Our next photography experiences will be the Big Cat Photography workshop at Colchester Zoo on 15 June 2018 and
the Basic Nature Photography course at Bradgate Park on 6 July 2018.

Only 2 spaces are still available on the BCP workshop but plenty of spaces are still available for the full day photography course.

Photography Courses

For a more in-depth learning of photography aspects we offer our Basic Nature Photography course (pre-scheduled group event) as well as customised photography courses and photo days (1-to-1 tuition):

Basic Nature Photography


Bradgate Park is known for its large herds of fallow and red deer, and during the rutting season we will focus on the deer with our Deer Rut photography workshops. The park has however a lot more to offer and we are pleased that the management allows us to provide here also our Basic Nature Photography courses during the summer months. This will provide the opportunity to photograph besides the deer also young water fowl on the River Lin and the beautiful landscapes around this plus a lot more.

The Basic Nature Photography course is aimed at the beginners level; people who would like to get a better understanding about how their digital SLR
(or bridge) cameras work and how to gain control of the image quality (getting off automatic).

The photography course will start at 8am and finishes at 5pm (maximum 6 participants). The price for this photography course is £99; including photographic tuition and support throughout the day plus a drink in the morning and lunch.

The following date has been scheduled for the Basic Nature Photography course at Bradgate Park for 2018:
6 July 2018 (Friday) - availability > 3 spaces

Customised Photography Experiences


Our customised photography courses or photo days are tailored completely to the requirements of our customers. We can organise a photography course (in-depth 1-to-1 tuition) or a photo day at any of our venues or at a venue of your choice (provided they are happy for us to use their premises) .

This type of photography experience is ideal for people, who would like to refresh/improve their photography skills for example before going on safari or prefer to learn without the pressure of other people being around. It also provides the opportunity to spend as much time as wanted at any of the enclosures.

The price of customised photography courses or photo days depends on the venue, its terms and conditions as well as our own related expenses. We generally offer this type of photography experience only as full-day events, but are happy to arrange a half-day photography workshop at venues in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire
(we are based on the border between these counties).

Please contact us via e-mail at info@bigcatphotography.co.uk to discuss what you would like to do and potential venue options. Alternatively you can find out more details about available options and book by completing the booking form at the end of the Customised Photography Experiences page.
