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.

Update from Namibia

We had an exciting day of great light and great subjects here in Luderitz, Namibia. We entered Kolmanskop ghost town around 5:45am this morning, and wandered around for the next 6 hours capturing some great reflected light in the abandoned buildings. I didn't expect to find a wireless connection here, and will not be able to update my blog for a few weeks.

Tomorrow we are off for the towering sand dunes of Sossusvlei, and I cannot wait to see them again. Peach colored dunes, blue skies and green grass. Paradise.
