You will start of by photographing 2 very small owls Tengmalm's owl and a Tropical screech owl, then we will move over to the Harvest mice,   



As Britain’s smallest rodent, harvest mice love to climb plants and bushes 

The harvest mouse is the only British mammal to have a prehensile tail 

The workshops are held outside using natural lighting, and different props. 

The workshop will cover looking at right camera setting, getting your props ready and you will only need about 1 hour for the owls then rest of the is with the mice remember the welfare of the mice comes first at all times, and we may rest them 2 to 4 mice will be on hand, 

Natural props are  dependent on time of year, you are free to bring your own props if you have an image in mind.     


You can use macro lense (LONGER THE BETTER) but for a more natural looking image  70-200mm OR 100-400mm  work very well and your not too close to the mice, LED lighting will be on hand in very low lighting conditions, no flashes will be used at any point of your workshop,

props are of natural or artificial depending on time of year, 

the workshops are weather dependent, (for the owls) if you have booked your workshop and its forecast heavy rain then i will contact you one or two days before your workshop date where an alternative date will be given 

please bring  suitable  clothing jacket walking boots as this time of year the centre can get a bit wet under foot,
