Photography Sessions

Ever dreamed of taking a breathtaking image of a bird of prey in full flight? You’ll probably know that – where nature is concerned – the perfect photo opportunity doesn’t always present itself.

 

However, on one of our popular Photography Sessions, you'll be capturing some incredible shots in no time (with a little help from our demonstration team, of course!)

What Can I Expect?

Our extensive collection of both native and non-indigenous species of birds means you'll have access to a varied and exciting range of subject matter. The use of our trained demonstration team affords an element of control over each shoot, so you'll have ample opportunity to experiment with a mixture of compositions.


We also have two ideal spaces to use as stunning backdrops. Our expansive outdoor flying arena will allow you to capture the blue open sky, whereas the polytunnel houses multiple dioramas to set the scene for some convincingly natural-looking environments. All sessions will be split equally between each location (weather-permitting).


As our photography sessions are designed to suit a range of ages and experience levels, we offer two distinct options to help you achieve the best results: the Photography Half-day, and the Photography Workshop.
