Welcome to the first 4-week online food styling workshop! The live version of my food styling workshop has been reimagined for digital so if you can’t make it to San Francisco, I’ll come to you! Each week is packed with food styling instruction, practical interactive examples and fun assignments designed to help you apply what you’ve learned and grow as a food stylist. We’ll cover editorial and commercial styling from every angle. From recipe selection and ingredient sourcing to every aspect of cooking and plating for the camera. You’ll get professional feedback each week plus access to open q&a time.

The optional food styling video library is the live demo day gone digital. It contains 10 food-specific instructional styling videos and signing up for the course means you’ll have access to additional videos published in the future. If you’re looking for more one-on-one time, whether it be for portfolio review, career direction, or more digital “hands-on” styling help, individual coaching sessions are available too.

One of the only workshops out there dedicated solely to the art of food styling, please note there is no instruction in photography. We’re focusing on food styling all four weeks.

This food styling workshop was everything I had hoped for and more. Five minutes into the online webinar, I knew I was right to sign up. Abby is so knowledgable about every aspect of food styling and her demonstrations were outstanding. I would recommend this workshop to anyone looking to learn more about food styling.

I had the absolute pleasure of attending a food styling workshop with @abbystolfo a couple weeks ago and it was SO much fun! I learned a ton as she pushed me out of my comfort zone (read: rut). I would highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to learn more about food styling and improve that particular skill set!

I loved that this workshop was focused on styling only, not photography with styling as an afterthought. It was way beyond what I could have even hoped for. So well done!!
