Description

Mindfulness and Photography

Mindfulness is a bit of a buzz word at the moment but it has allowed me to think about the benefits of travelling along the pathway to creating an image

We are confined by many things in our very busy minds - I see this workshop as an opportunity to let go of goals, desires, expectations, techniques, and anxieties rather than repeat them. Pure, simple awareness in a quiet place with nothing else added!

Experience the very ordinary but beautiful things in our environment. Appreciate the quiet space around you - there is always something beautiful to photograph around you - often it’s within easy reach - inside or outside - I’ll encourage you to see it. Unless you see the image in the first place you can miss the opportunity to explore it. It may be a knot in a piece of wood, a web on a window, a pattern in some cloth, a flower, a rusty nail, a brass latch, a shiny padlock, a reflection, a cloud, a tree

The images you produce do not need to mean anything to others - they are yours & they there to evoke emotion in your self and the path you took to take the photo when you revisit the image

Having a camera gives you permission to explore that special place in your environment and in your mind. Use the space of the day to zone out of everyday routine pressures for a while. For me photography has always been a key to open many doors. Explore the space beyond those doors and keep the doors open - see where your camera takes you

Join me in the journey to creating an image, the space, the thought process, the finding, the decision, the ownership. The emphasis of the day is not necessarily the end result but the journey to it

I want to keep the numbers on the workshop small so there will be a max of 8 participants so that we can preserve the quietness of the space which we occupy on the day

Any digital camera will do

Bring either a packed lunch or lunch to share (labelled for possible allergies please)
