Finally! We got our dates sorted out! Announcing our next Food Photography Workshop with Food and Prop Styling this October 6th and 7th.
This two day, very hands on workshop intensive will finally get you comfortable with your camera and using natural light for your food photos. The technical instruction is made easy to understand. Not only will you get to learn how to use your camera but you’ll learn several food and prop styling techniques, tips and tricks to make your food look fabulous.
The in person workshop is limited to only 16 people so that everyone has a chance to get all the help they need.
We will talk about the best ways to use natural light to bring out the best in your food. There will be several food and prop styling demos.
This workshop is being filmed with a professional video crew so all attendees get a free copy of the video recording. If you are not able to attend the workshop live, you may purchase just the recording instead.
Every student will do a food photo shoot of their own with the help of the instructors. You can use your own camera, or there will be several cameras, lenses and tripods available for students to use.
This workshop is special because I am teaching this with my two favorite stylists. They are my dream team.
Alise Arato is a dear friend of mine and also my favorite food stylist. She is so sweet and so great with food. We’ve been working together for over 15 years. Alise can pretty much make any food look good. She’s like a food scientist and a food artist both at the same time.
She is always cool, calm, and collected – and has a great sense of humor.
Amy Paliwoda is the other fabulous stylist we will be spending the weekend with. Amy is a professional prop stylist. We’ve also been working together for over 15 years. Amy is more than a prop stylist though. She is a designer and and art director as well. When we all get together to test for our portfolios (take pictures for ourselves and for our websites), Amy usually art directs the whole thing.
When the three of us are together, we each do our thing and create something that would not have happened had we tried it on our own.
These ladies are like family to me and I just can’t wait for you to meet them.

WHY YOU SHOULD COME TO THE WORKSHOP
I’ve done a lot of workshops since 2011 for food photography. Here’s what I love the most about this. Everyone who comes to the workshop has totally different background, but, we ALL love food. So our love for food makes a connection that everyone can relate to.
You will leave the workshop with some new, dear friends. I have so many friends from our workshops. The connection of food and photography is actually not that common. With this workshop, we are all the same.
I think what happens is that you will realize that you are not the only one that is struggling with your food photos. In fact, everyone is. So you will be kindred spirits with all the students there.
Let me know if you have any question and I can’t wait to see you at the workshop!
