ProHides™ by Elliott Neep
Welcome to ProHides™ | Wildlife photography hides for hire, designed by award-winning wildlife photographer, Elliott Neep. The hides are situated in the rolling landscape of a 1,400 acre farm in Wiltshire. The farm is extremely rich with badgers, brown hares, roe deer, barn owls, little owls, red kites, buzzards, skylarks, buntings and a wealth of other species.
Here you can photograph iconic British wildlife in relative luxury using our custom-built, supremely comfortable photography hides. We operate with flexible start and finish times (where appropriate), a 4x4 transfer service from a fixed meeting point and are available for questions and advice before and during your session.

What a fantastic couple of photographic days I’ve had in Elliott Neep’s Little Owl Hide. He runs a very efficient and well run operation making my visit easy and enjoyable.
I went for the early morning sunrise and evening sunset sessions to get the differing light and wasn’t disappointed - so much action! The owls were taking regular food back up to their nest giving huge amounts of photo opporortunities especially as they are completely unphased by the camera.
The rustic farmhouse backdrop, the varying perches which gave clean natural images for my close up shots, plus a a few hints an tips from Elliott has meant I’ve been able to put together a great portfolio. The interaction with some of the local wildlife proved an exciting bonus.
Let’s not forget the padded swivel chair in all this; never have I had a hide so snug and comfy with all the amenities. Can’t wait to get some shots of the fledglings when they appear.
