Use mindful photography to see your community or organisation with fresh eyes and to tell your story.

We all live very busy lives and our minds are so full of thoughts that we don’t give ourselves time to stop and simply stare at the world around us and really connect to it.  Look Again uses photography, mindfulness and nature to help us slow down and take notice of what is around us. By doing this we can see with fresh eyes and can tell our story more effectively.

Look Again workshops are centered around the ‘Five Steps to Wellbeing’, developed by the News Economics Foundation and used by the NHS:

  • CONNECT with self, others and nature
  • GIVE your photos, your inspiration, your presence
  • LEARN photography, communication and mindfulness skills
  • BE ACTIVE and enjoy walking in nature
  • TAKE NOTICE observe and appreciate the beauty all around us

In this workshop you learn to really take notice and to see the extraordinary in the ordinary. You experience the opposite of ‘snapping away’. You will learn effective and creative tools that help you:

  • Slow down and improve your health and wellbeing
  • Build stronger connections with your community
  • Clarify your vision – why do you do what you do?
  • What is your story and what does this look like?
  • Learn to take more effective photos for use on your website, social media, in printed material, and for evaluation purposes.
  • Learn simple ideas and tips that you can use in your day to day life and share with others

The photography side of things is kept simple, low tech and fun. You can use any device – mobile phone, tablet or digital camera. The training is suitable for all abilities and levels of experience.

You will start off inside and explore how to look and see differently, before going on a gentle walk around Hawkwood College, taking photos in a calm and mindful way of this beautiful, inspiring and peaceful place.
