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.

Photo of the Day - Sea Lions


Rise Above The Rest

Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

Phase One DF+ camera, IQ280 80mp digital back, 75-150mm lens @ 80mm. 1/400 sec @ f/8, ISO 100


After many trips to the Galápagos Islands over the past decade, I have had great difficulty trying to anticipate and identify those unique moments that transcend anything more than a grab shot. I have to admit that it is a difficult place to photograph for me, as my visual storytelling ‘look’ or ‘style’ tends to be with wider angle lenses in an attempt to include the environment as much as the subject itself. On this day we spent our entire afternoon outing on a soft sand beach, and on this beach were about 75 individual sea lions. Sea lions primarily feed at night, and during the day they are typically inactive and usually sleeping. These sea lions were lying in a row, and I took some time to sit there and observe and enjoy the amazing light. This large male woke up, stretched his body and neck, and eventually found a new place to relax. Boom. Time to take a quick frame.
