Mindfulness for Medway Open Studios

Wow – its been busy busy at Nikki Price Photography HQ since February, Band shoots, Event photography, Graduations, Head shots, and preparation for my exhibition for this Julys Medway open Studios.

This year I’m focussing on Mindfulness, a particularly poignant theme for me this year since starting the Time to Talk events in which chatters come together to discuss Mental Health issues they may have experienced, in a supportive environment, both chatters and I have been interested in Mindfulness to help with Mental Health issues they maybe facing.   I find the act of simply being focussed on one thing so beneficial and calming, Photography for me is a Mindful practice, I wondered what other people did and benefitted from being ‘Mindful’.

So here I go camera in hand, having a dialogue with my models, as well as stills there will be a short documentary about each models thoughts and experiences of Mindfulness.

There have been some wonderful examples of people being Mindful so far in my shoots, being by the river, yoga practice, walking, drawing, reading, I don’t think I’ve been more attentive and peaceful watching someone shine their shoes in my life, truly amazing.

I’m also working with a superb musicians to get the music to accompany the documentary, a new venture for me.

Hope to see you at the Medway Open Studios 12th-21st July.
