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.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Greetings from casa de Biggs! I have been spending some quality time with Leslie and the boys this Christmas season, and am glad to be at home for an extended period of time, which means more than 6 or 8 weeks.

I was away in Antarctica for the first few weeks of the holidays, and returned home where I needed to hang the Christmas lights and get ready for some Ho Ho Ho and Christmas cheer. Now that the holidays are officially behind us, I am getting caught up with emails and misc tasks that I had put off since Thanksgiving. I am blessed to have such a wonderful family, such great customers and I look forward to a 2012 year that is filled with unique adventures. I will be concentrating my efforts entirely on my African travels for 2012, as you can see from my safari page on my main web site at

Please come and join me in Africa for an adventure of a lifetime. You will come home with memories as well as photographs that will last a lifetime.
