G&F - Food Photography Workshop


I am SUPER excited to be hosting, along with my husband Mike, our first Gather & Feast food photography workshop!! 

Whether you’re a creative, a blogger or a small business owner wanting to take your photography to the next level, this workshop is for you! Join us for a fun day of teaching, strategy, hands-on classes, and a look into the world of G&F, as well as enjoying lots of beautiful food. Yea! ☺

Together we will cover building and developing your own personal brand, social media tips, tricks and strategies, photography basics (manual camera settings, lenses, lighting, composition, angles, etc), the Gather & Feast workflow (styling, photography, media management, editing, processing, delivery), and hands-on scene creation, shooting and post production.

The classes will have a relaxed ‘hands-on approach’ and we encourage you to bring and use your own gear during the workshop. There will also be props and backgrounds available on site to help style the food.

The event will take place at Melbourne’s ‘The Establishment Studios’ in Prahran, beginning at 10am and finishing at 4pm.

It’s going to be an amazing day! Check out all the deets below and let me know if you have any questions.

Only a limited number of spots available... don’t miss out!
