How it works

All of our workshops take place outside – allowing our animals to do what they do best. We have two ways of capturing the photo of your dreams. Firstly, specially created sets, made from legally extracted habitat, allow for up-close macro photography, meaning the subject will be at eye level with the photographer. These sets include; moorland, heathland, drystone wall and wetland. Therefore, the animals can be introduced onto the set while the photographer captures images or can be staged, using set pieces. Secondly, in-situ photography within enclosures allows for an authentic shot. Here, the animals act as they would do on a day-to-day basis. Due to this, we have made our enclosures as photography-friendly as possible, such as our sand dune habitat enclosure.
