Experience Day: Wildlife - British Wildlife


Join Nikon School at the British Wildlife Centre where you will have the opportunity to capture stunning wildlife images. We have exclusive access to the Wildlife Centre and animals and will be guided at all times by an experienced keeper. This is a great opportunity to get really close to our native British wildlife, and in some instances, you will be able to enter the animals enclosures while under supervision of the keeper. You will also be accompanied by a Nikon trainer who will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate photography techniques and camera settings, as well as having some of the latest Nikon kit (if available) for you to try out on the day.

Latest course reviews...

Wow!! Just Wow!!

What a fabulous incredible day, I felt privileged to have been able to photograph all that we saw; harvest mouse, red squirrel, fox, wild cats, otters. hedgehog, badgers and much more. Super well organised, Ricci was on hand all day for tips with shots but also helping with cameras and lenses if required. I truly felt my photography improved with my new lens from the beginning to the end of the day. Would love to do another day. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you.
