PH7 LIFE are a mental health charity in Lancashire. we are currently casting for a male to feature in our cinematic trailer. More detail is able to be discussed with individual applicants who proceed to the next stage.
This project is in conjunction with international photographer and ‘Portrait of Britain 2020’ winner – Alexander Beer. The man behind our 2019 ‘think twice’ campaign.
The video will be used nationwide to raise awareness of mental health, specifically during the time of COVID19.

You must be able to dedicate 2 days of your time in November or December of 2020. Dates will be discussed at a later date.

A Word From The Photographer...
I did this campaign as I feel the word mental health is still a taboo world that people do not like to really talk about.
It affects everyone in your lifetime, in a small way or a big way. No one is immune.
People are taking about it slowly but not many are listening, I believe it’s time for that to change.
Even if this project stops 1 person taking their life and seeking help then this will be worth while. Depression and suicide rates in our country are not acceptable, and we need to take some responsibility for change to occur.
The imagery of ‘Think Twice’ we captured with a shock factor in mind. We want these pictures to stop people when they see or walk past them. We want people to read the stories behind the faces, helping people to associate with them and realise this affects everyone.
I’m exceptionally grateful to all of the people in the portraits. This was not an easy experience for them. They let me in to some of their darkest places, with a hope that it would help others. I’ll forever be honoured to have been the man they allowed to do this. Thank you.
