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.

NEC PA272W Display - Announcment


For those like me who have been hobbling with an aging Apple Cinema Display and haven’t found ‘the right’ display to replace it, today is your lucky day. NEC has announced what will be a VERY popular display for photographers. Why? Check out these specs:


  • 10-bit wide color gamut
  • 2560x1440 resolution
  • 109ppi (better than 72dpi but not Retina quality)
  • Ability to load ICC profiles to emulate custom color spaces and match prints
  • 14-bit LUT
  • DisplayPor, HDMI and DVI hookup options
  • USB port


If you get this display you absolutely have to get it with the SpectraviewII calibration kit, otherwise you aren’t getting the best out of this unit. The built-in Spectraview profiling solution is better than what you have today. If you don’t use Spectraview, you will lose the full capabilities of the hardware system, which is controlled by the NEC software.
