Welcome to Capture Happiness

Capture Happiness is a community that encourages people to focus on the positive in life through the lens of a camera. It is a movement that motivates us to get out and take photos as a valuable process in itself, whatever the end result.

The community utilises photography, film and personal experiences to share perspectives and problems in the search for peace of mind and contentment. It focuses on the world around us, to escape introversion and experience joy.

It is well documented that focusing through the camera lens is a form of mindfulness, bringing people into the present and contributing to mental health. It can be an effective tool to fight depression.

Hopefully, you will all get out there take some beautiful pictures, share your stories within the community, help others gain perspective and have happier lives as a result.
