Photography Course Venues

The links in this category are of our photography course venues, where we provide pre-scheduled group courses and/or customised photography courses on a 1-to-1 basis or for groups of fmaily members, friends or any other associations.
Colchester Zoo
Colchester Zoo is one of Europe's finest zoos. It has a wide variety of animals, including Big Cats and many more. The zoo staff is constantly working to improve their facilities for the benefit of the animals and the visitors. In addition to this work, Colchester Zoo is also raising funding and awareness for conservation projects world wide.
The Cat Survival Trust
The Cat Survival Trust was established in 1976 with the aim to promote the conservation of wild cats by breeding them in captivity and subsequently releasing them into suitable wild situations. Realising that it is not the most effective way to preserve cats, the Trust purchased a 10,000 acre reserve in north east Argentina. Here they conserve the entire habitat where cats live. This is not only more cost-effective but involves the conservation of all the plants, animals and fungi that make up the ecosystem on which the cats depend.

The headquarter is in Hertfordshire, where a small group of unpaid staff manages affairs.
Rutland Falconry & Owl Centre
This will be a new venue in 2012. Located near Rutland Waters, in a remote and tranquil place is the Rutland Falconry & Owl Centre. You will find a large number of birds and native wildlife. During our photography courses, you will have the opportunity to see and photograph the residential leopards (yes, the big cat species; surplus cats from zoos).
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
This zoo was founded in 2009, but houses in the meantime the biggest lion rescue in the world (13 lions came from a Romanian zoo), 2 Amur tigers and 3 Amur leopards. Besides the Big Cats, Yorkshire Wildlife Park has many more exotic wildlife species and it was voted Yorkshire's Most Magnificant Attraction in 2012.
