“It was late autumn when I visited the sanctuary, a lovely calm day when my friend Chris and I arrived to be greeted by the organisers. After coffee and a short introduction, and a safety chat, we were taken to see the wolf cubs, where we were encouraged to meet them on a one to one basis, under the watchful eyes of the handlers. There were plenty of opportunities to tack photos. At one point, the cubs were fed which encouraged them to interact, thereby creating some wonderful opportunities to take action shots
After the cubs we met the adults wolves, magnificent creatures, long snouts, long teeth and although kept in captivity and constantly in touch with human beings, these were wild creatures. Ample opportunity was there to handle these animals under supervision with much scope for photography. I can thoroughly recommend a day at the Sanctuary.”
Helen, Wiltshire: I just wanted to feed back what a great day last Saturday was at the Cotswold Wildlife Park for the Digital SLR training. Having had a number of years struggling with some of photography's most basic concepts, your morning session using hose pipe and paddling pool analogies finally enabled the penny to drop! It has fired me up with renewed enthusiasm to go out and just take pictures again with the knowledge that I may know what I am doing now – thank you!
