Breakout Session | Camera Trapping for High Quality Wildlife Images
Roy Dunn is a retired electrical engineer and has been photographing for 35 years, camera trapping for 29 of them. His first camera trap was a system he designed and built himself in 1989 to capture images of the Eurasian badger (Meles meles). Subsequently, he has used camera trapping to capture images of hummingbirds, songbirds, insects in flight, and just about every urban nocturnal animal you can think of—owls, vultures, skunks, foxes, coyotes, and bobcats. He now concentrates on helping conservation efforts of Southern Californian mountain lions.
Roy has a long history of high-speed imaging and currently consults for a high-speed video company, along with Cognisys Inc., the world leader in camera trapping equipment. Mostly known for his high-speed flash techniques that enable incredible images of hummingbirds in flight, Roy has delivered workshops and seminars for Canon, and has helped out at the prestigious High-Speed Imaging Course held almost annually at the famous Edgerton Labs at MIT. Currently, he spends about 90% of his photographic time camera trapping mountain lions, and has developed techniques that can provide a breathtaking glimpse into their hidden world.
