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
Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear – wellington
boots and waterproofs are recommended.
Ground sheets for kneeling are also useful for taking pictures at
the animals’ eye level.
