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 update

Just a quick update for those who are waiting to see what Gura Gear is all about. We have received all of our inventory, and are going through some late web site changes that are necessary on the ecommerce front. These changes are necessitating a platform move, and will take a number of weeks to complete. I am also heading out on safari in a few weeks, which will delay a formal launch of

It is very exciting to bring a groundbreaking product to market, and it is also killing me to have to delay that launch a little bit more. Such is the life in a startup company that is made up of pretty much one person.
