Exploring Photography as a way to Well Being

Morocco Photography Holiday

Date: 6th – 13th November 2024

At the multi award winning La Maison Anglaise Ecolodge in Taroudant Morocco we will have the chance to use our own photographic to explore its benefits for mental and physical well being. This is a small group with 2 excellent tutors – you will get all the attention you want!

Every day we are bombarded with thousands of thoughts and sights. So many in fact that we stop noticing them individually. We take loads of photos with our phones or digital cameras.

La Maison Anglaise Ecolodge in Morocco provides the opportunity to stop, breathe, look and take photographs with a little more thought, using the skills of mindfulness – staying in the moment, becoming more aware.
Mindful photography is not about creating award winning images or seeking validation of the photographs through social media channels. It is a judgement-free personal response to the moment and the world around you at any given time.

Being aware and present in our own lives is something we need to question and explore. There are so many demands on our time we rarely make time for ourselves to notice what is around us or even how we actually feel about something or somewhere. We may feel tired, stressed or depressed but we won’t make judgements on those facts. We simply accept them for what they are. Acceptance means, among other things, that we stop trying to change things we can’t control. This saves us a lot of time and energy and in the long run, saves our sanity.

What will be covered?

  • The principles and practice of mindfulness and how to apply them in everyday situations
  • How to apply mindfulness to ways of seeing and your creative photographic practice
  • How to produce a mindful photographic project which helps develop your photographic style
  • Photographic skills for your particular level of ability.

What will you achieve? Well, by the end of this workshop you should be able to…

  • use the simple mindfulness techniques you’ve learnt
  • carry out simple meditation techniques to reduce stress
  • apply mindfulness to develop ways of seeing to enhance your creative
    photographic practice and style.
