Goodbye from me

Dear friends,

It is with great sadness that I am announcing my resignation from ProHides. I have spent over four years establishing ProHides and I am proud to say that it is recognised among the very best in the UK – attracting multi-repeat clients from across the country and as far as Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

As you may appreciate, operating these hides requires a huge amount of time and energy. They require 100% commitment, in order to deliver the best wildlife photography experiences for our many clients. Due to circumstances outside of photography, I can no longer dedicate the required time and energy to the business.

As the hides are all located on Helen Browning’s Organic Eastbrook Farm in Bishopstone, Wiltshire, they (Helen Browning’s Organic) will take ownership of the hides and will be seeking a new photographer or business manager to take over the reigns of day-to-day operation, development and management. If a business manager is the outcome, then they will be looking for wildlife photographers who wish to work alongside them on a paid basis, working with and tutoring people as required.

This is an interesting opportunity for the right person. You will be working with and for an established hide business and customer base with a passionate and supportive land owner, along with existing ties to luxury accommodation and pub/restaurant in the middle of the farm. As potential manager of the hides, you will have access to iconic British wildlife with which you can, no doubt, develop for your own work as well as develop the hides for your many clients. Established subjects include little owls and badgers. In development are buzzards and barn owls.

Should you be interested in taking over or working with ProHides and Helen Browning’s business, please drop a note to

I would like to thank each and every client for your patronage and especially those that were kind enough to send the most wonderful testimonials and feedback. I know I will miss my owls and badgers terribly. However, it is time for a new and fresh perspective at ProHides and I am already looking forward to seeing the latest images to be captured from these hides.
