Do you struggle to talk about and express what you're currently suffering from?

Do you worry you're alone and no one will understand or relate to what you're going through?

Do you want to take back control of your life and reconnect to your authentic self so you can have a fulfilling life making your impact?

Whatever your reason for being here, you landed on this page because you felt something within you — a little pull or nudge.

I know that nudge.

It's what I ignored most throughout my deepest and most severe struggles with depression and anxiety that I suffered with for years.

For too long I thought that I was nothing, that no one cared and despite any efforts I made I wouldn't ever find a partner in life or a career that I enjoyed.

I felt stuck and worthless.

I didn't know how to talk about it.

I didn't even know what it was. But it controlled everything that I thought, did and said.

Back then, I would be completely overwhelmed at the thought of talking to strangers.

Before attending any party or social event, I'd become anxious to the point of nausea and getting sick to my stomach. Most times I'd just give in and stay at home...

I was stuck feeling anxious, and angry at myself for letting my anxiety take over, only to find myself deeper in depression. It was a vicious cycle that continued to pulled me down further away from who I really was.

I began to feel lost and hopeless, like I wasn't in control of my life and that no one would understand what I was struggling with.

It wasn't just that I didn't know how to start talking about it or ask for help.

I didn't even really know what I was struggling with.

The problem wasn't from a lack of effort or desire to make a change... it was because I didn't have the right tools!

Of course I had some good times during these years, but there was an intense underlying struggle that persisted and I wasn't able to see the people around me who cared and were there to support me.

Every moment it weighs on you and the opportunities that present you with a chance to break the silence simply pass by because sometimes you can't put it into words.

That is why reframing photography as a therapeutic tool can be so powerful.

And it's the process of reconnecting with myself and that inner voice through my photos that got me back out of it.

Suddenly, you have power over these issues and can express them in a way that is creative and engaging. You can see them outside of yourself and understand that it isn't you.

The weight starts to lift and you have more energy, more motivation.

You start to understand more about these issues, yourself and why you've been struggling.

Ideas start to flow more and you find yourself pulled in a way that you haven't felt in a while.

You're getting outside now and find yourself bonding with people more. It's a gradual process, but you can see the changes — not only in yourself and your photos, but in all areas of your life.

After some time, you share your photos with others and are able to talk to people about what you've been going through. You're amazed at the response you receive and how people are relating to what you're going through, all of the support flowing towards you.

You realize that you're not alone, that there is help, and that you are capable of so much more than you thought: a fulfilling life in tune with your authentic self that's driven by purpose, creativity and love.

This is the path that I took years ago when I first developed the techniques you'll be learning in this course and now I want to help you achieve the same results, like hundreds of others just like you who already have.

It was so simple that I was amazed someone hadn't seen this before. I wished they did and saved me the years of time, energy and thousands of dollars by giving me these techniques and all of this information when I was younger.

That's why I created Build Your One Project.

Using my photos and the techniques that I will teach you here, I was able to reconnect with my inner voice, my intuition and my authentic self and now my life has never been the same.

I saw that there was nothing else like this and felt that same nudge leading me to where we are now with The One Project. I'm glad that you're here and can't wait to see the results that this brings to your life.

Follow that nudge, your inner voice — I'd love to hear where it takes you!

“After posting my first story, I was blown away by the immediate support from the community and Bryce himself. It just quickly felt like a safe environment to share emotions and feelings.

During the course, I learned more about the power of photography and learned new ways to express myself through my photographs. I feel that now I am really able to use photographs as a therapeutic tool.” - Maria Cooks

“I am one of the earliest pioneers of the techniques of “PhotoTherapy” and “Therapeutic Photography” (using personal photographs and photo-taking as tools to improve therapy process, increase personal well-being, or create positive social change).

Photography can be a very powerful means of confronting problems and providing a way to overcome and survive them. Bryce Evans has started a vital conversation, using photography as his language for activating that dialogue.”

- Judy Weiser, R.Psych., A.T.R., Founder/Director of the PhotoTherapy Centre

I suffer from depression. Until now, I've never said that out loud. I have spent years and years trying to hide from the stigma that comes with being depressed, too embarrassed to ask for help and too anxious to feel like anyone would listen.

I don't know when the exact moment was, but I was flipping through The One Project website and it hit me like a train. I don't have to feel this way. And I don't have to do this alone.” - Molly Mitchell

“How Photography Saved My Life” (TEDx)

Watch our VICE documentary

“In April of this year, when I learned of The One Project, I was particularly inspired by Bryce Evans’ recommendation, “If you find yourself in darkness, the first thing to do is find and start capturing the light.”

Since that time, I have conscientiously tried to Seek, Capture and Share light and goodness by photographing and sharing positive, uplifting and enlightening images, whether they capture the awesome grandeur of the rising sun or the exuberant joy of a child’s face.

As I do so, I find my own spirit is enlightened and lifted upwards from oppressive darkness into glorious light. Thank you to The One Project for being such a positive influence in my life.“ — Mark Dixon

What will my investment be to get this course?

I spent more than six years of my life and thousands of dollars developing the techniques and information within this course. If you were to hire me to teach you these techniques and help you learn everything that you'll discover within this course 1-on-1 at my regular rate of $200 per hour, you can expect to pay $1,000+.

At a 3 day workshop, you might pay a minimum of $500 to work through the same process.

But we built this course to help you fast-track your recovery and growth by saving you time and money, so you won't pay $1000 or even $500.

You get the entire program: all of the videos, assignments, worksheets, resources, the private support group and everything, for just one payment of $47.

Start with a one-time payment of $47, 100% risk-free with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

We're giving you a full 30 days to go through the entire course. If you're not satisfied with it, send us an email showing that you've completed the assignments and we'll either work with you to help get you on track or give you your full money back.

“This course is very effective in dealing with a very serious topic.

This is well worth the price!” - Dr. Bob Nolley

“It's made [me] realize that photography is a form of therapy, it makes me happy, and it's inspired me to utilize this. When I'm feeling anxious or depressed I go out and take photos, and force myself to get into nature. It always makes me feel better.” - Member of The One Project (Asked to stay anonymous, we respect your privacy)

“I don't feel alone anymore. I feel free and finally have the support I need to move on and recover.” - Member of The One Project (Asked to stay anonymous, we respect your privacy)

“This is a fascinating course that I learnt a lot from. This course led me to make interesting discoveries about myself and I really experienced how healing photography can be.

I began looking at my, and others, photographs in new ways. I also started to experiment with alternative ways of using photography to explore myself and my feelings.

I think the added element of attaching a short written “story” to one’s photographs increases the learning and healing that can take place.

I am motivated to continue practicing what I learnt in the course and look forward to future course offerings by Bryce.

I highly recommend this course to others who are looking for an additional avenue to explore and heal.” - Stephanie Blumensaat
