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.

Thomson Safaris, Preferred Safari Outfitter in Tanzania

In order for my safari business to be successfull, I have to rely on the right partners on the ground in Africa. I operate safaris in roughly six countries in Africa, and the right outfitter for me in Tanzania is Thomson Safaris. They are by far THE BEST group of people to work with in Tanzania. Here is a quick video customer testimonial to help illustrate.

From both your images and your guests testimonials, it sounds like both you and Thomson Safaris run a first class operation. I hope I can experience it myself someday.

Having been to Kenya, Tanzania, & Botswana on three separate trips with a different, yet absolutely top notch safari operator, I understand what an incredible feat it is to run this kind of operation, find the game, and keep your guests happy all at the same time.

Kudos to you and Thomson Andy!
