Want to take your photography to the next level? Can’t progress from fully automatic, or are you simply not getting the best out of your camera?

If like us you’re locked down for the next 4 weeks, then this is the perfect time to take our intensive 12 module, 2 week online course!

This fully online course is presented via ‘zoom’ with a tutor taking you through the technical and creative aspects of photography. It’s just like a classroom based course but from the comfort of your own home.

Further to the Government announcement of a new national lockdown in the UK from 05.11.20, we will be postponing all events due to take place between 05.11.20 and 02.12.20. We will of course contact everyone who is due to attend and we will be able to open again as soon as the Government lifts restrictions.

If you do have any queries regarding this please do not hesitate to contact us.

Many of you have been asking us for more dates for the Wolf Cubs sessions, I think technically these guys are still cubs but it is getting difficult to tell them apart from the parents. However we feel this is still a really great time to come and photograph them. With 7 wolves in the pack (5 youngsters and Mum and Dad) it really is a wonderful sight, the youngsters are still playful and interacting lots with the parents, but are now confident enough to venture out on their own. So we have added lots of new dates for September and October still with a very small group size of only 2, please click here to see the dates and book your place.

I know we’ve posted about these guys before, but they really are growing fast and are now so bouncy and full of confidence, its wonderful to see! If you do fancy joining us for one of our session we have just 1 space left on 26th August, click here for more details

Due to local lockdowns we’ve had a cancelation for the 14.08.20. So if anyone fancies doing our Wolf Cub Photography Workshop, we have just 2 spaces on this date. Click here for more details

Now the restrictions have lifted a little bit more in Wales, we are really pleased to be able to once again offer the Mountain Ponies with Kevin Morgans. We have our first event coming up on 26th July with a small group of just for people. Please click here for more information


After the recent announcement regarding photography studio’s and then the change to allow the reopening of Zoo’s and Safari Parks, we can now welcome you back.

We have made significant changes to the way we work and to our studio, for a full breakdown of this please follow the link here for our Guest roadmap.

We will only currently be running one to one events which you can find by clicking here and more will be added in the next few days. As the majority of our workshops involve vehicles these are still currently on hold but we will keep you updated.

Just like many other businesses, We have obviously had a quiet 8 weeks or so following the ‘lock down’ guidance of the UK government. Fortunately the overall situation seems be be steadily improving and yesterday the government suggested, all being well, photography studios together with all retail stores and other ancillary activities should be able to re-open on June 15th. Needless to say there will still be restrictions and social distancing guidelines in place to make this safe, but, for us, it is welcome news of the prospect of starting to see customers again.

Whilst the situation continues to be dynamic, our intention is to re-open on a limited basis on June 15th, assuming this fully complies with the government advice at that time. Initially the plan is to open with 1-2-1’s and new events, but essentially only having a group size of just 1 customer at a time (or up to 2 guests, providing they are members of the same household). It is also fair to say this will depend on Knowsley Safari Park (within which we are based) also being re-opened for business.

It is also very important to note that we are working on a whole range of measures to ensure this can happen with our customers safety being paramount. Our studio, meeting room, vehicles and bathroom facilities have all been adapted to allow for social distancing and high levels of virus protection. Initially this will be made easier by limiting our activities to only 1 guide and 1 customer for each event.

It is our plan to keep everyone updated via e-mail, social media and the website with more details as this date approaches but fingers crossed we will get the green light to take bookings from June 15th. Watch this space!
