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.

Happy Thanksgiving

I have so much to be thankful for on this holiday in the USA. I am thankful for my wife (it is also her birthday today), my 3 1/2 year old son Christian, my 17 month old son William, our collective health, my parents' love, my in-laws and the rest of my extended family. I am also thankful for a successful career switch from the software industry to being a photography workshop instructor and African wildlife photographer. I started making that switch from my 'day job' in 2002, and a couple of years later I was leading six safaris each year and had lectures across the country. I have so much to be thankful for, both personally and professionally.

What are you thankful for?
