  • Will Burrard-Lucas is a wildlife photographer from the UK. Whenever possible, Will prefers to get close to his wild subjects and use a wide-angle lens to capture a more intimate perspective. Initially, he achieved this by crawling up to unthreatening species. However, he also dreamt of doing this with iconic African animals such as lions and elephants. To achieve this he created a remote-control camera buggy in 2009, which he called “BeetleCam”. The buggy soon proved itself and to this day Will continues to use it to capture fresh perspectives in his work.  Will has also developed sensors to detect animals and automatically trigger his cameras. Deploying these “camera traps” for weeks or months at a time has allowed him to capture rare photographs of secretive and nocturnal wildlife. Will founded Camtraptions Ltd to turn his creations for camera trap photography into products for photographers and filmmakers around the world.  In 2017, Will embarked on a new project titled “Land of Giants”. The aim of this project was to document the last of Africa’s iconic elephants with tusks reaching down to the ground. In 2019, “Land of Giants” was released as a book in support of the Tsavo Trust. His latest book is The Black Leopard.    Websites Will Burrard-Lucas Steve Winter   Sponsor Charcoal Book Club   Education Resources: Using Your Life to Launch Your Photography   Momenta Photographic Workshops   Candid Frame Resources Download the free Candid Frame app for your favorite smart device.

  • Acclaimed for her contemporary depictions, Mona Kuhn is considered a leading artist in the world of figurative discourse.  Throughout a career spanning more than twenty years, the underlying theme of her work is her reflection on humanity’s longing for spiritual connection and solidarity. As she solidified her photographic style, Kuhn created a notable approach to the nude by developing friendships with her subjects, and employing a range of playful visual strategies that use natural light and minimalist settings to evoke a sublime sense of comfort between the human figure and its environment. Her work is natural, restful, and a reinterpretation of the nude in the canon of contemporary art.  Kuhn was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1969, of German descent.  In 1989, Kuhn moved to the US and earned her BA from The Ohio State University, before furthering her studies at the San Francisco Art Institute.  She is currently an independent scholar at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.  Occasionally, Mona teaches at UCLA and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
