With easy access on the Devon Cornwall border we have a wide range
of established indoor and outdoor wildlife photography sets already in
place. All our sets are fully enclosed with specially designed portals to
allow unimpeded vision of the animals inside. They are planted to mimic
a range of natural habitats with fully mature vegetation, rocks, logs and
established landscaping. While smaller animals are transferred from
large off-show holding cages to the wildlife photography sets to ensure
minimal damage to their vegetation some larger species such as the red
fox are maintained permanently in spacious landscaped enclosures.
Our European beaver family occupies a landscaped 8 acre valley with
specially designed lower dam walls which allow for ‘infinity’ photography
across the water surface.
The outdoor habitats comprise heathland, drystone walls, rock mound,
woodland, hedgebank, wetland pools and culm (sedge) grassland. Inset
features vary but are principally hollow logs, tree stumps or rocks. Our
indoor 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 small sets.
For some of the small mammal photography, and on those wet weather
days, we have a poly tunnel on site which is set up with a variety of tanks
and cage sets. This can also be a useful tool for bright days as the poly
tunnel can help to diffuse the light.
All our days are accompanied by a trained animal handler.
A wildlife photography expert is available to tutor groups and run wildlife
photography courses on request. For details of current rates and
facilities please contact us on 01409 211578 or email us
