Wellbeing Creative PhotographyFULLY 


Join us in getting creative through a range of creative and enjoyable photo projects that anyone will be able to do. The course is for anyone who has an interest in creative photography.

In each session you will start and finish a creative project, so you will feel a sense of achievement each time. Along with learning lots of creative camera techniques and ideas, we will also think about how photography can be used to help you relax, feel more connected to your surroundings and to others, and find interest in ordinary places.
