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,
I did find the time to check it out and I really enjoyed it. My main "output" from wildlife holidays is a large photobook from each trip and I could easily relate to the "7 type of shots" idea that you discussed. Similarly the idea of encapsulating what you want to portray in terms of words and then keeping these in your head when you photograph was refreshing. Most of all it gave an insight into how you run your professional life. Not certain if you had a rough script before you started the interview but it certainly came across in a very fluent way,
