It has been very rewarding working on this new workshop with a Halloween feel, but we really hope it will help our guests understand the difference lighting can make to a picture. For more information head over to the workshop page by clicking here

Back by popular demand, we are very please to be able to offer more dates for our Lion Photography, Morning Special on 02.11.19, 23.11.19 and 07.12.19, please check out the page for more details!


We’ve been working harder over the last few months on new picture opportunities and new workshops to go with them, so we are really pleased to announce two more new workshops.

Mountain Ponies of Carneddau

Wild Arena has joined forces with highly respected wildlife photographer, Kevin Morgans, to offer a great opportunity to photograph the famous Mountain Ponies of Carneddau, North Wales. The Ponies are normally found on an open and beautiful hillside, providing many opportunities for images with varying backgrounds. We hope to be able to try various techniques for pictures, including using different lenses, utilising the light, colour versus monochrome and challenging compositional norms. Late autumn/early winter often provides interesting lighting and early sunsets, weather permitting, should offer a tremendous range of dramatic opportunities.

Beach and Woodland Workshop

Formby point is a very special location offering a wonderful woodland setting along with sand dunes and beach. This gives a great opportunity to look at a huge variety of different, natural subjects. From sweeping vistas to tiny details, there should be plenty to inspire everyone’s photography.

These varied subjects will allow us to cover many ideas from composition (seeing the picture in the landscape), use of different lenses (wide angles, telephoto and macro lenses), fast and slow shutter speeds for different effects and aperture/depth of field settings for variations in focus.

Please just click the link in the heading to get more information about these great new workshops.

Our Macro workshops have always been super popular, but with autumn just around the corner we thought we would put out some awesome deals to get you thinking about booking a visit to our studio!

Just in case you missed it, we were very lucky to be asked to do the long list judging for the countryfile calendar, which aired on Sunday. It took a very long day to film and we really hoped we might get at least a minute of air time so it was so lovely to get nearly 5 minutes!

Some of you may have already attended events with our new guests guides, but we are really pleased to be working with Oliver Wright for everything Super Macro and Raj Khepar for post production. We ran sessions with Oliver back in July and more will be coming shortly. New events with Raj should be available for shortly to help with that processing through the winter months.

Only 2 day to go until our annual visit to Rutland Birdfair! This year we will be supporting Canon UK, with Janet doing a daily talk on her role as a zoo photographer.

Why not come along and see all the fabulous things on offer at the show and say hello!


I know it doesn’t feel like summer at the moment, but the longest day is nearly upon and to make the most of this, we have released dates for our updated Summer Evening Bird Photography Workshop:

£69 (Members price £55.20)

Birds of prey always make lovely subject for pictures, and many photographers want to have bird images included in their portfolios. Whilst there are numerous opportunities for seeing these birds in captivity, our special ‘Summer Evening Bird Workshop’ is different, as we will focus solely on native species, not only in great natural settings but also at the perfect time of day!
