Discover a mindful approach to the art of photography in these one-day courses, held in the stunning grounds of Westonbirt Arboretum. Use a camera or mobile phone. Learn to look and really see!

In this workshop you slow down and use photography, mindfulness, and walking to look again at the world around you. You learn to take notice in the present moment, and see the extraordinary in the ordinary. You experience the opposite of 'snapping away'. As well as improve your photography skills, the workshop helps you reduce stress and improve your wellbeing. 

You start off indoors, at the Learning Centre, exploring how to look and see differently, before going on a gentle walk around Westonbirt Arboretum, taking photos in a calm and mindful way of the beautiful environment of this truly inspiring place.

The photography side of things is kept simple, low tech and fun. You can use any device you choose, from a mobile phone, tablet or a digital camera. The workshop is suitable for all abilities and levels of photography experience. Ruth will advise on technical aspects if required, but the focus is very much on looking and creating photographs.

“A very different approach to taking photos. I felt free to really focus on what I was seeing and saw so much more. It reminded me to slow down and see the little moments of beauty of interest. To remember that these ‘bits’ of life are always there!” Jenny Barton

If you are interested in a free taster interactive talk for your business, organisation or group, please contact Ruth.
