This personal story that Craig shares, has a deep rooted purpose that explores men’s health. As part of a personal project, Craig has embarked on a journey to capture the amazing images that men in their sheds experience. In answer to a call to support his project with a film piece, Dean undertook it as his personal project, using his talents & energy to create something that he too is passionate about….stories with soul!

A note from Craig about his project:
Men Shed Photography –
A method of therapeutic health benefits through the use of photography as a visual narrative in to the life of a man’s shed.
This photographic art is to showcase the very private relationship between a man and his shed. A man’s shed is a place to shelter not just from the rain but also from the ups and downs of daily life. It is as much a mental as a physical hideaway. By tradition the shed is a male preserve where a man can retreat – a sanctuary.
Craig Wetjen (Ambassador for Beyond Blue) photography is to share the stories of proud Australian men in their sheds and promote community awareness of male health. Highlighting the positive effects a man’s shed can have on their health and wellbeing by giving them time out needed to deal with major life events like loss and depression and the power of mate-ship and tinkering. It is my way of giving back to the community to raise the awareness and importance of male health.
