Here and there, usually around once a year, I sign up for a course/workshop/mentoring session to try and improve what I do.. I look back on my images and see how I can push myself more, try and become more efficient behind the scenes and hopefully create better images than before.. I’m usually trying to look at the world around me with fresher eyes.
Last week I headed down to Birmingham for the ‘Sassterclass’, run by Sassy at Assassynation. Sassy is known for going above and beyond to get shots with amazing impact, and I trusted she would help push my work further; I definitely came away feeling like I’d had a creative kick up the arse.
Here is a little preview.. more to come soon.

Running around outside doing a family shoot with these three reminded me why I love taking children out and about for photos instead of having a studio backdrop.. All rights reserved. Copyright Sally T Photography.
..the first of many to come. I’ll do a full post about being mentored by Joanna Brown in the next week or so but I still need to digest a lot of what I learnt.. My head is spinning and running away with itself but in a really good way. I adore my couples and their weddings, and this year I’m going to be doing more personal work just for me than before. And challenging myself. I’m not good at having my photograph taken, and I find it very difficult to look at and like photographs of myself, I usually like to hide behind someone for a bit of security – self portraiture is something I’ve wanted to tackle in a project for a little while now.. (ok there’s still one hiding behind a camera..)
