Mindful Photography artist / teacher | Creative Life Coach & Vision Exploration Guide in Nature

MY LIFE MISSION is to guide creative people into seeing the world from their unique perspective, opening up their heart by getting in touch and attuned with Nature. So that their true nature can unravel as a pure gift to the world. Facilitating platforms of direct individual and group experience in Nature. Using vision quests, exploration, movement, photography and performance art as a powerful vehicle to self-realization; to help seeing the big picture and connect with source.

Maurice Spees (1975) is an award winning wildlife, nature & culture conservationist photographer/ filmmaker.

“My employer is the Earth. I work in co-creation with Nature. With a mindful and intuitive approach to my work I offer my work as a gift back to the Earth. All I ask in return is your support to make it possible to continue giving these gifts to people, to cultivate inspiration for others to be their unique gift to the world.”

I work in full attunement with the Spirit of Mother Nature and my work is my invitation to do the same. The people I work with are conscious entrepreneurs and artists with the same employer.

Maurice has been working around the globe as a nature & culture conservation artist photographer & filmmaker for over a decade, spreading his love for nature and her beauty across the world. With both film and photography Maurice tends to share the power of our connection with nature instilling this beauty and magic into people’s hearts. His work is an invitation to  attune ourselves with the Spirit of Mother Nature. With Mindful Photography Maurice intents to attune people with Nature within their surroundings, connecting and engaging people with the natural beauty of our ordinary life. Using the art of film and photography as a powerful communication and transformation tool.  Tapping into the potent gift we all carry within, as caretakers of our planet; to purify ourselves, to help maintain beauty, harmony and balance that is naturally present in nature and within our own purity!


Mindful Photography arose as the synergy between my 15 years experiencing as a globetrotting professional artist, photographer and filmmaker, my self-realization experience in Asia and worldwide Nature explorations. Through intense contemplation in eastern philosophies with the help of insight vipassana meditation, I uncovered an innate ability to intuitively communicate with nature, which are the primal ingredients that guided me to developing everything I teach today.The last decade I develop a joy and a knack for empowering and guiding people into their own gifts and true nature through workshops, inspirational talks and Vision Exploration Retreats.

From 2007 onwards I facilitated workshops in Intuitive Development, Authentic Movement, Filmmaking and Mindful Photography for professionals, leaders and students. The essence of this experience I brought together into the ever-growing Vision Exploration experiences I facilitate in the Balearic Islands, Nepal and SE-Asia today.”

All I do is express my love for the world through my work.”

Creative Vision Exploration Retreat

Discover the magic of living in attunement with the spirit of the Earth.

Can you remember those breathtaking moments where you loose your mind entirely into the awe of your experience?

Moments where you lost yourself in the magic of life?

These awe inspiring moments of bliss, serenity and peace where you easily surrender to everything that is.

Maybe it’s impossible to remember them because at those moments your mind was gone, so all that is left is glimpses of the experience. These moments take place in the pure conscious experiencing where we don’t need to memorize things to pick them up later.

Where I want to go with you is; why should these moments be so precious?
Why can’t just always live in awe of the magic that surrounds us, just like an undistracted child being in the moment?
We certainly can! And the effect of this way of living will move your life from ordinary to extraordinary so that the extraordinary can become ordinary and so on.


But how can we accomplish this? How can we loose our mind entirely when we are so accustomed to our mind, while our society is build with it?
Spending years in the most pristine natural environments from rainforests to vast oceans on my own, I discovered it sure is possible to always live in the moment, when we re-attune our inner child with the pure spirit of the Earth and co-create our world in this vibration. The pure spirit of the Earth that can be found in the pure presence of Nature.

Together with our Mother Nature I developed a platform in the form of a seven-day Creative Vision Exploration retreat in which you will dive into the depths of nature to uncover your own pure nature. We let the diversity of the Menorca Biosphere Reserve be our platform of individual and group exploration.

Discover how by getting in touch and attuned with Nature you will be able to fully tap into your pure inner guidance that helps you to enjoy the natural flow of life, for life. This is what I call the magic of living.
This retreat will bring out the EARTHKEEPER in you.

An EARTHKEEPER for me is someone who sustains the attunement with the Earth Spirit through a pure connection with Nature, and radiates this frequency through their Art and presence in the areas where people lost touch with it. EARTHKEEPERS are living inspirations of our human potential when living and working in co-creation with Nature.
