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.

New Thomson Safaris catalog is out

The new Thomson Safaris catalog will be out soon, and one of my more recent hippo photos has graced the front cover. Check it out:

Hippo, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, January 2008

Canon 1DsMkIII, 400mm f/4 DO IS, 1/1000 @ f/5.0, ISO 400, handheld

My 2010 and 2011 Tanzania safari schedule is now published for those photographic safaris that I lead in conjunction with Thomson Safaris. Thomson Safaris really is the best safari company to work with in Tanzania, and I am honored to represent the photo-specific trips in our catalogue. We have a few people who run photographic safaris: Christ Gamel, Randy Hanna and yours truly. If one of our safaris doesn't work with your schedule, I can easily setup a safari for you that can take advantage of many of the features of our photographic specific trips: great guides, great vehicles, great accommodations and an itinerary to make sure that you are at the right place at the right time.
