Meet Our Amazing Macro Workshop Microbeasts

These are the incredible creatures we currently have available to photograph/handle during our macro workshop sessions.  We cannot guarantee that every single creature will be available at each session as we have to put their welfare first, some are nocturnal, some may be moulting and therefore need to be left in peace.  We will however ensure that your workshop is packed with plenty choice of beasties and plenty opportunity to learn new photography skills, gain new wildlife knowledge and perhaps hold a creature you have never held before. 
New stock added every month.

Other Critters Depending On Availability

As seen below, we sometimes have other exotic creatures depending on the season and availability. These are not generally listed on the website as it is often short notice when they become available.
We also often have some native insects and invertebrates in the studio or outdoors to photograph for a very short while before releasing them back to their natural home.
