Andy Biggs is an avid adventurer, teacher, and landscape photographer whose photography celebrates the African landscape and its rich wildlife, people, and culture. With a deep respect and understanding for African wildlife, Andy unfolds the world of the Serengeti onto our doorstep with breathtaking accuracy and striking emotional depth.
His photographic safaris allow the traveler to not only enhance their understanding of photography, lighting, and wildlife, but to develop a lifelong admiration for Tanzania's beauty and culture. His travels have taken him all over the world, yet he, "...fell in love with Tanzania from the start. I love the people, the landscape and the animals. It's a magical place that, especially through a photographer's eye, is truly inspiring."
A former software engineer, Andy gave up the corporate world in order to devote more time to his true passion for photography. Andy uses camera formats ranging from 35mm, to 4x5" large format, to the latest in digital camera technologies. He resides in Houston, Texas, when he is not out photographing in Tanzania or in the American Southwest. Andy makes it a priority to shoot when the light is most dramatic as he believes photographs taken within the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset, known as the 'magical hours', inspire photographs of the greatest emotional depth.
