Happy Snappers Adelaide was born out of the idea to allow others that live with mental health challenges to easily be able to have the same experiences of enjoyment, Mindfulness, creativity and self-expression that Alex (the founder of Happy Snappers Adelaide) has experienced for many years now through his own photography.
Knowing how healing the photographic journey was for himself, sparked an intense desire to share this well-being experience with others.
The site was attacked by brute-force attacks on Tuesday 18th of September in the early afternoon, Adelaide time. As a consequence, I have had to rebuild it from scratch & shift servers to something more secure (& more expensive).
So, please accept my apologies as the site is reconstructed again. Unfortunately this is going to take a little while to achieve, but should be back up fully sometime on Tuesday 25th of September. Most things are laid out again, but just with place-holders and not with the actual completed wording or information yet.
Happy Snappers Adelaide is actively facilitating extremely low cost or free opportunities for anybody to easily & safely be able to experience a state of Mindfulness & safe social inclusion as a regular activity out in nature. This is ever so quickly created & entered into through the use of a camera and details of this are shared on the (About) Evidence page.
That access to this be forthcoming to everybody that wants to join in, regardless of income level, isolation, lifestyle, frame of mind, level of illness, access to NDIS funding, or any other potential hindrance to accessing this well-being activity is one of the major motivations for Happy Snappers Adelaide founder, Alex Mausolf.
Happy Snappers Adelaide is easily the most empowering thing for others that I have ever done & it is definitely the most healing & rewarding thing I have ever done for myself.

What people are saying...
I consider myself blessed to be able to spend time with you in nature, exploring mindful creativity and learning so much from your uniquely intuitive, highly informed and empathetic teaching style.
The humanity and humbleness you bring to all of your interpersonal relationships is beautiful to behold.
"Thank you again so much Alex, not only for the camera but all the support and all you give"
I have love taking photos but since starting this group I have become much.more interested now. While out and about I now look around more for something to photograph.
The group has opened my eyes to whats around me and the opportunities to take lovely photographs.
I now also see why its called mindful photography as it takes your mind of your busy life as busy looking for that next photo."
Alex is helpful and informative. He allows opportunities to freestyle but also presents opportunities to learn different perspectives and camera settings.
I am only able to access this because it’s low cost in our community.
I thank Alex for his gentle approach and his understanding of our diverse issues.
I highly recommend this as an experience."
