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.

iFotoGuide - Arches Natl Park iPhone app released

My friends Dan Baumbach and Brett Edge have created a really cool application for the iPhone and iPod Touch devices. It is called iFotoGuide, and their first national park to be released is Arches National Park.

iFotoGuide provides traveling photographers with all the resources to organize a photography trip to Arches and make stunning images while on location. iFotoGuide has some really cool features, but my favorite feature are sample photos of locations in the park, how to get there and what types of accessories to bring. You can also find places to photograph by time of the day, such as sunrise, sunset or middle of the day.

I wish this application was available for my first trip to Arches N.P. 10 years ago. The price is $4.99, which is much less than a guide book, and this application will be updated over time. Updates get synced back to your computer. Highly recommended.
