The Art of Seeing: a mindful approach to photography

This enjoyable, practical workshop will help you learn how to use photography to develop your capacity for mindful presence, and to use a mindful approach to photography to deepen your connection to the world around you and help you discover your innate creativity.  No knowledge of photography is needed (although it’s very useful if you have some!) and any camera will do – even a phone camera.  All you need is an open mind and an interest in how mindfulness can be applied to photography.

Land Art for Beginners

Learn about land art (or natural/wild sculpture) and some of the artists who practice it.  Then try your hand at making some small pieces of art, creating something beautiful from abundant natural materials.  No experience needed, just a willingness to try something new.  Land art, by nature, is ephemeral so photograph it when you finish, keep it as a memento, or turn it into a personal greetings card.

Upcoming dates for these workshops:

Mindful Photography – Hanwell Wine Estate, Melton Road, Hickling Pastures, Leicestershire, LE14 3QG.  28th April 2018, 10.00am-4.00pm.  Includes a two course lunch with wine. Please book your place through the Hanwell Wine Estate website.

The Art of Seeing: a mindful approach to photography – beloved@thebarn, King Street, Southwell, NG25 0EH  Date to be confirmed, but will either be April or June.

Land Art for Beginners: one-day workshop, dates to be confirmed.


I offer tuition on a one-to-one or small group basis, and we meet on location with most of the session being taken up with a practical/instructional photowalk.  Tuition is available for any kind of camera, from DSLRs to point and shoots (you’d be amazed what you can do with these!).

Creative photo walks


I am able to supply bespoke courses and workshops for groups of people, whether these are private individuals or corporate groups. These can be tailor-made to suit your requirements – please contact me to discuss your needs.

I’m also happy to travel to other parts of the UK to hold a workshop for you. My charges would include travel expenses and – if necessary – overnight accommodation. Please get in touch with me and once we’ve discussed your needs I’ll send you a quote.



Stuck for what to get the person who has everything?
