Researcher Says Giant Crabs Keep Stealing and Destroying Her Cameras

A researcher on Christmas Island—an Australian Territory in the Indian Ocean—is losing thousands of dollars worth of camera gear to theft and vandalism. But it's not humans that are to blame, her gear is being stolen and destroyed by the aptly named 'Robber Crab,' the world's largest arthropod.

Watch Two Tiny Owls Discover and Take Out a Wildlife Camera

The UK's Hawk Conservancy Trust recently earned quite a bit of attention for their cause when a pair of Burrowing Owls they were trying to document discovered their hidden camera. The resulting video, which shows the owls "taking out" the camera, makes for a humorous entry in the battle of man vs beast.

Crab Tries to Steal GoPro, Reinforces Our Belief that Animals Love Action Cams

We're starting to suspect that wild animals the world over are collecting action cams for some nefarious plot... well, either that or wild animals like carrying away shiny objects, but we prefer our first theory. We've seen birds, cheetahs and hyenas all make away with GoPros, and now it seems the crustaceans are getting involved too.

Fox Plunders a Dead Animal Carcass and Runs Off With the Camera Hidden Inside

Animals love cameras. It seems we can infer that much from videos and stories we've shared in the past. From Lions to Bears, it seems that animals are often as interesting in camera gear as they are in a free meal.

Another case in point is the video above. Shot for the Dutch TV series De Nieuwe Wildernis (The New Wilderness), the clip shows a curious fox making off with a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition that was hidden inside a dead animal carcass.

Seagull Steals Camera, Films Itself Flying Off Into the Sunset

Be careful not to leave your camera unattended when animals are nearby -- you never know what might happen. We've shared a number of videos in the past of animals such as monkeys, octopi, sharks, and seagulls "borrowing" cameras for their own purposes.

French tourist Nathalie Rollandin came across a camera-happy seagull recently. She was visiting the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, when she set her GoPro camera down while its was recording. Before she knew it, the camera was being carried away in the mouth of an artsy gull. Once the bird was a safe distance away, it set the camera down and recorded some beautiful footage of itself flying away into the sunset.

The Art of the Portrait: My Journey to 100 Portraits in 100 Days

As a junior in high school in 1997, when I was deciding which path I wanted to go down, fine arts or photography, things were pretty simple. Did I want to express myself with a camera or a pencil? Inspired by masters like Annie Leibovitz and David LaChapelle, I opted for the camera.

All I wanted to do was create beautiful images for a living. By signing up for a degree in fine art photography, little did I know what lay ahead for me.

Pulitzer Winning Photographer David Turnley’s Advice to a Class of Photojournalism Students

I had a wonderful opportunity today in that I got to enjoy the company of Pulitzer Prize-winner photojournalist David Turnley in the setting of my very own classroom. He was very personable, very intelligent, and even made us all stand up and touch each other's faces to make the point of what photojournalists, street photographers, and portrait photographers do: we create a more intimate viewpoint into someones life that we typically (and this especially true for us mid-westerners) don't experience on a day-to-day basis.

Curious Octopus Attempts to Snag Entire Underwater SLR Rig from Diver

Sea creatures are out to get your cameras. Don't believe us? Well the evidence is overwhelmingly in our favor. Sharks, crabs and manta rays have all tried to snatch photography equipment from unsuspecting camera men and women in the past, and this video shows that octopuses (octopi? moosen?) are trying to get in on the action as well.
