Fox Hide


 

The Red Fox in the UK holds a great fascination and desirability to photographers.  Foxes can be extremely difficult to approach and so to achieve a certain standard of image takes years of dedication and patience. Tom Way our guide in Buckinghamshire has put all the ground work in behind the scene and we are very pleased to be able to offer this unique opportunity to photograph one of the most beautiful species.  Our Fox Hide is located near the town of Iver in Buckinghamshire where we have built a wooden three man permanent hide situated where the foxes feed. We work with the fox in the spring and autumn/winter mainly, the foxes do come about 10 metres from the hide. A minimum of 300mm - 500mm lens and a tripod are required to get the best shots.

The Red Fox in the UK hold a great fascination and desirability to photographers.  Foxes can be extremely difficult to approach and so to achieve a certain standard of image takes years of dedication and patience. Tom Way our guide in
Buckinghamshire has put all the grounds work in behind the scene and we are very pleased to be able to offer this unique opportunity to photograph one of the most beautiful species the Red Fox. Our Fox Hide is located near the town of Iver in Buckinghamshire where we have built a wooden two man permanent hide situated where the foxes feed. We work with the fox in the spring and autumn/winter mainly, the foxes do come about 10 metres from the hide. A minimum of 300mm - 500mm lens and a tripod are required to get the best shots. 
 
 
Directions:
 
Our Fox Hide is located near the town of Iver, which is 5 miles from Windsor. On the day of the workshop, Tom will meet you at the Red Lion, Langley Park Road, Iver, postcode SL0 0JZ at 15:00 hrs. If you need to contact Tom on the day his mobile number is07876333787. It is then a 2 minute drive to the location. Tom will get you set up in the hide and then explain how to get the best out of your evening. Minimal disturbance is needed to keep the foxes natural movements and behaviour, so it is essential to remain quiet and to only leave the hide if necessary. The quieter and fewer disturbances there are, the better the chance of obtaining some quality of images.
 
What to Bring: 
 
 
The foxes do come within 10 metres of the hide, so bringing a mixture of lenses would be the best solution. A minimum of a 300mm/500mm lens will get you great shots on the evening as well as a tripod. In terms of clothing you will need warm dark clothes so the foxes will not see you in the hide. The vast majority of your time will be spent in the hide.  You will need either walking boots or wellington boots as the 5 minute walk can be muddy if it has been wet.  The weather is difficult to predict at this time of the year, it could be cold so bring hats and gloves as well. You will need to bring your own food and drinks as there is no cafeteria on the site so a thermal flask with hot tea or coffee is recommended.  Please note there are no toilet facilities on the site either because of the remote location.  
 
 
Camera Equipment:
 
In terms of camera kit you'll need a tripod, the longest lens you have (300mm or 500mm would be our recommendation/choice), plenty of flash cards and batteries.  There is no electricity in the hide so please make sure that you have spare batteries that are fully charged because on a good day you can take lots of great images.
