Week-Day Photography Workshops

Since completing our purpose-built photography studio at the Liberty’s Centre we are pleased to off “Week-Day Photography Workshops” where you can book yourself in for a midweek workshop on a day that suits you.

Please contact us to arrange a suitable day and time for you to come and join us and have an opportunity to learn how to take some really special photos. These can be used as tutorial days where you can work side by side with an experienced professional photographer and learn how to take some great photos or if you prefer you can use our equipment and animals to try to create some unique images of your own supplying and using your own props and ideas.

These days are only available during the week, Tuesday to Friday subject to availability and can not be booked for weekends


Available Workshops

Mid-Week Mice
Photograph our cute little Harvest Mice in an unhurried friendly workshop session with an experienced professional photographer on hand to ensure that you get the most from your day as well as to look after the mice!  These days are great fun and the mice make great subjects as they go about their business sitting on a variety of props that we supply. If you require specific props, for example specific flowers, we suggest that you bring them with you on your day although we provide a range of standard props and table top sets.

These Workshops can be held as a Morning Session between 10.00Am and 12.30PM or an Afternoon Session between 1.30PM until 4.00PM. Please specify which session you would prefer when booking.

Equipment required are a DSLR Camera, Compact System Camera or High End Bridge Camera which has a Flash Fitting (Hot-Shoe) and is capable of being used in Manual Exposure Mode. You should be able to change the Aperture (F number), Shutter Speed and ISO on your camera. Best lenses for this day would be a macro lens around 100mm focal length or a zoom lens of around 70 – 300.

We supply all lighting as well as a range of standard props for you to use although we suggest that you bring anything specific that you require the mice to sit on (subject to it being safe for them!) and we encourage you to bring your own ideas on the day !
