Like all great art, great photography shares something of the photographer, who they are and their relationship with the world.
We are two fully trained Gestalt Therapists who graduated from the Gestalt Centre in 2008. Since then we have combined our passion for photography with our passion for psychology and self development to create these workshops exploring Gestalt and mindfulness photography.
Gestalt psychology is the study of perception, how we perceive the world and the relationships between different parts of the visual field. Through a better understanding of Gestalt photography you can develop your skills as a photographer both aesthetically and to deepen the stories you are able to tell.
Mindfulness is a process by which we focus our attention fully on the present moment. When practiced regularly mindfulness has been shown to have many positive effects on the mind, body and soul. Mindful photograph allows us to reap the benefits of mindful practice while also channelling that intense focus through our photography.
We are fully committed to working collaboratively with our members and arrange an exhibition each year to showcase the work of our members. You can also follow us and take part through Instragram by following us at @lifethroughalenssl
We aim to make our Meetups affordable, enjoyable and educational and we look forward to seeing you at one soon.
