Who we are and how we do things


The One Project has been running for close to a decade, funded personally by the founder Bryce Evans, our community and financing through Futurpreneur and BDC. During that time, thousands of hours have been poured into building, managing and improving one of the most supportive private online communities for mental health. The entire system and social enterprise is run by Bryce, who doesn’t take a salary or wage — in his time outside his main work and business.

Throughout this time, there’s always been free access for anyone unable to afford it.

It’s an art and personal project that resonated globally and took on a life of its own to have a bigger impact than ever expected.

Currently, we have launched our new system and app which has drastically helped us in our mission to achieve a better experience for our members and gain sustainability that will ensure we are able to pay our expenses and stay around.

We do not have ads anywhere.

We do not sell your data.

We do not restrict access to those unable to afford membership.

We do not use your photos or stories (for promotions or partnerships) without your express permission and if it’s a paid opportunity, everyone is compensated fairly.

We believe there’s a better way to connect and support each other online and the testimonies of our members speak to our success so far. This is just the beginning.

You’re helping to fund

Your donation will help us continue to provide lifetime, free access to those who can’t afford it and achieve sustainability in paying off our remaining loans. This allows us to begin expanding our impact around the world through new programs such as:

Community Leaders

Increased support to host and run local events (photo walks, workshops + more)

Events and Exhibitions

To build our community, expand awareness of therapeutic photography, and showcase member stories (with permission)


Funding for members to create a photo series or creative community project


Commission professional research to measure and help prove the therapeutic power of photography

What our members say

Love the app. I am happy to support you and The One Project.
An investment in hope.

Sue Hitchcock

In my mind $10 per month is an absolute bargain for access to do what I already enjoy, taking pictures, with a new technique that fosters personal growth and healing at the same time.

Steve Nelson

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

I am thrilled to be a member of this community. Bryce has created an incredible platform for people to be able to discuss, talk and open up regarding their stories regarding mental health.

I have been able to share some of my experiences within the community, and it is exciting to see how the conversation around mental health grows and transforms.

Jesse DeLisle

This course [Build Your One Project] is very effective in dealing with a very serious topic.

This is well worth the price!

Dr. Bob Nolley

I don’t feel alone anymore. I feel free and finally have the support I need to move on and recover.

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

Photography has helped my mental well-being more than any medicine could, but I was reluctant to share my photos and thoughts. The One Project gave me a place to do both and connect with others of similar interest and struggles.

Aaron Rouselle

The One Project helped me get back on my feet after a couple of very rough life events. The things that I learned in this course [Build Your One Project] turned into a series of books that I’ve published. I constantly use the techniques on a daily basis in my practice as a portrait photographer and couldn’t describe this any better than; “The One Project saved my life”.

Jelani Woods

I'm grateful for this community. I've only been here for a few days, yet I feel much more loved and appreciated than ever.

Exceeds my expectations by far! I’m so, so excited about this new app The One Project has to offer. It gives me the opportunity to share and get feedback instantly when the thoughts are fresh on my mind. For me, this means a lot. I feel it’s like an ongoing discussion that you can join the moment you open your app.

Peter Engberg

I am SUPER impressed with how professional everything looks! It's really inviting!

Christina Graves

It's a brilliant community to be part. it has really helped me a lot and couldn't recommend it enough. ❤️

Shannen Woods

Photography has been one of the best things I have ever done for my mental health. It helped me get through the empty nest syndrome, the passing of my Mother and also has helped me process and make sense of past childhood trauma. It’s a tool widely overlooked that deserves more awareness.

Melanie Hood

This community encourages everyone to explore their challenges with mental illness using photography, a tool which allows us to reflect and share in a very meaningful way, even when words aren’t available.

I’ve just recently started sharing in The One Project but I’m already seeing the support of the community, through their respectful and warm feedback.

Bar Perry

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.
