Eye for Life

leave a comment »

The Eye for Life website has now launched and will grow over the coming months… We need your input with comments and suggestions. We need your creativity.

What is Eye for Life about? Exactly that. We are about people and creativity; How you view the world, your life, life in general… How you image the world and how your world can improve though photography or creativity.

Our core structure is workshops but due to the very nature of life, we do not now how it will evolve, only that it will and that it will be a creative process. One that we teach in our workshops and courses.

Eye for Life is about not letting life go by without taking part. About not missing it in a sea of anger or depression but seeing the beautiful in the world. Capturing it and creating great things.

Our workshops are for photographers to improve or begin, Corporations working with teams and team leaders to be more creative in their approach or individuals in private one to one sessions.

Take a read of the website, it wont take more than 5 minutes to skip through….Being creative is not about pages of text, its about doing…. Register with us if you are interested and follow us to keep updated of our programmes or become involved.

I will be in Kuwait at the end of June for more workshops and online activities will start shortly after that… We have lots planned. Please get in touch…

Its in Spain, England, France, even in cities in the US. and if real change is to happen it has to be in the “old powers” as well as the new emerging nations of the world.

Democracy has been spread fiercely since the end of WW2. With USA, UK and France pushing forward with the spread of Western power at the end of the British Empire, the world has taken on a new look of globalism, commerce and banking. But these very foundations are too weak to survive as human beings need more than commercial goods and money. On the face of it, yes money and power are very appealing but the emptiness, lack of soul that this alone brings is now evident across the Western world; Broken societies, morally corrupt as well as financially corrupt institutions, and family breakdowns and divorce at an all time high do not make for happy societies. We cant even walk our streets safely in our free world – read Read the rest of this entry »

More on Freedom

with 4 comments

I was in an interesting thread the other day and the topic moved to freedom. Or perceived freedom.

The protests in Kuwait were at the centre of the topic and I just mentioned how I felt the freedoms they had in Kuwait were greater than they believed and that the life in the West under ‘democracy’ was not as ‘clean and fresh’ as they believed.

The protests were peaceful and for their constitutional rights.

I would just like to point out than Read the rest of this entry »
