Visit Finnature’s photography hides

We have designed and built our hides carefully with nature and bird photography in mind. Along with the abovementioned highlight species, there are many other birds visiting our hides as well: forest and garden birds visit actively and keep you busy while waiting for the main targets. We want to offer memorable experiences and best possible opportunities for our guests to capture some of Finland’s most iconic birds!

Our photography hides are designed by professional nature photographers

We design and build our photography hides ourselves with years of experience of photo hides. We pay special attention to the photo opportunities from the hides: the target species, location, backgrounds, as well as the hide comfort. Our hides are designed to get close to birds that might be shy or otherwise difficult to photograph.

We aim to build our hides with photo opportunities with good backgrounds and lighting in images in mind. Photographer gets to enjoy from low angle photography and good visibility from our hides. All this has been taken into account already. There are also always multiple shooting openings for each photographer to use and in most hides, it is also possible to adjust the working position – making the experience a comfortable one!

In addition to design and build, maintenance of the hides and feeders is extremely important throughout the season. We feed birds, maintain the hides, and decorate the perches and feeders to look natural – continuously. It is very important for us to invite guests to hides that are well taken care of and from where photography can be done easily.
