One week prior to our shoot we’ll have a live webinar “pre-production call” to lay a solid foundation for an immersive shoot day and collaborate on your custom shot list.  You'll get ahead on your content creation at the same time you’re honing your food styling skills!  We’ll dive deep into photo composition, propping, food styling to light and angle and more in order to maximize your time on set.  Friday evening we’ll welcome you with dinner, your styling kit, and live instructional food styling demonstrations.  

Saturday morning begins early at the iconic Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market in San Francisco.  We’ll shop the most beautiful produce and return to the studio to cook and shoot our way through recipes and food styling stations designed to give you the most well-rounded exposure to various food styling techniques.  Lunch and snacks will be provided and our culinary creations of the day will supply us with a family style dinner.  Once we're wrapped we'll pop the champagne and celebrate the day with high fives and a super informative image review session, plus next steps to continue your styling education.  


Topics covered throughout the workshop include:

Defining your edible brand

Food styling as story telling.  Learn how to use food to create your unique edible aesthetic, develop a signature photo and food style, and deliver a consistent brand experience for your readers.

Equipping your food styling kit

You'll learn to use your core food styling kit as well as other unique food styling tools to bring life and longevity under the lens to your food.

The food styling approach

Five food styling questions to filter every food photo you take through.

The perfect pair:  food + props

Learn how to select and compose props to compliment your food and elevate your story then build on that with practical advice on how to create a signature prop collection.  Even with space and $$ constraints.

Food styling fundamentals

Learn to select the right recipes for food photography (or how to write your own), how to shop and source ingredients, how to style your food for different lighting set ups and camera angles, principles of plate composition, plus lots of tips on cooking for the camera and more.

Hands-on food styling

Time to get your hands dirty!  Cook, style, and shoot a thoughtful selection of recipes from beginning to end with a wealth of real time advice, troubleshooting tips, and food styling tricks.  You’ll rotate through food styling “stations” to give you well rounded exposure to different styling techniques and an arsenal of images to add to your blog or portfolio.
