You have various options to choose from to help you get started, most people like to begin with the Making Connections option first. Anyone can join these workshops there is no need to work with an organisation
All project participants are invited into a small online community based group based in North Yorkshire to continue building skills, confidence and connections.
1. Making Connections
For busy participants who want to experience the benefits of a group project in mindful photography but perhaps have limited time to commit to live classes, or feel nervous about a group setting. These structured workshops, usually last five weeks and will be delivered via one live group introductory zoom call and weekly contact with the facilitator. You will share your images to an online sharing platform. Participants will still feel part of a group setting but this flexible project fits around a hectic life, allowing you to experience those few moments of calm. This project would suit busy individuals or larger organisations. At the end of the project, a selection of the group images will be curated into an simple online video file to keep. Prices start from £50 per person and the length of the projects can vary. Please contact Rebecca for more information.
2. The Reflector
This 4 week package is aimed at participants who would like to take part in online weekly group meetings over zoom and discuss the tasks in more detail. The reflector package also offers the participant the chance to meet with the facilitator 1:1 online, to discuss progress and personal goals. It is possible that these personalised sessions could be used to gain extra confidence with your device, work towards a well-being goal or simply chat about mindful photography. Groups numbers strictly limited for the comfort of the participants.
See my blog page for upcoming events.
3. Getting Off Auto
For complete beginner participants who would like to gain confidence using their DSLR camera, smart phone or tablet we can provide a bespoke course with access to resources and personal tuition. This is run on a very limited basis. Please note this course does not include tuition in post processing techniques. This would suit a learner who is lacking confidence and would benefit from learning in a calm environment. Workshops are between 5-8 weeks long.
4. Bespoke therapeutic photography sessions
This is a programme of six sessions, usually only delivered in partnership with an organisation in a social care or support group setting. Please contact me directly to discuss how we can work together for your client group and formulate a specific package.
