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.

Back home from Tanzania

I am back home from safari, and I will be writing up a summary from my 3 weeks away, including some gear talk and other misc thoughts on my experiences. It has been a busy week since I returned home, and the major challenge for the Biggs family was that our 2.5 year old son, William, was admitted to the hospital for a stubborn infection in his foot, which was originally caused by a simple splinter in his heel of his right foot. We have him back home now, but suffice to say it made us worried about his health.

Andy: So sorry to hear about your son, but glad he's home and doing well. When they're little, it really gets to you, doesn't it? I look forward to your summary.
