Lions of the Masai Mara – closer than ever before
Will Burrard-Lucas is a professional wildlife photographer from the UK. He is known for his creative and innovative approach to wildlife photography.
In 2009 he created BeetleCam, a remote control buggy with a camera mounted on top.
He travelled to Tanzania and used it to take close-up, ground-level photographs of African wildlife including elephants, buffalo and lions. Unfortunately, one of his cameras was destroyed in an encounter with a lion.
Will recently returned to Africa with two new BeetleCams, one of which had a lion-proof carapace. Using the new BeetleCams he was able to take these photographs showing the lions of the Masai Mara.
Will is now building BeetleCams for photographers around the world. To find out more about the BeetleCam Project, please visit Burrard-Lucas Wildlife Photography. You can also follow Will’s work on Twitter and Facebook.
