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.

Awesome interview Andy.

"You just need to be there", so very true!

Great interview and photos. Makes me want to head out on another photo safari soon!

started rough/humorous, but you did a good job of creating some direction in the interview. ... so when did you get the Phase 1?

thanks, Buddy. Just shooting with the Phase One on loan from them right now, however I am looking at picking up medium format in 2010.

As a New Yorker, I wondered where Spencer Christian ended up, and now we know. It was great to see your work and hear you talk about it. They should have given you a bit more respect as to the excellence of your work, rather than "better snaps." I thought you handled yourself well, especially when it came to the type and cost of the camera and lens.

Since when are you using Nikons?
