Edwin was born in Plum, Creek, Nebraska, to Francis DuPar and Luella Scarff. The family soon relocated to Salida, Colorado, where Francis DuPar was elected mayor, before settling permanently in Monrovia, California.[4][5] As a young man, Edwin forged a career in vaudeville in Chicago.[6][7]

DuPar was an early member of the American Society of Cinematographers. At the dawn of the sound era, he was the chief Vitaphone cameraman in Hollywood, and he was the person who is credited with devising the means for synchronizing action and sound.[8][9][10] In 1929 Warners reassigned him to its Vitaphone short-subject studio in Brooklyn, New York, where he became Vitaphone's chief cameraman. He photographed dozens of Vitaphone shorts, including two-reel comedies with either Roscoe Arbuckle, Shemp Howard, Jack Haley, Harry Gribbon, George Givot, or Red Skelton, and musicals with Lillian Roth, Hal Le Roy, or various popular orchestras before returning to Burbank in 1935.[11] In 1940 he became Warners' resident special-effects technician, creating photographic effects for feature films. He returned to full-time director of photography in 1950, and helped pioneer WarnerColor,[12] the studio's own variation of Eastmancolor.

Edwin DuPar was also very active in the Warner Bros. television division between 1958 and 1961, photographing 10 different series including 77 Sunset Strip, Maverick, and Hawaiian Eye.
