As Canon UK & Ireland’s preferred trainer in Food photography, having hosting multiple training sessions for their members, various Instagram influencers and celebrities I’m pleased to now be offering monthly food photography workshops.

Whether you are a food blogger, a budding food photographer or you just love photographing delicious creations,  I will take the complications out of food photography, reducing the need for costly gear and will share the tips and tricks to create stunning photographs which will leap off the page and say 'Eat Me'
This workshop is all about utilizing natural light and flash, developing your own style, creating mood, flavour and tone. Our Hands On approach allows you to experiment with food and props learning how a simple set up can change the way you photograph food.
I want to inspire you and teach you creative shortcuts, lighting ideas and styling techniques that will give your photographs the edge.
Using my extensive Executive chef background I will show you all the tips and tricks required to style food for the camera.

I have shot imagery & campaigns for many national and International clients both here in New Zealand and the UK and continue to service both markets. I will show you how I run a successful shoot for my clients enabling you to produce stunning results.
