Hi. I’m Lee and I am going to risk one of those fragile ‘I am’ sentences to start this off. (I know how quickly they can change). I am a photographer, writer and mindful practitioner. I create photography that reflects how I feel, and how others feel, about this glorious world we all live in. I create photographs that capture a moment in time, a fleeting feeling or thought, a hope or fear. I call this Mindful Photography.

My journey to this understanding of photography has been shaped by life experiences. My own health crisis in midlife led to destruction of many of those ‘I am’ sentences. My life was 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.

I share my mindful approach to photography (and life) in my online courses and eBooks. Each of these helps you to develop your photography skills, enhances your ability to see a photograph and encourages you to create photos that illuminate your life. If you are interested in these possibilities and particularly if you are living with difficulty or great change then get in contact.

During 2020 I was fortunate to be funded by Arts Council Wales to move all of my work online. I am developing and publishing four Online Mindful Photography Courses. Mindful Photography 101Foundations in Mindful Photography and Creative Multiple Exposure and ICM are live now. A free course called Developing Resilience through Photography will be live in April 2021.

My own practice includes mindful photography projects: ‘Who Am I Now‘ – a reflection upon the impact of significant health events in portrait sitter’s lives and ‘Pandemia‘ – an emotion led response to Covid 19. Both projects are ongoing during 2020-21.

You can read more about my Mindful Photography approach in the Amateur Photographer (the oldest Photography magazine in the world), who shared this feature article about three contemporary photographers work in this field.
