“Only recently have I started to relate mindfulness and photography as part of the same thing – writes Sean Goswell on his own website – although on reflection I think subconsciously I’ve been practicing a form of mindful photography for some years.
My background is not in photography, but the fast paced world of the hotel kitchen, working as a chef. Long hours, little pay and the pressure of a fast paced kitchen was eventually taking it’s toll on me. I’m not so sure now, but certainly twenty years ago, kitchens could be both mentally and physically abusive places to be. During my breaks in the afternoon I would go on walks, just to calm down, relax and get some fresh air. I found being amongst nature almost comforting. Walking in the woods, listening to the birds, taking in the aroma of the pine trees always gave me a sense of calm.”
