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.

Timeless Africa and Colors of Africa portfolios

I will be releasing two new portfolios next week, my Timeless Africa collection of black and white images and my Colors of Africa collection of color images. Each portfolio will contain fifteen (15) hand made prints by yours truly, and will be available in 8.5x11 and 13x19 sizes. The fifteen prints will come in a hand made, linen covered presentation box, and each print will be signed.

Here is a quick photograph from my Colors of Africa portfolio in 13x19"

Each portfolio will have a cover sheet, presentation gloves and all prints are printed on 100% cotton fine art Moab Entrada paper, and the interleaving sheets are Japanese washi paper, which is made from mulberry fibers. Mulberry fibers are a great 'green' paper because the mulberry tree does not need to be cut down to harvest the fibers. After cutting away the fibers, the tree is allowed to grow back.

The 8.5x11" portfolio boxes will sell for $495 plus $50 shipping via FedEx to any destination in the world, and the 13x19" portfolio boxes will sell for $1295 plus $75 shipping via FedEx to any destination in the world. I have only 15 of each size available on hand, and there will be a delay if those numbers are exceeded. It takes up to a month to have these boxes manufactured, as they are made by hand by an artisan.

I will be posting the images in each portfolio box next week.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact me before the full announcement. I am very happy and proud to have these two bodies of work, as I have spent much time working on them in the past 6 years!

It looks like a beautiful and very reasonably priced collection of images. Wonderful presentation idea as well.
