Our Uneeka team love celebrating International Women’s Day!

Sasha is one of the newest members of our lovely Falmouth team!

Outside of Uneeka, Sasha is a second year Television student at Falmouth University. She loves to play around with new camera techniques and her biggest passions are both filming and photography. She specifically loves working with film photography because she feels it is more unique than digital photography.
