Photo Days at the Cat Survival Trust

The Cat Survival Trust is a unique place with a wide range of Big Cats from snow leopards, to Amur leopards and a jaguar; plus some smaller wild cats. We are delighted to be able to offer Photo Days here.

On the Photo Day you will have the opportunity to take photos of the big and small wild cats at the Cat Survival Trust, a venue that is generally not open to the public. Participants on our Photo Days will have access to advice by our professional photographer on any photography aspects throughout the day.

We start the Photo Day off with a brief introduction (including a health and safety briefing). During this we will find out what aspects our participants would like to get help with. Through this we ensure that participants of all levels will be able to get the support, they need on the day.

We have the following Photo Days scheduled at the Cat Survival Trust for 2017 & 2018:
Big and Small Wild Cats Photo Day
7 October 2017
(Saturday) - availability > 3 spaces
18 March 2018 (Sunday) - availability > 3 spaces
18 May 2018 (Friday) - availability > 3 spaces
14 July 2018 (Saturday) - availability > 3 spaces
7 September 2018 (Friday) - availability > 3 spaces
10 November 2018 (Saturday) - availability > 3 spaces

British Wildlife Photo Days from the Hide
22 April 2018
(Sunday) - availability > 3 spaces
14 October 2018 (Sunday) - availability > 3 spaces

All of the above-mentiond photo days are open to all experience levels.

We limit the number of participants at the Cat Survival Trust to a maximum of 10 participants per Photo Day (minimum of 4 participants). The maximum number of participants is applied to ensure that everyone can get one-to-one advice on photography aspects while we go around, and everyone will get a good position, and with this good photo opportunities.

The price for these photography experiences is £110 per person
(£124 from October 2017; for events in 2018); including a 45% contribution to the Cat Survival Trust (helping with the keeping of the cats and other work of the trust). This fee includes, besides the availability of advice on all photographic aspects and the guided tour, a welcome drink (tea/coffee) and lunch. In addition to this, the fee for all our Photo Days at this venue includes a 1-year membership of the Cat Survival Trust; meaning you will be able to return to the trust during this period (day and time to be pre-arranged).

The Photo Days will generally start at 10.00am and will finish at 4.00pm. The only exception is the Photo Day in the hide at the Cat Survival Trust. We are still looking into the best approach, but will take into consideration that most mammal species are more likely to be seen during dusk and dawn. This means an early start or late finish on this Photo Day/Workshop is likely.
