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.

New Portfolio Boxes Available

I am announcing the availability of my portfolio boxes today, and I am extremely proud of these bodies of work!

I have two separate portfolios that are available at this time, my Timeless Africa Collection and my Colors of Africa Collection. Each portfolio is a collection of fifteen (15) hand made prints by yours truly, and are available in 8.5x11 and 13x19 sizes. The fifteen prints will come in a hand made, linen covered presentation box, and each print will be signed.

Each portfolio contains a cover sheet, the original prints, presentation gloves and interleaving between each print. All prints are printed on 100% cotton fine art Moab Entrada Rag paper.

The 8.5x11” portfolio boxes are $495 plus $50 for domestic shipping, and the 13x19” portfolio boxes are $1295 plus $75 for domestic shipping. International shipping costs may vary, so please inquire. I have only 15 of each size available on hand, and there will be a delay if those numbers are exceeded. It takes up to a month to have these boxes manufactured, as they are made by hand by an artisan. These boxes represent an excellent value, as my prints are normally priced at a level that would make 15 prints much more expensive. I enjoy creating photographic prints, and enjoy pricing my prints so that many people can enjoy them.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to receive on of these portfolio boxes.
