Photography talks to help you gain a fresh perspective
I am available to talk to your business or organisation about how to use mindfulness and photography to see with new eyes; to look and to really see what is in front of you; to gain a fresh perspective.
Talks last from 10 minutes to an hour and are suitable for a range of events such as forums, conferences, AGMs, staff development days, planning events and festivals.
Contact me to see how your business or organisation can benefit from a Look Again talk.

‘Feeling Images – Photography’s relationship with Illness, Mental Health and Wellbeing’
On the 7th April 2017, I was honoured to give an interactive talk on mindful and therapeutic photography. Since its invention photography has a longstanding relationship to concerns of the physical, emotional and mental human condition. This one day symposium explored photography’s interactions with illness, mental health and wellbeing, asking fundamental questions such as who is such work for, and what are the ethics of engagement.
If you would like to read more about the symposium, Tim Andrews, one of the speakers, has written a beautiful review of it here.
