12th & 13th of May 2018: Un déjeuner à Paris – Food Styling & Photography Workshop

*** This workshop is SOLD OUT. For any information on the next available dates, please send me an email to this address: thepineapplechef@gmail.com***

Join us for a photography masterclass this spring, when Paris is absolutely gorgeous and markets are bustling with fresh produce from the French countryside. Learn how to master your own food photography during a 2 day hands-on workshop, taught by food photographers and food writers @sliceofpai, @evainthekitchen, @linda_lomelino and @thepineapplechef

Our location is a beautiful Haussmannian apartment in the 9th arrondissement.

We’ll cover food photography, food styling, you’ll learn how to cook for the camera, so that your food looks its absolute best, and how to create different moods to find the perfect style that fits your voice. We’ll also cover how to work with natural light and how to use the right props to help visually strengthen your story.

After we’ve taught you how to set up different moods and you’ve taken plenty of pics to practice, we’ll guide you through the editing process in Lightroom. After the weekend, you’ll have a portfolio of new pictures to use and the knowledge how to set up your own shoots to create the mood and image (or moving image) you want.

Our wonderful sponsors: Pierre Hermé, Champagne Lanson, Madame de la Maison, Maison Margaret and Pedro Domingues Fleurs
