Ollie Smith is a wildlife filmmaker and camera operator who graduated in 2020 from BA (Hons) Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University with a First-Class Degree. Over recent years, Ollie has worked with a number of conservation organisations, including the Charles Darwin Foundation, the Wildlife Trusts and Wildlife Sense.
