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.

Un-^&*(ing-believable. After decades of seemingly making progress on both wildlife conservation and education, to apparently now have things unwind so quickly must be incredibly disheartening for those guys; indeed, it's dispiriting for all of us. And just to feed the venal appetites of transplanted Chinese workers building roads??

Wish there were more we could do as individuals other than send funds, but at least we can do that.

I don't want to turn these comments into a bashing of one specific people, but rather that this article is a reminder for us to remain vigilant to protect what needs to be protected.
