Tom Way Fox Photography Hide Rental
Group Size: 2
The Tom Way Photography Red Fox Hide gives you a fantastic opportunity to take your own images of these rural mammals. Foxes can be difficult to photograph as unlike their urban counterparts, they are shy and will not easily be approached. Since 2012 Tom has photographed this family of Foxes from a hide set in an open meadow. The hide had been sunk into the ground to give the photographer an eye level view of the foxes entering the field. The hide is open from May through until the end of August where the daylight hours are at the longest and also the foxes are busy either feeding cubs or introducing the young to the meadow.
Equipment and clothing:
A lens anywhere from 300mm on a crop sensor camera to a 600mm on a full frame camera will work well and ensure full frame images of the foxes. Tom uses either a 400mm or 500mm from the hide. A tripod is the best support.
The walk to the hide is only three minutes but suitable footwear is required if the ground is wet. Dark or muted clothing is preferable although you will be well hidden in the hide. If the weather is hot through the Summer months, then it can be warm in the hide.
If you would like to hire a lens for this workshop I can recommend using Lenses For Hire who have a large range of zoom and prime lenses to choose from. Discount codes are available through Tom Way Photography. Please enquire for more information.
2018 Dates For Hide Rental:
One evenings photography in the Tom Way Photography Fox hide is £125.
Code of Conduct:
The key is to be as quiet as possible. The foxes are wild and not in the least bit tame. Any noise will cause them to run away resulting in you having poor pictures and the possibility of disturbing their natural behaviour.
