Spring Photography Assignment 2019

Here we introduce our free photography competition. Spring is one of the best times to get outside with your camera – Winter has retreated, the sun’s coming out and the flowers are starting to bloom.

So, to mark this time of the year, we want to see you capture the beauty of Spring in your cameras. And as a reward, we’re going to give 9 lucky winners a copy of our book and full access to one of our online courses, total prize worth £70.

Introducing the TSoP Spring Photography Assignment!

Below are the categories to enter and some inspiration to get you warmed up.

‘Landscape’ category

There’s no time of year that changes the landscape as much as spring. Capture this transformation or simply show us the beauty of the land as it turns from Winter.


‘Portrait’ category

Use the freshness of this colourful season to enhance your portraiture. To view a tutorial on using spring to enhance portraits click here.


‘Close-up’ category

Crop in, get close and get creative by showing us those finer details that make spring so special.


How to enter

1. Upload your shot to any of these social media sites: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and follow/like us on that platform. If on Facebook, make sure the post is set to public.

3. In your post description or caption, put the word ‘Landscape’, ‘Portrait’ or ‘Close-up’ for the category that you want the photo to be entered into.
