“We came away on cloud 9”

My winter photography day visit was a wonderful experience having been confined to my bed for a few days immediately preceding my visit. The keeper who guided us through the tour was engaging, uplifting and incredibly informative in response to questions. I was so grateful for her constant attentions having regard to my comforts due to my mobility issues. A wonderful experience which I know my colleague who accompanied me enjoyed too. We came away on cloud 9 and our octogenarian aches and pains were reduced to nought.

“It didn’t matter what camera I had, the photos were amazing”

Thank you for the amazing photography day. The harvest mouse on the teasel was the best thing I have ever seen! The keeper was excellent and very patient. I’ve seen photography days advertised at other places aimed at people with all the expensive kit. I did feel apprehensive when I arrived and saw the bags of equipment the rest of the group had, but my mind was set at ease by the kind lady who welcomed us. And she was quite right – it was about getting close to the animals and it didn’t matter what camera I had, the photos were amazing.

I just want to say the biggest Thank You for the fantastic photography day today. Jess was a fantastic keeper going above and beyond to help us get great shots of the animals. I would 100% recommend this day to anyone.

“I had the best ever day”

I attended the Photography Day last which was given to me as a present. I love wildlife and photography and I can honestly say I had the best day ever. It was amazing and our keeper for the day, Luke, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the animals showing great care. I will definitely be back next year for more photography days. All the best

“This was bucket list stuff”

Thanks for a brilliant day yesterday! I’ll share some photos once I’ve been through the enormous amount I took. Our keeper was great, so knowledgeable and friendly and it was great to see her passion for the wildlife. Please do thank her for her hard work. All the animals were super and it was genuinely amazing to be able to get so close; it was bucket list sort of stuff. I really liked the fact that the animals could engage on their terms and if they wanted to.  You have an awesome set up for the animals at the centre. Learned a lot as well as getting some great pics (hopefully) but even if no pictures come out at all, the experience itself was more than worth it!

“What a fantastic day we had”

Both my husband and I would like to comment on what a fantastic day we had yesterday. The young lass who took us round was not only extremely knowledgeable, and very patient with the endless questions that were fired at her, but she also showed great affection for the animals. Plus she went to a great deal of effort to ensure that we got the best photos possible. She is a great asset to your team, and really made our day.

“Thoroughly recommended”

I can thoroughly recommend the photography days, it’s an amazing experience! I travelled a considerable distance for my visit and it was certainly worth it. Our keeper for the day, Millie, was extremely knowledgeable and at no point did we feel rushed. It was a privilege to also see her amazing rapport with “Blossom” the badger! Many thanks

“What an amazing day”

I would just like to say what an amazing day I had yesterday on my photography day. It was brilliant to get so close to all the animals. Meg was lovely and made sure we got lots of time with each animal. She gave us lots of information about them all and really made the day special. It had been bought for me as a Xmas prezzie from my kids and I will be recommending it to everyone such a fab day.
