What do great photographers like Robert Adams, Cartier Bresson and Saul Leiter have in common? 

It’s their gaze, the way they focus on the world that surrounds them. 

All three of them are mindful photographers. They use contemplative photography to get to the essence of their subject.

In this workshop you will make an acquaintance with contemplative photography in both theory as well as in practice. 

In the afternoon we will find out in what way mindful photography can contribute to your photography.

How you can really connect with your subject.


As the photographers couple, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, both approach their subject in a mindful,

focussed way, this led to striking street photography for Alex and to touching poetic images by Rebecca. 

The results of your experience will be discussed at the end of the workshop.  


So, let’s find out how contemplative photography can improve your photography and can make your photography more
