Mindful Photography Practice on the Gower Peninsula

As you may have seen in my last post 5 Mindful Photography Tips to help you create fabulous photos I recently followed a mindful photography practice on the beautiful Gower Peninsula. I am fortunate to live a short 15 minute drive from the south coast of this ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. The beach at […]

The Park – a mindful photography practice

Yesterday I spent an hour practicing being present in my local park, Singleton. I thought I would cultivate a beginner’s mind, perusing a familiar place, noticing what was there and attuning to the visual as if I were a camera; as if I did not know the name of things. Then you see what is […]

My Mindful Photography Practice

I am aware that I write more about mindfulness than photography. I reckon that is OK as my focus is teaching mindfulness through photography, but I thought that you might find it interesting to read about my regular (mindful) photography practice. What I do and how I do it. A couple of days ago I […]

Caswell – a mindful photography practice

A couple of weeks ago I spent an hour or so practicing being present at Caswell Beach on the gloomy Gower. Needless to say Taylor was in surfing at the time, so I thought I would cultivate a beginner’s mind, perusing a familiar place, noticing what was there and attuning to the visual as if […]

Paignton – a mindful photography practice

I lived in Paignton between the ages 11 and 16. It was the early 70s. In fact I have just created a 70s playlist to accompany me as I write this piece. I am currently with The Eagles ‘Take it easy’; Neil Young, The Steve Miller Band, Bob Dylan, Supertramp, Thin Lizzy and the Vapours […]

Film Style – a mindful photography practice

I was feeling a little dazed this morning. An early rise and ragged breathing left me with a sense of disconnectedness. As I had to take Taylor to work in Mumbles I thought I would change my routine, drop him off and then do a mindful photography practice to ground me. The ‘Film Style’ practice […]

London Mindful Photography Practice

Here are my favourite photos from a 1 hour mindful photography practice in London last weekend. The anchor I returned to when my mind got busy was ‘seeing colour’. Looking at the photos today I am reminded of how I felt when I was there. The traffic noise, constant movement and speed, merged with iconic […]

Limbo Practice

I don’t feel much like saying much today. The title says it all. I’m in a state of limbo; between cancer in and out, awaiting operations and treatment. The practice element is two fold. Practice sustains me at this time: meditation, yoga nidra, mindful photography practice. And practice with being with how it is – […]

My Photography Practice

You may have read that I re-established my photography practice over six months ago. I determined that I would schedule a weekly session and follow a practice that was not outcome driven. So, how have I got on? I thought I would share my regular approach and suggest some options that you could consider for […]

5 common photography mistakes

1. Taking too many photos Digital photography is too damn fast! You can take dozens of photos every second. Point and shoot again and again. You know that it’s not costing you. Sure your memory card fills up, but you can ignore or delete that later (more on that in a moment). So, on you […]

Ailsa Brims, whose story follows lower down, enrolled on my first Mindful Photography email course a few years ago. Her story is a great illustration not just of how much […]

Practice

I use the word ‘practice’ a lot. I use it to describe the 20 minutes I spend doing yoga and meditation each morning. I use it to describe the photography activities I do and share in my eBooks and online courses. But is it only recently that I have really understood its fundamental value. Practice […]

Your Photography Goals 2021

Over the last 10 months I have had plenty of time to practice and develop my photography skills. I can’t think why! A key aspect of that development was having a purpose. To be honest any creative outlet can help, but as I am a photographer and writer I’m going to share some of the […]

Blending Mindfulness with Photography

I am at the beginning of a deep re-evaluation of my photography business. Central to this process is that my business offers self development and enquiry through photography, with Mindful Photography at its heart. This has encouraged me to reflect on why I have applied mindfulness to photography. Jon Kabat Zinn (Full Catastrophe Living), who […]
