Natural Light Food Photography Workshop

Whether you are a food blogger, a budding food photographer, or someone who just really likes taking pictures of their meals, this class is for you. In this 5-hour workshop, we talk about utilizing natural light, composition, exposure, and much more. Students spend the majority of their time shooting assignments and get to develop their own style and approach to food photography in the process. A digital DSLR is required and a laptop is highly recommended. Suitable for all levels of photographers, (and ideal when taken back to back with the class below!!)

3-day Farm to Table Photography Workshop

If you love food and photography and are passionate about documenting where food comes from, this is the class for you. This multiple-day workshop on beautiful Whidbey Island will focus on how to tell a story through photographs. Specifically, you will learn how to tell a story about food. Over the course of 3 days, students will visit and photograph 2 farms and a local farmers market, learn about natural light food photography and styling, and take a whole lot of photographs. There will also be delicious meals and wine, time to relax, and a group critique where students share their work with the group.

Food styling and Photography Workshop

Chef and cookbook author, Becky Selengut and I co-teach this class that focuses on food and prop styling, as well as natural light food photography. Students will have lots of time to play with dishes and linens, (have you seen the wall of props in my studio??) and will learn how to make their food look its very best for the camera. If you have previously taken my Natural Light Food Photography class, this is a perfect continuation. It's also a great intro to food photography and styling for the student who already feels comfortable with their camera.

Open Studio

Have you taken a workshop from me before but want more time to play with props, shoot food on different surfaces and get some feedback (or not) while you do it? Here's your chance. This is a not a traditional workshop-- there will be no lectures or lesson plan. Instead, you bring your own food (or other subject) to shoot and you work on your own project. I'll be there for guidance, to offer suggestions, and to help you troubleshoot issues. This day is really about what YOU make it!

Date: Next workshop TBD

Time: 10am until approximately 3pm

Where: my studio

Cost: $200 (HALF the cost of renting the studio on your own)
