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 are at our third camp out of three on my northern and central Namibia workshop, and this trip is turning out to be quite productive photographically. Our first camp was along the desolate skeleton coast of northen Namibia. There we photographed many different types of scenes: sand dunes, the foggy coastline, desert elephants, gemsbok (oryx), river canyons, and transition zones in between the different zones. After three nights at the Skeleton Coast Camp, we headed to Serra Cafema Camp. Serra Cafema is known to be the most remote and luxurious camp in all of southern Africa. I was last there in the spring of 2006 when I co-led a trip with Michael Reichmann.

Serra Cafema Camp yielded some amazing scenes, yet it is a difficult location to capture in photographs.

We are now at the Namib Naukluft Park, home to the tall sand dunes as far as the eyes can see. After three nights here, I will head back to Windhoek to say goodbye to John Paul and the rest of the workshop group. I will head out with my second group to explore the southern and central part of the country, which is no less dramatic.
