ABOUT

Hi! My name is Saskia Parkinson

I have worked in the customer service industry for most of my working life. After timeless occasions of feeling like I was going nowhere and that I was stuck in a rut, on a constant search for a career that was fulfilling and wasn't a complete bore, I found myself often in a fit of despair. Since then I was committed to documenting everything that made me happy. I quickly became that friend that would constantly have their phone out for the perfect photo, but unlike most I wasn't taking photos of myself.


Noticing my developing interest in photography, my dad got me a low-end DSLR camera. This changed everything for me, I was no longer interested in images on my mobile phone, but rather capturing something that would have a greater meaning beyond myself. I had always been one of those people watching from the background, never really the center of attention, so holding a camera in front of my face seemed natural. I started taking my camera to the local pub and taking of people dancing and singing. Then, the pub wanted to use those photos on their Facebook page!


This opened my eyes to how I could actually do something with this, I could really use photography to mean something, to be something more than a lifelong passion.

I started Tilted Tripod Weddings after leaving high school, jumping into wedding photography between days at college. Saying goodbye to college was scary, every friend I had ever known was setting off onto their own journey whilst I remained at home taking photos.

Very few could understand, no one could accept that I had chosen the path of being a photographer when I had the grades to become a doctor or something that is traditionally deemed inspiring. But I thought photographers were inspiring. I would spend hours scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram, 'favouriting' shared images from a select set of photographers that I thought I could grow to be like: I had no interest in being a doctor or anything of the sort. 

That being said, I did love learning, I most certainly did not feel ready to be in the big wide world on my own, pushing to achieve a goal that nobody around me could comprehend; but I did and here we are. I used to roll my eyes at my mum using quotes to sum up situations, but this one seems fitting,

'In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take'

When I pick up my camera, I get a rush. My mind becomes so active, filling with ideas of how to use the space and what photos to take. 


It's terrifying but it feels so amazing to do what I do. 

I love my job, I love people and I love watching people's stories unfold.

Stories are an invaluable currency of humanity. 

I use my images to tell a tale that lingers amongst the soul.

I want to document all the aspects of life which count in the midst of living it.

Life moves fast, rather than scraping together fragmented memories, freeze frame a precious second of time for eternity. 

It is such a privilege.

This has been my journey,

I am delighted to be capturing yours.
