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.

Hi Andy,
Congrats! You looked a bit nervous at the very beginning, can't say I blame you, but you did an awesome job and represented yourself very well.

Thanks, Adam. I wasn't nervous at all. I just wasn't aware of the silent countdown until the segment started. whoops!!

I watched your segment on Kathie Lee and Hoda yesterday and I was interested in the blue panasonic camera that you talked about. What is the model and name of the camera?

Thank you!

Dawn, thank you for watching the show. The model is the Panasonic TS10, and it comes in a number of colors. We use the camera from the swimming pool to family trips to cocktail parties.
