Why Choose us?

Trustworthy

We’ve been running events since 2003, so we are a well-established long-standing business. We have worked hard over the years to build industry and wildlife partners, and the trust they have in us means we can deliver quality, well run events.

Knowledgeable Tutors

All of our guides have a love of photography and have been involved in this industry for many years. But more importantly they care about our guest’s photography and passing on their knowledgeable to help them grow in confidence and ability. We regularly call on our industry partners to update us on the technology and keep our information right up to date.

Guest Focused

Without you, our guests, we wouldn’t still be here. We’ve learnt over the years what works well and what our guests expect from us. So, we strive to deliver great workshops, that run smoothly on the surface, but deliver the best opportunities available on the day. Above all else we understand the need for small group sizes and individual attention allowing our guests to really get the best out of the event.

Professional

We pride ourselves on always trying to do things in the right way and our business reflects this. We have full public liability for our events, we are a registered business backed up by the FSB and our animal collection is licensed under our Animal Welfare License 19/00498. So, you can be assured you are always in safe hands.

Environmentally Aware

We are passionate about nature and wildlife, it’s the core of what we photograph, and we appreciate it. We aim to be ethical in our approach to wildlife and compassionate in how we work, carbon offsetting, recycling and sourcing responsibly.
