Meet The Team Bumper

Meet The Team: Cait McEwan

Although the Chicken Shed no longer homes actual chickens, 5 days a week between the hours of 9am and 5:30pm you will be able to find the 3LT team tirelessly working away on the next big product! Each month we will give you an exclusive behind the scenes access to a team member’s life, what they do at 3 Legged Thing, what they do in their spare time and most importantly, what they photograph outside of the world of tripods.


Climbing fanatic and 3LT 3 year old Cait McEwan joined the team in the middle of 2019!
