Will Burrard-Lucas is an incredible wildlife photographer from the UK. He often uses new technologies and innovations to photograph wildlife in unique ways.

He just released his brand new book, Land of Giants. Below is the book synopsis to provide perspective:

"Deep in the heart of a vast wilderness, some of the rarest creatures on Earth still roam;

living relics from a bygone era, they are the last of Africa’s great tuskers. For the first

time these elusive elephants have been subject to an in-depth photographic study and

are now immortalised in this book.

Will Burrard-Lucas, in partnership with Tsavo Trust and Kenya Wildlife Service, spent

months photographing elephants in all corners of the Tsavo Conservation Area.

Using the latest technology including his innovative remote-control BeetleCam,

Burrard-Lucas has captured an intimate glimpse into the lives of Tsavo’s elephants and

a spectacular photographic record of some remarkable individuals.

Against a backdrop of escalating human-wildlife conflict and the ever-present threat

of poaching, this book brings a message of hope: that these giants are still out there –

and they can still be saved."

We talk in depth about his experience making this book as well as stories of Ethiopian wolves, painted dogs, orangutans, wild pandas, and so much more.
