This has been no different for two of our members, Chris Jordan and Richard Turner, both keen photographers, who have turned their lenses to the natural world.
Here at My Life, we place great emphasis on the wellbeing brought about by time spent on our 84 acres of beautiful green land. With the advent of the pandemic, our many outdoor activities that have been able to take place safely have become even more important to our members – and locals too.
Our Chief Executive Caroline Tomlinson explains:
“Chris and Richard have taken so many incredible shots whilst they’ve been walking the dogs at our Doggy Day Care service for local people, as well as undertaking wildlife observations, that we asked them to compile their best ones to create our 2021 calendar.
We’ve all seen the Countryfile calendar – Chris and Richards’ photos are certainly comparable, but all photos are of local wildlife. We’re so proud of their work. The calendar is a true embodiment of what we do here at My Life, identifying, harnessing and nurturing everyone’s individual talent, for the greater good of all.”
“As a member of My Life to be given the opportunities that I wouldn’t anywhere else is amazing and I want to thank everyone at My Life and my family for their continuous support and encouragement. I use photography as a means to escape and to relax as I suffer from anxiety and depression. I’m really happy to be able to use my ability to show others what a truly beautiful world we live in and that we all should cherish this.”
“I’ve been coming to My Life for a year now and after every session I feel really good, like I have achieved something. I really enjoyed taking the photos!”
The calendar costs £6.50 and funds raised will go towards the purchase of new photography equipment for our members. Buy yours by calling 01257 472 900 or emailing email@example.com.
