Teaching day reflections

A great day of teaching on another workshop at on Saturday. As ever, a friendly and enthusiastic group of students hungry to learn how to photograph food. We looked at using studio lighting, creating different effects using simple techniques to get the best out of the food, raw and cooked. A fun day that went all too quickly, thanks to those taking part. New courses planned for the New Year.

Olive Oil Challenge at my food photography workshop

Had a great time on the recent my workshop day, teaching how to photograph food. Thanks to all those who attended. One of the students wanted to photograph olive oil being poured over a roast vegetable dish. Fantastic! A good opportunity to show how to get a good pouring shot using daylight. Good use of camera controls to get the result wanted. A couple of my favourites shots of the day by the students. My next course on food photography is on the 25th Oct more info at
