Who Attends

This class is for photographers, stylists, ceramicists, bloggers, food lovers, restaurant owners, artisan food companies, Master Chef contestants, content creators and more. Some class attendees come happy to create freely, others have specific projects or a desire to capture content that can be used across their digital platforms.

Our Approach

We believe that the real value in this class is our extensive, hands on involvement in the creative process. We’re there to help you every step of the way, but we encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. We begin by helping those wanting to style set up their equipment (if needed), then it’s time to develop the concept and begin propping. We work with attendees on setting up for food and still life shooting. During the class we navigate lighting, surface selections, work through the best composition, practically plate or place and finally capturing the shot. We work along side you, mentoring you and sharing what’s needed to help you capture your desired image.
