Photography Experience with Birds of Prey
At Millets Farm Falconry Centre
Fancy a go at wildlife photography? – Photo days at Millets Farm Falconry provide the perfect opportunity to perfect your skills.
Most of our customers enjoy gaining shots of our British native species, so we make sure they make up the bulk of the day. Our birds are all highly trained and will allow all guests to approach closely for highly detailed shots as well as those with a full backdrop. All our staff appreciate the need to leave you as little to do on photoshop after your day as possible so we make an effort to hide Jesses (the leather equipment used to ensure the safety of our birds) in all our shots.
The daily flying demonstrations are part of the day, during these you are welcome to move around the seating area to find the best position and it may be possible to have a place in the arena. (all we ask is that you consider other visitors and don’t obstruct their view)
Mixed abilities day:
A day crammed full of exciting settings. Birds in flight, taking off and landing, striking dummy prey, and flying close over water. This is one of the most rewarding photo days in the country. in the day you will have the opportunity to photograph a wide variety of birds of prey both as static shots and more challenging flying shots, no experience is necessary just be prepared for a great day out taking photos in the company of some amazing animals (and that’s just our staff!).
