Toby Strong | Through a Wild Lens
A fascinating talk from multi-Emmy and Bafta winning wildlife cameraman Toby Strong, who has worked on many of the BBC’s landmark series throughout his career.
Over the last 25 years Toby has travelled across every continent, from crossing the Sahara with camels to sailing to the Galapagos, from the Himalayas to the ice caves on the peak of mount Erebus in Antarctica. He has walked with elephants, bears and gorillas, stolen the kill from a lion pride with the Dorobo tribe, stood with Sir David Attenborough next to the last two northern white rhinos, and faced more deadly snakes than is healthy.
From Toby’s beginnings in a small English village, we follow his unique and amazing life to the four wild corners of the world, and his encounters with incredible animals and incredible people.
His most recent project, Earthshot Prize, saw him working with Sir David Attenborough and Prince William on a series that looks to halt and solve our great problems. As someone who has seen the beauty of this world but also its demise, Toby cares very deeply and this talk will be full of passion, extraordinary tales, humour, and heart.
