Welcome to the Home of Mindful Photography

Hi, I’m Lee Aspland and I am a Mindful Photographer. “What’s that?” you might ask. I am a photographer who practises creating photos that align what I can see, with my photography skills and how I feel about what I am looking at. You can find out more about me here or you can look at the online courses and eBooks I offer below that will help you to become a Mindful Photographer.

My journey to this understanding of photography has been shaped by life experiences. My own health crisis in midlife led to my life being shaken and reformed on every level. I now use the experience and knowledge I gained, by using photography to process and accept my life changes, to help others.
