3 day Farm-to-Table Food Photography/Styling Workshop - Bullock Lake Farm, Salt Spring Island



Join me, food stylist Aurelia Louvet, and the crew at Bullock Lake Farm for this beautiful 3 day Farm-to-Table food photography and styling workshop to be held on Salt Spring Island. Together we'll enjoy 3 full days of learning, styling, shooting, laughing and of course, eating! The focus will be on both technical and stylistic aspects of food photography as well as visual storytelling and developing a 'look' that is all your own and a round table discussion on the business side and how the industry works. Aurelia Louvet will give you all the insight into the tricks, tips, and methods that the professional food stylists use in their craft, and Molly Wilson of Bullock Lake Farm will design a gorgeous styled table scape shoot for us on Saturday night in the Bullock Barns. Farm chef, Julian Oberlacher, will create amazing farm-to-table feasts for us to photograph and enjoy. 


Come and learn the how-to's of professional food photography: working food with light and angles, understanding contrast, depth of field and composition as it applies to food, as well as the key equipment involved in food photography. We'll also discover the way in which your choice of props, surfaces, and other styling aspects change the look and feel of your shot. Props and styling aids will be supplied.
