Review: "I would highly recommend this lecture for anyone interested in either zoology or photography"

Guglielmo, Year 9, listened to a talk by wildlife photograper Sophie Darlington, "Carve your own path: Life lessons from my journey as a wildlife filmmaker" and wrote this review. Watch the talk for yourself here.

Sophie Darlington is a well-known wildlife photographer who is known for, among other works, being involved in photographing and filming many scenes in Dynasties, a natural history series narrated by David Attenborough. 

On the 1st of May, she webcasted a lecture around how she progressed in her career and about her passionThis was one of the lectures on LearnLounge I wanted to watch the most, since zoology is one of my preferred subjects. The lecture itself was delivered very well: simple enough to appeal to younger watchers, still informative enough to interest more experienced watchers. 

The content of the talk covered why and how she became a wildlife photographer. Since she was a child, she had wanted to combine her two passions in a profession: animals and photography. Rather than foccusing on zoology as leading subjectat university she decided first to pursue photography and eventually became a freelance wildlife photographer. 

The idea that you don’t have to work for a large corporate company when doing jobs like these is appealing: whilst being an independent freelanceSophie was still able to work as a photographer and filmer for BBC in Dynastieswhich is considered an important natural history series made in 2018. 

In conclusion, I would highly recommend this lecture for anyone interested in either zoology or photography, since it speaks about both of these subjects at length and gives us advice on how to pursue them. 

Guglielmo, Year 9
