The Wildlife Photography Centre is an utterly unique facility which offers the opportunity to photograph or film a splendid collection of captive British mammals in highly naturalistic settings.
We have a wide range of established outdoor habitats already in place which are planted to mimic heathlands with drystone walls, rock outcrops, woodlands, hedgebanks, wetland pools and grasslands. All our wildlife photography sets are fully enclosed with specially designed portals to allow unimpeded vision of the animals inside. While smaller animals are transferred from large off-show holding cages to the film sets to ensure minimal vegetation damage some larger species such as the red fox are maintained permanently in spacious landscaped enclosures. Our indoor wildlife photography facility is constructed in a well lit building will full power and lighting facilities. We have a wide range of large enclosures, aquaria, assorted props and vegetation to facilitate the construction of highly realistic photography sets for small mammals.
All sessions are by prior booking only.
