For the people
“Connect and Create”
Connect and Create nature photo walks are designed to inspire you to reconnect with nature and feel the benefits of being outdoors for your mind, body and soul.
We all need to make time to release the pressures of the every day and reconnect with our true selves and spending time outdoors is proven to boost mood and have amazing positive benefits to our health and wellbeing.
My vision is to build a community where people can come together, appreciate nature and boost their wellbeing.

Why should I come on a mindful photography walk?

Walking amongst nature is proven to boost your health and wellbeing. When you combine this with a creative activity it allows our minds to rest, recuperate and enter a natural flow of creation.

You will feel at ease and will enjoy the art of slowing down amongst nature.

Why use photography as a tool amongst nature?
Photography encourages you to notice the small details: seeing ordinary, unusual and everyday objects in a new light. Look around and observe what grabs your attention. Take notice and look closely. Capture the image, the feeling and focus your mind.
