Steve Radley

Steve Radley is an Anglican Priest and award winning photographer with the Guild of Photographers who combines the creativity of photography with theology and his postgraduate study of War and Psychiatry. He aims to help people find in new ways the light and beauty present in their life, helping to promote spiritual and mental wellbeing. He has served as a member of the Lee Abbey Community, in parish ministry and in the RAF Chaplains Branch where he developed an interest in mindfulness meditation. On leaving the military he undertook professional photographic training. Within photography he discovered a profound healing from some of the trauma and poverty he saw whilst deployed in the military. We can never choose to unsee past events and experiences, but we can choose to see beauty in the present moment. The accessibility of photography (drawing with light) provides a powerful tool to help us slow down and see the light of life in new and exciting ways.
