Summer workshop date to be announced shortly. Please get in touch to be kept informed.

Suitable for people with smartphones or cameras and complete beginners to those with a little more camera knowledge.

Take a look below for more information on the content and format of the food photography workshops, but here’s something special that we are offering on the Summer workshop.

At the venue in Chester the owners have a number of beehives and we will begin the day with a short introduction to bee keeping and honey harvesting. There will be an opportunity to photograph the bees and the honeycombs up close should you wish to do so in full protective gear. If you prefer to remain at a safe distance that’s fine too.

The food we eat, photograph and style will be based around recipes using the honey from the bees at Holly House.

Michelle, our host, will make us feel very at home in her spacious  and beautiful house and will keep us fed and ‘watered’ with mouth-watering homemade food. She is a very accomplished cook who regularly holds dinner parties and supper clubs.

I have been a professional photographer for more than ten years and now specialise in working with artisan bakers and crafts people. I run a wide variety of workshops and love to share my passion for photography.

With my guidance and expertise you will learn how to set up simple but stunning food and drink shots, using a range of different backgrounds and props. You will learn which camera settings to use and you will see a dramatic improvement in your photography and your confidence.

If you are using a smartphone rather than a camera I will show you how to get the best results with it. 

Take a look at a recent food photography workshop on the blog.

Here’s an idea of what you will learn: • The best kit for photographing food (without spending a fortune). • How to blur the background and get your subject to stand out. • How to set up an indoor shooting area. • What to use as backgrounds for your shots. • How to style the food and props. • How to shoot close up photographs. • Simple composition techniques and getting creative with colour, textures and patterns. • How to do simple edits, such as cropping, straightening, adding text and more, using freely available software.
