Experiential PhotoTherapy Workshops
My workshops combine photography, therapeutic and Mindfulness practices, offering a playful group experience,
that allows you to develop self-expression while exploring new creative possibilities.
For those of you who are new to my workshops and my practice, I teach a holistic approach to support creativity and well being - Mind, Body, Spirit as one interconnected whole.
The objectives of the workshops are to provide anexperience with the following outcomes:
- To have a fun and engaging co-creating experience
- To address self-doubt and unhealthy behaviours that sabotage our best creative interests
- To step out of our comfort zone and unlock new creative pathways
- To integrate Mindfulness into our creative process
My workshops are a safe and playful space encouraging participants to overcome personal limitations and expand our creativity with co-created assignments. Whether to recover your creative self or to dissolve barriers preventing your creative practice from expanding, let me guide you through the experience of nurturing creativity by developing a safe space within yourself.
I am a Psycho-social art practitioner and an accredited member of the Federation of Drug & Alcohol Practitioners (FDAP). I have facilitated over 200 PhotoTherapy workshops and deliver weekly workshops working with clinicians in mental health units. Alongside my socially engaged, therapeutic art practice I have 20 years experience as a TV Director and a Masters in photography.
“Marcus is a remarkable artist with a special gift for encouraging the creativity and success in others by accompanying them out of their comfort Outcome zone and into connected, co created, outstanding work. I support his mission wholeheartedly!”

“Marcus is highly skilled at creating a safe and supportive space within which to not only push creative boundaries but also to work through challenging personal issues. My photography practice is richer for having done them, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
Paul Romans – PR, Photographer
“I was lucky enough to take Marcus’ one day course and really enjoyed the atmosphere of shared creativity and personal exploration. Everything was up for grabs, anything seemed possible, and I thought the group produced interesting work, shed some inhibitions, and made good new friends from a real range of different backgrounds. Highly recommended!”
Sam Anthony – TV Producer and Photographer
