2 day intensive Food Photography Workshop - Shropshire, UK

Join me for this 3 day intensive food photography and styling workshop to be held in the beautiful Shropshire Hills on the borders of Wales. The focus of the course will be on both technical and stylistic aspects of food photography as well as developing a 'look' that is all your own. We'll explore the business end of the trade, learn how to tell "food stories", and dig into all of the principles, tips and tricks that the professionals employ.

Learn the how-to's: working food with light and angles, understanding contrast, depth of field and composition, 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.

Whether you're an amateur or professional food blogger, pro photographer looking to break into the commercial industry, a wedding photographer looking to up their food game, or even someone who just loves posting images of gorgeous food that they eat, this course will take your food photography to the next level. Come and join us for an incredibly fun, informative and delicious weekend!
