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.

10 Trillion Dollar Zimbabwe note. What's in YOUR wallet?

A friend of mine gave this to me a few months ago. Last year Zimbabwe actually printed up a 100 Trillion Dollar note. Crazy. I scanned this in this morning, before the note gets damged. Kind of fun to see all of these zeros!!

.... and not worth the paper it's printed on. Last time I went to Zim, the government issuing the visas only took US dollars because inflation was soooo crazy. Still, a cool collectible.

That puts my 10 million turkish liras note to shame :)

Cool collectible. I remember when living in Zambia as a kid in the early 80s visiting Zimbabwe when the original Zimbabwe Dollar was worth more than the USD (as was the Zambian Kwacha). I remember during those years watching the value of both currencies pretty much monotonically decrease over the years. Too bad.

Cool. I was in Romania a few years ago and brought back a 500,000 lei not. It is probably worth about the same as this. Cool to have around though!

Nice. I have a 50,000 Zim bill with an expiration date. Since when does money just plain expire? Talk about destroying confidence in your own currency.
