ON-LINE INTERACTIVE FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY, FOOD STYLING + VISUAL STORY TELLING COURSE

ON-LINE INTERACTIVE FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY, FOOD STYLING + VISUAL STORY TELLING COURSE

After months of thinking about it and weeks of planning, my first on-line interactive live food photography, food styling and visual story telling e-course is here! I've really designed this e-course for YOU - all of you who have e-mailed me over the past few years expressing an interest in working with me but finding that you're just a tiny bit too far away to make it to my cosy London studio for my in-person workshops. Now you can study food photography, styling and visual story telling The Little Plantation way, without even needing to leave the comfort of your own home. 

Below you'll find some information to give you a good sense of what the food photography, food styling and visual story telling e-course is about, what I'll cover in the lessons and what sets it apart from other food photography courses.

THE BEST FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY PROPS FOR FOOD BLOGGERS

THE BEST FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY PROPS FOR FOOD BLOGGERS

When I post a food photo on instagram I often get asked where I get my food photography props from. And seeing that this post all about sourcing food photography props for every budget is two years old now (!), I felt it was time to provide you with an update. 

Before I delve into today's blog post all about the best food photography props for food bloggers a few things for transparency - today's blog post is NOT for those just getting started and eager to buy cheap and cheerful food photography props and ceramics (for that please head here). There is nothing wrong with keeping a close eye on your budget when you're thinking about making the move into food blogging and in fact I highly recommend you budget carefully at the start of your food blogging journey because it's very easy for things to get out of hand ;). 

FOOD STYLING AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE MARCH 2018

FOOD STYLING AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE MARCH 2018

After lots of planning, anticipation, excitement and heaps more vegan cooking the London food styling and food photography course Silvia and I hosted this March has come and gone. As you all know from this blog post teaching is what fills my heart more than anything in the world. So just imagine what I was like before and during the workshop (HINT: a child in a sweet shop). 

Silvia and I thought you'd like to see what a food photography and food styling workshop with us looks like which is why we are both sharing impressions of the two and a half day workshop with you today. Just click here if you'd like to see Silvia's take on the workshop, or read on if you want to re-live the workshop through my eyes and see some images from behind the scenes :).

Just click here to find all the other parts in the series. Now on with today's post!

It's been nearly two weeks since the internet went crazy over the 'new' social media app, VERO. I posted about it on instagram and invited people to share their thoughts and views about the social media app there too. You can see what everyone had to say by clicking here; it's an interesting read, so if you're keen to get a good sense of how people feel about the app I invite you to give it a quick once over ;). 

MADRID FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY, STYLING AND SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP

MADRID FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY, STYLING AND SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP

I feel life is there for living, for trying new things, for taking risks and for learning from your mistakes and triumphs. Always eager to practice what I preach I hence decided to take the plunge and teach my first food photography, styling and social media workshop abroad. It felt like a risk because the people that follow me on social media and visit my blog mainly live in the UK, but I was eager to test the waters and see what would happen if I hosted a photography workshop in Madrid. I must say, I'm delighted that I did because I got to work with a LOVELY group of women, whom I may never otherwise have had a chance to spend time with. But before I tell you all about them, want to hear what happened over the 2.5 days of the workshop? Cool, because that's what today's blog post is all about!
