"I study the latest technology and consider how it might be used to photograph wildlife in ways that were not previously possible."

Will Burrard-Lucas is a British wildlife photographer, author and entrepreneur. He is the creator of BeetleCam, a remote-control camera buggy, and founder of Camtraptions Ltd, a company specialising in high-quality equipment for camera trap photography and filmmaking. He dedicates much of his time to working on long-term projects in Africa. In 2017, Will’s portfolio titled “African Wildlife at Night” won first prize in the Natural World category of the Sony World Photography Awards. He was also awarded a grant from Sony for his project to document the elephants of Tsavo in Kenya, which resulted in his book titled “Land of Giants,” published in 2019. His most recent book, “The Black Leopard,” features a rare African black panther and was published in March 2021. When not in Africa, Will lives in Buckinghamshire, UK.
