Millions of photos are taken everyday across the world. Some are snapshots.  Others can deepen our vision and sharpen our sense of what life is all about.  In this workshop we will be exploring how our photography and our spirituality can inspire each other.  Photography can offer us unique perspectives on ourselves, our world and our faith We will look at some particular aspects of photography and giving plenty of hands-on camera experience. 

No prior experience needed - just some enthusiasm to explore how photography might deepen your spirituality (and vice versa!). Please bring a camera with you - anything from a camera phone to a high-end camera.

The programme topics include:

  • Using photos to tell our story                   
  • Worshipping with photos
  • ‘Selfies’ - curse or blessing?

We will be demonstrating an innovative way of appreciating, in small groups, the photos you take on the day.

The day will be led by Philip Richter, a recently-retired Methodist minister. He is a keen amateur photographer and writer. His most recent book is: Spirituality in Photography: taking pictures with deeper vision (Darton Longman & Todd, 2017).

This is a new workshop, different from the one led by Philip in 2016:  new and returning participants are most welcome!
