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.
