*NEW* 3-Day Farm to Table Photography Workshop

(PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS JULY 30, 2016.)

I've said it before and I'll say it again-- this is, hands down, my favorite workshop to teach. It combines some of my favorite things; telling a story though photographs, good food and great people.

I'm thrilled to annouce that we're changing things up a bit this year, and taking the workshop to Leavenworth, Washington! Students will stay at the amazing Sleeping Lady Resort where, in their off time, they will be free to take advantage of the Sleeping Lady's day spa, dry sauna, fitness room or spend some time outside, renting a bike or strolling through the resort's organic gardens. The group will enjoy all their breakfasts and dinners at the Sleeping Lady's award-winning Kingfisher Restaurant and Wine Bar.

The workshop begins on Thursday, September 15th in the late afternoon. We will spend a little time getting to know one another, and then will have our first lecture/pdf, covering how to tell a story through images, (which we will be doing the next day!) Afterwards, there will be some time to get settled in our rooms and then dinner. PLEASE NOTE THAT ROOMS ARE SHARED.

On Friday, we will visit and document Oh Yeah Farms, a sustainable, organic vegetable and grain farm. We will also visit and photograph a second farm, (still TBD.) Much the day will be spent taking photos, but there will also be free time before we meet again for dinner.

Saturday will be all about food photography! Students will see how the food they documented on the farm the day before gets used in a restaurant setting. I am so happy to be collaborating with Colin Patterson from the former Sutra restaurant in Seattle at his new restaurant in Leavenworth, Mana. Students will practice their food photography on location at Mana, as well as documenting Colin in the kitchen. Afterwards, we will enjoy a delicious lunch together.

Saturday afternoon will be spent working independently on post production, before we gather again for a group critique and dinner.

The workshop ends on Sunday morning at 10am.

When: September 15-18, 2016

Cost: $1260 (includes workshop fee, food and lodging. Please note that all workshops are nonrefundable.)

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 Food Styling and Photography!!)

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.
