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.

A toast to the future from Banana Republic

Here is a nice article on Banana Republic worth reading:

A Toast to the future from Banana Republic

"Last year, BR launched a three-year in-store art programme of selected artists’ works to be displayed in all its stores throughout the United States.

Notable artists who have received BR’s patronage since 1995 include the late Alberto Giacometti, Yoko Ono, Richard Serra and David Hockney, and photographers Annie Leibowitz and Andy Biggs....."

....."Its most recent artistically driven global-scale project was the summer 2008 advertising campaign when it collaborated with safari photographer Biggs."

Congratulations! Being bracketed (if I may use that term) with Annie Leibowitz is quite something, whether or not you always like her work! Hope this exposure (same parenthetical as before) is leading to something new developing (I give up) in the future. Meanwhile, good luck on the next two trips and looking forward to seeing a selection of the results.
