Abstract

The Mindful Photography course offered by Look Again was established to support individuals to increase their wellbeing and mental health. Mindful Photography is defined as “using our sight and a camera as an anchor to help us become more consciously aware of the present moment. It is experiencing the process of creating photographs in a non-judgmental, compassionate way” (Ruth Davey, 2017). The mindful photography course involved six half-day sessions to develop photography skills and improve mental health and wellbeing through mindfulness techniques. The present evaluation was commissioned to evaluate this intervention for its efficacy in improving participants’ health and wellbeing.
