Zoo Photography Days

The best possible opportunity to see our fascinating animals at close quarters to achieve that 'pawfect' picture! Learn all about our Zoo Photography Days here...

This is an experience any budding photographer will not want to miss. As part of our Zoo Photography Days, participants will go behind the scenes and venture inside the enclosures of some of our most popular animals. You will encounter characters such as meerkats, penguins, lemurs, sloths, beavers, capybaras, porcupines, bats, racoons, coatis and even our armadillo! 

New for 2020! Master the art of wildlife photography with our amazing new photography day from July! You’ll spend the day with a professional photographer who will take you beyond using auto and teach you the fundamentals of composition, lighting, aperture, depth of field, focusing and more. By the end of the day you will be taking more than just an animal snap, you’ll be taking those wildlife photos you always dreamed of. For those who are more advanced, we can easily adapt the course and teach you some extra tips and tricks.

Don’t forget you will have exclusive behind the scenes access to some amazing animals! Alongside our photographer you will also have a dedicated zookeeper with you at all times. They will be on hand to feed the animals, provide information on animal behaviour and answer any questions you may have. All of this helps you to really understand your subject and nail that perfect shot.


Our Zoo Photography Days can cater for a group of up to four individuals. Any session from July will be guided by our in-house photographer and one of our Zoo Keepers and costs £145 per person. Sessions in March, April, May and June cost £75 per person but are not guided by a photographer.
