Your host will be Vincent Jones, he is the founder/trustee of the Barn Owl Centre and very dedicated to his work. Accompanying Vince on the day will be a small dedicated team who will be on hand to assist in making your visit enjoyable and successful.

Vince's photography experience is wide ranging and he is especially good when working with the skill levels of amateur, semi-pro's or professional photographers. Also Vince and his team have great knowledge of the Owls and their behaviour, which is key when connecting Owls to photographers or vice versa.
