British Wildlife Photo Day at the Cat Survival Trust


From 2018 onwards we will offer a new type of photo day at the Cat Survival Trust. The trust has dedicated one area of their property to support the native wildlife, which is visiting now on a regular basis. A hide will have everything, we will need to stay here, watching and photographing the wildlife throughout the event. The hide is currently still under construction, but is scheduled to be ready in spring 2018.

Our British Wildlife Photo Day will provide our customers with the opportunity to take advantage of the new hide and take photos of the native birds, including red kites and mammal species like foxes, muntjac deer and more while having access to one-to-one advice and if required to a more indepth tuition throughout the day. Our professional photographer will be on hand to help with setting up the cameras to blur out background, taking photos of birds and mammals in bushes and to deal with different light conditions. She will also help to spot photo opportunities and to identify the species, participants have seen and/or photographed.

The photo day will either start early in the mornings or alternatively will continue into the evening. The duration will be 6 hours. We will publish the exact start and end times as well as a sample itinerary closer to the date of the first British Wildlife Photo Day at the Cat Survival Trust.

The price for this photography experience is £119; including a £55 contribution to the Cat Survival Trust
(helping with the keeping of the cats, maintenance of the hide and other work of the trust). The number of participants will be only up to 6 photographers (minimum number is 4 people per event).
