David Plummer images has through extensive work in collaboration with landowners established a suite of up to 8 purpose-built wildlife photo hides across Sussex.
All hides are set up with the wildlife photographer in mind, providing the best light, photogenic perches and clean even-toned backgrounds for the majority of the day, and maintained repeatedly to give you the maximum chance of capturing your subject in camera. Some hides are easily moved to provide variation throughout a session or provide the specific requirements of a photographer, such as a backlit kingfisher for example.
On an exclusive day, such as little owl workshops, you will be given one-to-one tuition on the technical aspects of the shoot, behaviour whilst in the hide, as well as how to behave once your key subject arrives.
David Plummer Images hides are designed for key species such as kingfisher or little owl, or they may be more general hides such as the drinking pool set up for a number of species.
In the establishment and maintenance of all these wildlife hides, the attitude that the wildlife comes first is adopted throughout. Despite many years of experience in this area and an incredible track record of success rates in these hides, it must be remembered that this is wildlife and sometimes hides do not work. For this reason, David Plummer Images will never place anyone in a hide if it is believed there is a low chance of photographing a target species; your session will be re-scheduled.
