People! I’m so excited to announce I’m offering my first-ever Stateside photography workshop!

You guys asked for workshops closer to home and I am listening. So on August 10th, I’ll be teaching a 1-day styling and food photography workshop in Seattle. (Hometown for the win!)

Here’s what I’ve got in store for you:

  • We’ll meet at a light filled studio in West Seattle. After getting to know each other over coffee and pastries, I’ll take you through the ins and outs of using your camera: aperture, shutter speed, ISO, auto-focus points—all the stuff you need to know to take great photos.

  • Once you’re feeling comfortable with your camera settings, we’ll discuss how to source unique props and ingredients. We’ll talk about how to style visually compelling images. And I’ll share my favorite techniques for finding compositions that will make your images stand out.

  • We’ll gather around the table for a delicious seasonal lunch (prepared by yours truly) and an informal Q&A session.

  • After lunch, I’ll demonstrate how to shape natural light and how to get better control over your images by shooting tethered. (Don’t worry if you don’t know what that is. But I guarantee it’s a game changer.)

  • You’ll have time to practice styling and shooting your own images and receive one-on-one feedback on your work

  • And we’ll finish with a tutorial of how to set up a simple editing flow in Lightroom. I’ll share my favorite tips, tricks and shortcuts for creating eye-catching images.

All skill levels are welcome. This will be the perfect opportunity to learn to shoot manually and master the settings on your camera if you’re new to that. More experienced photographers will love the hands-on styling, lighting and editing sessions.
