Will Burrard-Lucas is a British wildlife photographer. In 2009, he created the BeetleCam, a remote-control camera buggy that enables him to take close-up photographs of wildlife. He later created a high- quality camera trap system for photographing rare and nocturnal animals and is the founder of Camtraptions, a company specializing in products for remote and camera trap photography.
An advocate for wildlife conservation, Burrard-Lucas works with various conservation non-governmental organizations including the World Wildlife Fund, African Parks, the Tsavo Trust in Kenya, and the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme. His work has been featured by numerous international media outlets including the New York Times, the Guardian, the Telegraph, the Washington Post, National Geographic, CNN, and BBC.
Burrard-Lucas’ images of a black leopard in Kenya made headlines around the world in 2019 when they accompanied the first scientifically documented sighting of the rare animal in Africa in over 100 years. A book based on his experience, The Black Leopard, My Quest to Photograph One of Africa’s Most Elusive Animals, will be out soon.
