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.

William Darden Biggs


Our family welcomes William Darden Biggs into the world. He was born on Wednesday, June 25, weighing in at 5 pounds, 15 ounces. For those that have sent me emails over the past few days, my apologies for not returning them in a timely manner. I will continue to take time off to be with my family, and will be back at it in the coming weeks. We are extremely happy to have Will in our lives, and his big brother Christian is eager to have a playmate. I know they are going to be great friends in the years to come. Fatherhood is a wonderful gift, and I am blessed to have two gorgeous little men in my life. Leslie and baby are doing great!
