Photography can help you make it through difficult periods of your life. And in his series Focus on Mental Health, photographer David Dixon meets photographers who have inspiring and encouraging stories to tell. One of them is Chris Nowell, the only registered blind landscape photographer in the Peak District, U.K. And in this video, Chris shares his story of how he was injured and how this severe injury led him to discover his love of photography.
I have a deep respect for photographers who will go an extra mile to make their clients happy. Australian photographer James Day did exactly this for a couple whose wedding he recently captured. Along with videographers Shaun and TJ of Lemon Tree Film House, James photographed the wedding of Steph and Rob.

He shared with us some details of the wedding day and how he and his team made it more memorable for the bride, but also for everyone else.
