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.

Photo of the Day

Lioness and her CubSabi Sands, South Africa. Nov 2010Nikon D3x, 200-400mm, 1/800 @ f/4, ISO 400

Today was a mildly warm day, which is unusually cool for this time of the year, so we took advantage of the cooler weather by heading out of camp early to take advantage of the soft light overhead. We tracked a pride lions into the thick bush, and had a difficult time getting any clear shots of them. After an hour or so we only came away with a few useful images, however we loved watching this adult female track vultures overhead. She was quite attentive and wouldn't take her eyes off of them.

I enjoy photographing big cats when they look upward, as it opens up the shadows beneath their eyes, and it also shows that my subject is interested in something. Sleeping or lazy lions doesn't make for good photography, so one has to find other poses to help get good photos.
