NEW! Vermont Farm to Table Photography Workshop


You guys! I get to teach my absolute FAVORITE workshop in my new hometown in Southern Vermont! And in FALL, no less!!
Picture this: Fall in New England with farms, food, foliage and photography….what could be more perfect?


When: October 5-8, 2017

Cost: $895 (please note that all workshops are non-refundable)


Here’s the skinny:

This is a workshop for people who love food and photography, and who want to learn to tell a story through images. All levels are welcome!

The workshop starts on a Thursday in the early evening, and ends on Sunday around noonish (or so) in the utterly charming town of Brattleboro, Vermont.
We will meet at my home in Brattleboro on Thursday evening for a meet and greet over cocktails and nibbles. This is a great time to meet your fellow workshop-attendees and discuss the game plan for the weekend.

On Friday morning, we will start bright and early. We’ll meet at my home in the AM, where we will talk about how to tall a story though images, and then we will head off for 2 farm visits where you will put your documentary photography skills to work!

Saturday will start off at the most adorable farmers market on the planet (among the trees, near a stream and a covered bridge. Seriously.) We will then spend the day working on natural light food photography, complete with demos and lots of hands-on practice. 

Sunday morning will be devoted to a Q&A session and a critique of everyone’s favorite images from the weekend.

-Class instruction Thursday to Sunday

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 Clare 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 Clare's studio??) and will learn how to make their food look its very best for the camera. If you have previously taken Clare's 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.

When:New dates to be announced soon!

Time: 10am until approximately 3 or 4pm
