The Bradgate Park Trust is very lucky to have the support of many local photographers who help document the work of the Trust and our working life in caring for Bradgate Park and Swithland Wood. Many individuals, as well as groups and businesses,  supply these images to the Trust for our free use in promoting the Charity. Many are featured across this website and social media and are used with grateful thanks.

The work of these talented volunteers includes helping us record events, seasonal change, the work of the Rangers, as well the inspiring landscapes and heritage of the sites.

In recording the daily life of the Park and events, we do take pictures of visitors, which are then used in our publications, talks and online. When our volunteer photographers record events they are clearly recognisable with their ID badges so just tell them if you do not wish to be photographed.

We are very lucky to have the support of the Leicester Forest Photographic Society, who are key partners of the Trust. Their membership has a Bradgate Park Photographic sub-group and over 20 photographers help in this work to produce a valuable archive about the Estate, and also undertake projects. Many of their volunteers are nationally acclaimed, having won many prizes in competitions.

The Society also provide leaders for our community walks, have an exhibition at the Visitor Centre and help with projects. 

Their images are many of those used online, and also on the digital picture frames at the Visitor Centre and two Tearooms.
