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.

B&H Lecture on January 27, 11am-1pm (Canceled)

Update on Jan 21: I will not be able to make it to NYC for my talk, because my mother is in the final battle with her cancer. She is not expected to be with us much longer, and I made the decision to cancel my talk at B&H on the 27th. I apologize for the inconvenience, however I need and want to be with my family right now. Thank you for understanding.

My friends at B&H have invited me again to do a talk on January 27 from 11am - 1pm. The title of my talk will be "A Year in the Life of an African Wildlife Photographer", and we are going to have a blast going through some of the places I have photographed, the experiences I have accumulated and also talk through some of the photographs I came away with. From the B&H web site:

Come and share two hours with renowned African wildlife photographer and workshop instructor Andy Biggs. Andy will share a typical year in his life as a wildlife photographer by discussing the myriad safari locations he travels to in Africa. From the wide open savannah of the Serengeti in Tanzania to the seasonal waters of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Andy will tell you how he travels from jet planes to bush planes and helicopters to Land Rovers. Receive practical advice about how to photograph wildlife and discover how Andy travels internationally to hard-to-reach locations. Andy will share his award winning photographs, along with the stories behind each image, and what equipment he used to create beautiful images.

You have to register for this event, and it may fill up very quickly as B&H is already marketing it. Here is the link:
