Workshop foodphotography & styling Cornwall April 2016


Yay!! Here it finally is.. It’s been months in the making but we wanted to make sure we had all the details figured out for our workshop before the announcement would go out. Initially we talked about having the workshop in October but that was just to soon in busy times so we moved it along to the spring month. What better way to refresh your foodphotography than doing it in beautiful Cornwall in the spring?

Janie from Hedgecombers has been an absolute gem in getting us the best program ever, as we are spending a day (well ok, almost a day) in the beautiful restaurant of Fifteen Cornwall. We will be shooting the chefs in action, having a wonderful lunch there as well and of course shoot that too.

Of course that is not the only part of the workshop as it will be a total of three days. Three days in which you submerge yourself in all things foodphotography and styling. In an environment that is inspirational and with people who have the same mad hobby as you do. We will start the friday with introductions followed by theory sessions, which we will keep entertaining by adding in some live sessions in between. You can see the program below. Since there are still some minor details we’re working on it is a rough outline of the program. Once you sign up you will receive a full overview complete with times and things you need to bring etcetera.

Our location is Wringworthy Cottages, where we have secured a few wonderful cottages where each of you will have your own room. No shared rooms but the cottages are shared.
