An evening with Salli Gainsford Fnps

Thursday 6th April saw Great Barr Photographic Society host 'An evening with Salli Gainsford Fnps'

The extremely talented photographer shared her inspiring photographic journey with us alongside some amazing images and was a presentation not to be missed.

Right from the beginning of the talk, Salli's passion for her work was evident as she explained how many of her shoots came about and the people and animals that were involved in them. Many of the models have worked with Salli for years and had never been photographed before meeting her. Likewise the stunning animals used in the photoshoots are now regulars for her workshops.

Another string to her bow is that she designs and creates many of the outfits and props used in her fabulous workshops. Salli's styled workshops are very well attended and often sold out in a matter of hours, with photographers able to expand their portfolios with the wonderful images they can achieve from attending. The themes for some of the workshop days range from Equine to Egyptians and Vikings to Ballet and the fabulous images that accompanied the themes were stunning.

Some of Great Barr Photographic Society members have attended Salli's workshops and come away with beautiful images which have also done very well in our club competitions.

Salli's presentation was an inspiring evening for all and we will be looking forward to her return visit in December.
