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.

Banana Republic Urban Safari, Summer 2008 video

Here is a video from last year's Banana Republic Summer 2008 Urban Safari campaign. I wasn't able to use the video as it originally came to me from them with audio that I could not use. I decided to just through my own marketing audio jingle over it to get it published here on my blog. The fashion shoot took place in Miami, and the photographer for the shoot was Tom Munro. As you can see in the video, my images were used as backdrops for the shoot, and some of the prints are absolutely humongous. I was not present at the shoot, and it would have been fun to be a fly on the wall, for sure.
