PhotoNetCast #46 – Cameras in the mouths of lions, etc.

by on Jun.02, 2010, under Photography

The latest episode of PhotoNetCast is now out and can be listened to either on the web site or via iTunes. I was honoured to have a chance to talk to Will Burrard-Lucas who was also a guest on this show and a photographer whose blog I have followed for quite some time now.

Will and his brother Matt are outstanding wildlife photographers from the UK who have gained fame recently through their adventures with the “Beetlecam”, a remote controlled car with a camera and a couple of flashes mounted on it. The vehicle gained fame not only for the amazing close-up photos of African wildlife Matt & Will captured with it but also for the fact that it was abducted by a lion at one point. Read more over on Matt & Will’s blog.

After the Beetlecam discussion, we wander around for the remainder of the hour talking about copyright registration, film processing chemicals, how cool the iPad is and whether or not photographers should be removing Flash from their web sites. This was all very well but, after talking about one of the coolest techy photo projects of the year, it was rather downhill from there as far as I was concerned 🙂
