Workshops are held in the great outdoors at a beautiful rural location, allowing four different and distant natural backgrounds for your images.

Our aim is complete customer satisfaction and for you to get the maximum from your visit, nothing worse than someone standing in front of you just as the mouse decides to do something comical ! Or that you are the last person firing the trigger with flash setups and all you get is a black screen...It's all straightforward and natural with a very relaxed atmosphere.. 

 

We offer both morning and afternoon sessions with these incredibly acrobatic mammals. Each session will run for a maximum of two and a half hours and times stated are strict ! This is more importantly for the wellbeing of the mice and allowing Dean time to meet and greet other customers that have booked before or after you.

Meeting point

 

 

Dean will meet you 15 minutes prior to the start of your harvest mice session at the Barley Mow public house car park, which is situated on Long lane in Colehill near Wimborne. Postcode for the Barley Mow is BH21 7AH..He will then escort you to the site and your day will begin..

 

 

 

 

 

Equipment

 

Macro lenses are recommended for the harvest mice workshops, only because this allows you to get up close and personal. However visiting customers have used an array of lenses, including 100mm-400mm and 150mm-600mm Sigma sport so you are not governed to just macro work and photographic opportunities are not limited due to our natural backgrounds and setting. If you wish to bring a tripod, flash guns or any other gadgets please inform Dean when booking your day and he will advise what is suitable..

 

Please wear appropriate clothing for your visit and good footwear as you will be standing in a field when photographing the harvest mice.
