Food Styling and Photography Workshop
Sorry for the long delay between posts, but I'm guessing you've gotten used to the regularity of my irregularity. Luckily, 2 events have compelled me to put something up on my blog - and that something is SOMETHING! Clare, aka Fisty Barboza (please feel free to ask me how she got her nickname) and I have been teaching food styling and food photography workshops for awhile now. I absolutely love working with Clare and I especially love that part of what I get to teach in our classes is how to shoot "ugly" food. Because, let's face it, sometimes a pile of dal on a plate looks like shit. Not every dish is a stunner. In our classes I help folks learn how to make their food look the best in front of the camera, even "ugly" food can be improved. Anyhoo -- Clare and I are teaching another food photography and styling workshop this April 15th. There are still 2 spots remaining!
Also on the workshop horizon (see the flyer above) is a 3 way class with me, Clare, and the lovely and talented Helene Dujardin who's coming all the way from Charleston, South Carolina (home of my 100 year old grandma!) A 3-way class sounds wrong and that is not included in the ticket price, you sicko. But! you will get some other experiences that will definitely increase your skill set, at least in the photography and food styling realm. Here's more info about the 3 day 3 way workshop in August:
Join photographers Clare Barboza, Helene Dujardin and me for a 3 day workshop full of photography, styling, and delicious food in Seattle, Washington!

Where: Clare Barboza's studio, as well as other locations out and about in Seattle.
What: This is a 3-day hands-on workshop. Over the course of three days, students will learn about natural light, composition, exposure, utilizing props, and food styling from the perspectives of both the photographer and the chef. They will practice their photography skills in a studio setting, in the busy kitchen of Poppy Restaurant, as well as an outdoor setting. Additionally, Clare and Helene will share their processes with post-production and workflow in both Photoshop and Lightroom. There will be delicious food prepared by Becky each day, and a dinner party for the entire group on the third night.
How much: $1250, which includes 3 days of instruction, lunch each day, and a dinner party with wine pairings from sommelier April Pogue on Sunday night.
