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.

Gura Gear camera bag status


I have been receiving a fair amount of emails lately, asking about the status of Gura Gear. As of right now, the bags are somewhere on a container ship in the Pacific ocean. My standard reply is that there aren't GPS coordinates of the ship, nor up-to-date tracking numbers for freight on these ships. If you have contacted me in the past, I have put your name and email on a list to be contacted when the bags show up and are ready to ship. A complicating factor is that my wife and our 2 year old son are expecting an addition to our family any day. This will be a very very exciting time for us, and will create a unique situation of trying to ship my initial round of orders. We are using an outsourced fulfillment company, and am working on testing out the process prior to the bags arriving.

I have a link on that will capture those who would like to be informed that have not already contacted me.
