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.

Safari Testimonial: Jose Antonio Rosas

"I was on Andy's July 2009 Botswana safari, and could not have asked for a better experience. Every aspect of the trip was designed to maximize the photo opportunities for photographers of all levels. The safari operator, the choice of camps, and the guides were all outstanding. And most important of all, Andy himself made sure that this was a great experience for everyone. He clearly knows and cares for the African wildlife, and has his guests' enjoyment and learning as his top priorities. My appreciation for life in the African bush and my wildlife photography skills have grown siginficantly after this safari. The only choice I have to make for my next photo trip is which of Andy's safaris to take."
