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.

Ever seen leopards fight? While hyaenas watch?

Somebody sent me this link. Something one doesn't see everyday while out in the bush.

Amazing Andy! Did someone have a video recorder handy or did you use a Canon 5D MII? Even more amazing is how close those crazy hyaenas come. They aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.

Dan, I was just sent this link by a friend of mine. No affiliation to the actual taking the video, unfortunately. I would have loved to be there!

Andy, thanks for posting that!. How cool that must have been to watch; like the WWE of the leopard wrestling world with the guest referees just waiting to pounce!
Love your Mombo leopard shot!

WOW!! That is just unreal. Too bad the Leopards didn't turn on the hyenas!

Hi, I was the lucky one who filmed the leapoerds fighting. I was using a Cannon 10x IS and hit the video mode once I saw what was happening. We were tracking these leapords since the previous day as they were walking side by side marking their territory. it was a land grab with one leapord trying to take territory from the other. Almost out of kno where one attacked. It happend so fast.
