Liberty’s Outdoor Harvest Mouse Workshop
1st May to 30th September – Weather Dependent.
These days are held at Liberty’s Centre where we take some of the Harvest Mice outside to photograph them under natural light and against natural backgrounds as the mice go about their business on a variety of natural and seasonal props and foliage. During the course of the day you will be working with an experienced friendly professional photographer to offer help and advice throughout the day making this day suitable for photographers of all levels of experience including beginners as well as more advanced photographers looking for some stunning images of these fascinating (and cute!) little creatures.
As with all our animals the health and well being of our Harvest Mice always comes first and we do not force them to do anything they don’t want to do or put them in harms way with anything that might cause them distress. You are welcome to bring any props that you might want to on the day but please be aware that these will be checked for safety before being used. We do not allow the photographers or guests to have any physical contact with the animals.
If the weather is not suitable for the mice to be outdoors in the open on the day you will be offered an opportunity to photograph them indoors in our purpose built, professionally equipped, indoor Photography Room or to return on another day.
