ProHides™ by Elliott Neep

NOW OPEN | Welcome to ProHides™ | Phenomenal wildlife photography hides, designed by award-winning wildlife photographer, Elliott Neep. The hides are situated in the rolling working landscape of Helen Browning's Organic 1,400 acre Eastbrook Farm in Wiltshire. The farm is extremely rich with badgers, foxes, brown hares, roe deer, barn owls, little owls, red kites, buzzards, skylarks, buntings and a wealth of other species.

This is arguably best region in England to photograph the iconic downland wildlife, all year round. Here you can photograph day and night in custom-built, supremely comfortable photography hides, partnered with an award-winning pub/restaurant. We have invested considerable time and effort to bring you the best photographic opportunities for your wild encounters.

The window was well within range of my 600mm lens so I took the occasional shot as I observed the Owl – after a while the Owl started coming down to the perch and feed on the mealworms which had been left out, it was now that I started taking the shots I had wanted. This back and forth to the perches carried on for several hours, the action was literally non stop until about 10am when the Owl left the area, I was actually a little pleased to rest my eyes and have a look at the images I had captured. When Elliot arrived, I filled him in on all the activity, I think he could see how chuffed I was with the session. After dropping me back at the meet point I bid Elliott farewell and thanked him again for such a great session – I truly can’t wait to go back later in the summer to photograph the young Owls once they have left the nest.
