Short but Sweet
Accomodation, food and inspiration are all included. Bring your camera and a healthy appetite for learning. Basic techniques, creative shortcuts, food styling, lighting ideas, processing techniques, folio production and editorial angles for travel, food and wine.
This Masterclass is open to everyone and anyone who simply wants to enjoy their food and photography. There is time and opportunity for anyone to gain new skills during the Masterclass, and inspiration abounds thanks to the charming regional location and local culinary delights. Our schedule is designed to let you enjoy the experience, and learn at the same time.
It's a small group so we offer extremly personal levels of guidance. Two professional photographers on hand for the duration to assist a maximum of 6 people.
Food from a different angle
As people always say, 'Eat with your eyes first.' However, before capturing beautifully presented food on a plate in one single still frame with your camera, we also believe in the appreciation of the food that we are eating by learning where it comes from is just as important. We like to do things differently. This photographic masterclass will rediscover your senses by unearthing the essence of Daylesford, from paddock to plate.
Yes we'll be spending lots of time
shooting sweet treats and fine cuisine.
But food photography is not always
about beautiful food on the plate?
This Masterclass will also be making a
few stops in the region to search out
those farm fresh ingredients that make
the food special. Documenting the
story of food from farm gate to kitchen
makes for a more detailed a varied
We'll also be meeting some of the local people who have helped to make
Dayelsford and surrounds a gourmet
(and yes, we recommend you add a little time after the Masterclass to visit Hepburn Spa for a pamper or a detox)
