule

I was looking at my 2009 schedule today (yes, I plan my time way way way in advance), and boy do I have a busy schedule ahead of me. Check this out:

January 2009 = 3 weeks in Tanzania

May 2009 = 3 weeks in Namibia

July 2009 = 2 weeks in Botswana

October 2009 = 3 weeks in Tanzania

So eleven weeks of safari time for Mr. Biggs. I think I need to save up some brownie points with Mrs. Biggs. It's just work, right?
