Big Cats Experience


This course offers the enthusiastic photographer an amazing opportunity to photograph majestic big cats in their sanctuary environment in Welwyn, Hertfordshire. The venue houses multiple species of big cats including Snow Leopards, Pumas, Servals and many more. Unlike a zoo, the Sanctuary offers just 1 wire mesh between you and them, allowing fantastic photographu oportunities without distracting bars or glass reflections. Delegates will also have special access to the smaller cat house.

On The Day

The day heavily revolves around practical application, with a brief classroom theory session at the start of the day and after lunch. All topics are delivered in a fun, enthusiastic and jargon-free style. By the end of the day you will feel confident controlling your camera and have improved your photographic knowledge, skills and techniques.

The training will be led by a member of our Award Winning Academy Training Team and our partners at the venue.
