About this Photo-Walk

This Photo-walk will begin with a brief meet & greet at the entrance to the meseum, where I can try to familiarise myself with you and your camera. Although the photo-walk is certainly not any sort of formal training event, I will be spending time with each participant to help you be as creative as possible with your photography, and pointing out ways to help with the setting up of your camera. The Museum of Zoology in Cambridge University is a treasure trove of natural history and biodiversity, showcasing the rich fauna of the world and offering a glimpse into the history of evolutionary biology. It houses over a million specimens, including the famous collection of Charles Darwin, whose specimens and notes formed the basis of his groundbreaking theories on evolution. Visitors can explore the diverse collection of animals, from the tiniest insects to the largest mammals, and see how they are all connected through the complex web of life. With interactive exhibits and a spacious and airy design, the Museum of Zoology provides a memorable and educational experience for visitors of all ages and backgrounds, making it a must-visit destination for anyone interested in the natural world. The museum is supported by a very committed group of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, you can find out more by emailing them at I look forward to seeing you there :)
