Seeing the Light in Life

Promoting spiritual & emotional wellbeing through contemplation, mindfulness & image

Seeing the Light in Life workshops & retreats show you ways of using your smartphone or regular camera to help you see everyday life in new ways. The camera in your pocket is a gift & I’ll help you use it to bring a new vision to your life.

retreats & workshops


The pressures of modern day life can feel overwhelming. These bespoke sessions show you ways to use your camera to see life in new ways by using image and mindfulness for stress management.


Designed for churches or community groups, this one day workshop helps you see your locality in new ways. As part of the day you will view each others images helping you see your community from new perspectives.


These 5 day and weekend retreats have been successfully run from Christian retreat centres. Using light as a metaphor for life, each days images will focus on a different property of light.


If you are a church or community leader who has been given some study leave, I can provide bespoke sessions helping you explore your community in new ways through image and reflection.

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower;
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour”

Blake, Auguries of Innocence

After Steve’s input in the morning I was really looking forward to going out with my camera and taking some pictures. The whole idea of seeing beauty in the ordinary really appealed to me. As a non-technical person I was pleased to see that I could take some interesting photos with a bog standard basic digital camera

My understanding of receiving, being a co-creator and of contemplation has been revealed in a wonderful way. Your gentle and sensitive manner in all things was restorative. I have come away more relaxed and calm in spirit than I have ever done from a retreat.
