Experience British wildlife
up close and personal.

British Wildlife Centre photography days

Join us in 2020 at the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey, under guidance from two full time wildlife photographers, getting up close with some of the UK’s finest species. Over forty different subjects from tiny harvest mice to magnificent red deer mean the BWC is host to some of the best native wildlife in Britain. Our photography days are held when the centre is closed to the public, giving us unrestricted access as we shoot from inside the enclosures.



Richard Peters is a Nikon Ambassador with a style that often favours dramatic light and contrast. He offers a relaxed, down-to-earth approach to his guiding and has won multiple international awards including twice in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. He is also one of the only British photographers to have recieved the accolade of European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, alongside being a judge for both that and other international photography competitions. 

David Lloyd is a professional photographer with several prestigious awards to his name including twice being recognised in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. He is UK based although spends much of his time in Africa, where he has developed a distinctive fine art approach to wildlife that he successfully applies to any subject he photographs.


Due to social distance guidelines, we have moved the BWC workshops from June to October for 2020. The basic format remains the same as below, with the exception that the days will start at 10am and end at 4pm.

1415: Meet and greet with tea, coffee and biscuits.

1430: A short briefing and presentation is followed by group tuition, allowing us to go through camera controls for those who require assistance in setting up their equipment.

1500: Specific species may vary slightly on the day but we will aim to begin with Foxes and Scottish wildcats, then move on to Red Squirrels.

1730: Break for tea, coffee and sandwiches, which are provided for you. This allows us a chance to refuel and also go through photos from the first few shoots. You will have time during the break to ask me for any advice and tips not yet covered.

1800: We end the day with Owls, Otters, Harvest Mouse and to make the most of the late evening light, head into the second Fox enclosure. Those who wish to spend time with Badgers and Stoats may do so, although these are animals in which you must stay outside of the enclosures.

2000: Finish
