Experience British wildlife
up close and personal.

British Wildlife Centre photography days

Join me at the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey for a photography workshop where I'll be on hand to offer advice and tips as we get up close with some of the UK’s finest species. The BWC is host to some of the best native wildlife in Britain with over forty different subjects from tiny harvest mice to magnificent red deer. In conjunction with David Lloyd I will be hosting this workshop when the centre is closed to the public, offering an opportunity to get exceptionally close to the animals.



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.

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.


June 19th & 21st
The workshop on May 19th is held during the daytime rather than evening. As such it begins at 9:30am and ends at 4:30pm

1400: 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
