Sophie Darlington is a BAFTA award-winning British wildlife filmmaker and cinematographer. Sophie's resolve to pursue a career in this field was strengthened after a chance meeting with Hugh Miles and Keith Scholey, two of the BBC Natural History Unit's finest, during a trip to Africa in her teens. It was almost a Eureka moment for Sophie when she realised that she could be pursuing a career that combined her passion for nature, adventure and photography. Since then, Sophie has been part of the core crew for many landmark wildlife series including Our Planet on Netflix and Dynasties on the BBC. Sophie also periodically speaks at conferences and academic institutions about her career journey and on the importance of following your passion.
