This is an opportunity to visit one of the country’s finest collections of native wildlife at a time when the centre is closed to the public and provides special access inside the fox, otter and Scottish wildcat enclosures, with the potential for close up photography without fences or other barriers. The combination of natural settings, a peaceful environment and a small group sizes give you an unrivalled day of wildlife photography, led by an experienced keeper who will present you with some of the very best British wildlife photo opportunities available. Other subjects may include badgers, hedgehogs, red squirrels, polecats, harvest mice and owls.

The day will begin with a talk from one of the senior keepers about the role of the centre in education and conservation.

This workshop is designed for any photographer seeking the shots that would normally take patience and lots of luck to achieve in the wild!  

The Centre is located on the A22, just 10 minutes from the M25 junction 6 and 10 minutes north of East Grinstead. There is ample free parking. The animals are hardy and will almost always be out whatever the weather, so bring spare memory cards and batteries. Almost any type of camera is suitable, especially DSLRs or mirrorless cameras with interchangeable lenses. You will be very close to your subject so short to medium telephoto zooms up to 200-300mm are ideal. A macro may be useful, tripod optional.

Wear appropriate clothes for the day, and a waterproof is useful not just for the risk of rain but to get low down on the ground if you want eye level.

Tickets cost £100 RPS members and £120 Non-Members.

The ticket price includes tea and coffee during the day and a light buffet lunch is included.
