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.

British Wildlife Centre review

REVIEWER: David O.

RATING: 4.8 of 5

"A very enjoyable day. Being able to get close to the animals and with plenty of time, provided a unique opportunity to get some great shots. Training was informative without being over bearing. Good initial briefing on settings followed by ideas on composition along the way. Excellent value."

An excellent day at the Wildlife Centre

REVIEWER: Nick E.

DATE: SEPTEMBER 2020

RATING: 5 of 5

"Due to the current social distancing measures we were split into two groups which gave us plenty of room to move around to choose various locations. Ricci gave an introduction with great advice on settings and what to look for. He was tireless splitting his time between the two groups to ensure everyone was well looked after. During the lunch break Ricci was happy to answer any general questions which again was so helpful."

REVIEWER: David G.

DATE: SEPTEMBER 2020

RATING: 4.2 of 5

"This is a day at the British Wildlife Centre with Nikon experts who are on hand to provide advice on the best settings for wildlife photography tailored to your model of camera. You get to go inside the enclosures with the Keepers giving good vantage points and enabling you to get close to the subject for taking photographs. The range of animals is superb, all UK carnivore species are present e.g. fox, Scottish wildcat, weasel and many others including otters and my favourite the red squirrels."

The keepers were knowledgeable and helpful, and Ricci was very attentive to the varying needs of the members of the group. I learnt some new techniques and got some fantastic shots!"
