The Viaduct Animal Sanctuary

Nature photography is something I have never really done much of. I love BBC natural history documentaries and being base about 2 miles down the road from their HQ I know a few people who work on it. I am also a big fan of Tim Flach so I thought I would help out a local exotic animal sanctuary and make a popup studio at their centre. It was great fun to try something new and put myself out of my comfort zone. I am ok with most animals except snakes. I don't know why but the way they move hits a verve.  Hopefully these images will help the Sanctuary out as these are all rescue animals and need to be rehomed. I was worried about the flash distressing the animals but we only worked with the calmer ones and they didn't seem to care at all!
