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.

Safari Testimonial: Jeff Schweiger

"..I wanted to thank you for a wonderful photo workshop in Botswana. I have participated in several of your workshops over the last couple of years, but this trip was, by far, the best photo workshop that I have been on. Every aspect of this trip was first rate, and well planned. The preparation and planning by you allow our group to concentrate only on photography. The four camps that we stayed at were all wonderful, and the guides were fantastic, and contributed to this being a once in “once in a lifetime” trip, and I will remember fondly for the rest of my life.
In addition, I also wanted to thank you for the help and advise that you provided between game drives with the processing of my images. With your help, I was able to improve my images, and learn a great deal on how to post process my pictures. Your knowledge and experience with wildlife photography really help me in both in understanding what shots worked and what didn't and helped me to improve my photography in the field.
I look forward to our next trip together!"
