Description

The Mindful Photographer is happening on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at 10:00AM PST at Cat Canyon Ranch with tickets starting at $99.00

As photographers, we sometimes expect to walk out the door and be ‘in the zone’, ready to shoot whatever comes our way. That’s often not the case! Like a runner, photographers benefit from ‘warming up’ with mindfulness practices to help really ‘see’ before ever picking up the camera. And making photos goes beyond our sense of sight. We’ll tap into all our senses during this special photography process. It is this ‘sweet spot’ — striking a balance between an awareness of our job as photographers and to also be present to the experience that is unfolding in front of the camera lens — that helps us hone our craft.

This 6 hour guided course will consist of group mindful exercises and hands-on photography sessions designed to inspire. The workshop also includes a follow up online gallery of selected photos taken during the course. This is a great opportunity for participants to give and receive invaluable feedback from photography peers and share favorite shots from the day.

Skillset:

All levels from beginner to advanced

What to bring:

  • A camera—this could be a smart phone, point and shoot, DSLR or mirrorless camera
  • Tripod (optional)
  • Telephoto lens (optional) for wildlife photography

  • Reconnect with the sense of wonder we all have as children
  • Trust your intuition and photograph from the heart
  • Use all the senses when making photographs
  • Seek beauty in anything
  • Reduce stress with photography as a self care tool
