Workshop Synopsis
This amazing location offers fantastic opportunities for photographing British wildlife. The centre has been especially created with large enclosures designed specifically with photographers in mind. Some major TV channels, including the BBC, use this venue regularly. I have a long-established relationship with the owner and all the keepers which results in us gaining unrivalled access and hosting whilst there.
The centre is only open to the public on bank holidays and at weekends, and then only provides limited access to the animals. We will have the centre to ourselves and privileged access to the pens with many animals, meaning there will be no barriers or wire obscuring your view! You will come home with stunning photographs that would be extremely difficult in the wild, will have improved your photographic technique and learnt a great deal more about your camera and the wildlife. This is a workshop not to be missed.  
Animals available at the centre include foxes, otters, wild cats and amazing red squirrels in a natural wooded glen – you will be able to enter all these enclosures for stunning photographs. Other animals including stoats, weasels, polecats and mink are all kept in enclosures carefully landscaped to provide really natural settings with logs, water and appropriate undergrowth. Other animals available include badgers, roe deer, red deer, muntjac deer, snakes, water voles, frogs and more. This is a truly magnificent centre and provides unrivalled photo opportunities.  
The site is accessed via good pathways and accessible parking facilities are available close to the visitor building entrance. Most of the enclosures are reached over gravel paths, but it should be noted that access ‘inside’ the enclosures would be difficult for wheelchair users because of narrow doorways and rough ground. Wheelchair users or those guests with specific needs are advised to contact us before booking, and we will do our very best to accommodate you.
Workshops start at 10:00 AM and run till 4:00 PM with the keeper and animals, but I stay on at the end to answer individual questions from delegates.
