What we aim to cover We try to tailor all our sessions to suit our guests, so we do not always cover all the topics depending on the individual needs. Typical topics we can cover in this session are; use of sets, studio lighting, capturing the moment.

Here at Wild Arena we love our frogs and we certainly have plenty of them in our small animal team. These guys lend themselves perfectly to photography in our studio and give us plenty of opportunities for different pictures, to either help you get started with this unusual subject or to expand your portfolio with interesting and colour subjects.

With a small group size of only 3 people and with a large number of different species, there should be plenty of time to get some really great pictures. The Wild Arena guide will be on hand to set up the lighting, set-ups and backgrounds and to ensure you have the knowledge to get the pictures. Some of the Frogs can be a bit bouncy but with the patience they can strike some lovely poses.

Wild Arena at Knowsley Safari Park

Knowsley Safari Park is home to Wild Arena, and this session will take place in their training room and studio, within their headquarters of ‘Park Farm’. Situated in the middle of the safari reserves, the historic Park Farm buildings offer not only a comfortable space for our groups, and a fully equipped studio space, but also great views across the Africa and Asia sections of the park.

Guests will have the remainder of the day to spend at leisure in the Safari Park, if it is open. (It is possible that during the winter season, the park may not be open to the public, so non escorted access outside of the event timings will not be possible).
