Robert Irwin on continuing his father’s legacy through his wildlife photography


Robert Irwin first demonstrated a propensity for photography at the age of six, back then wielding just a tiny point-and-shoot camera. But since entering his photography into various photo competitions, he’s become more professional and more determined. Here, he speaks to Australian Geographic about his passion for photography, and how he intends to communicate important lessons in conservation — those first pioneered by his parents, Steve and Terri.
