Photography and Film
Our animals are well habituated to film and photography equipment, as well as unusual sights and sounds. They are also handleable. This means they can be booked for a variety of photography, art and film work. For example, as models for photo shoots, subjects for photographing, drawing or painting and they can even star on TV with the guidance of our experienced handlers. Please phone or email us to discuss what you have in mind.
As well as countless photo shoots- our rabbits, hamster and presenter Becky appeared in Midsomer Murders episode 'Red in Tooth and Claw' in 2017! Our rats have also appeared in Bizzare magazine with singer Emilie Autumn.
CREATIVE FILM WORKSHOPS
We are pleased to announce that we are now working with Creative Film Workshops to offer film workshops for children and young people with our Animal Ambassadors. Children learn how to use a variety of camera equipment and skills to produce their own wildlife video! Please fill out a form here for more information.
GOING DIGITAL, PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
We work very closely with Peter Smart of Going Digital South Midlands who provides relaxed photography tuition. We have teamed up with Going Digital to provide close up & macro animal photogrpahy workshops. These involve unique, close up opportunities to photograph some of our smaller, more intricate animals and are currently held at Steppingley Pavilion and Clophill Eco Lodges. Our macro workshops have a maximum of just 6 people, giving you plenty of photo opportunities. These are small group workshops, although please get in touch with Going Digital if you would like to add our animals to a one to one session and have them all to yourself!
""Had such a great time with Teaching Talons at a photography workshop. Very knowledgeable and willing to help in whatever way they can. Would recommend Becky and the guys to anyone wanting this kind of experience."
