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.

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed using the badger hide last week. The hides are quite unusual and seem perfect for ground level photography while being very comfortable if you decide to stay through the night with sleeping bag and air mattress provided. The ground level camera position makes for some fantastic shots while the foam mattress makes sure you're comfortable.
The badgers appeared around 7.30 and continued to be active long after the last light had faded. I managed to capture some really good images with the setting sun providing the most amazing light.
I opted to stay the night so was able to witness the badgers being very active just before sunrise. Highly recommended.
