Online // January 12th, 2019

The location:

San Francisco, California.


  • A live, digital conference covering the foundations of food styling from a-z.

  • A jam-packed in-studio day of hands-on cooking, food styling, and shooting. Includes breakfast and lunch.

  • An optional add-on demo day where you’ll observe and take part in live food styling demonstrations.

** PLUS: Exclusive Bonuses **

  • A core food styling kit comprised of must-have tools.

  • Ongoing opportunities to continue your food styling education with fresh styling content and instruction.


One week prior to our shoot we’ll have a digital pre-production call. Lighting, angle, prop styling, composition, plating techniques, cooking methods and more will be discussed using practical examples all from the food stylist’s perspective in order to lay a solid foundation for an immersive in-studio styling day. 

Once in studio you’ll cook and style your way through recipes and food styling stations designed to give you hands-on experience with various food styling techniques.  You’ll then take your styling creations to a professional set where you’ll see your work translated through the lens. 


The optional add-on demo day gives you an additional day in studio with the opportunity to observe instructional styling demonstrations and learn a wide variety of food styling techniques up close and in an intimate setting. Even more foundation for your in-studio day.
