we hope it goes well… if it does we would like nothing more than to be able to bring similar workshops to major centres across the country with local professional photographers. So stay tuned!


I would absolutely love to be able to attend but unfortunately I will be in Scotland. My Christmas present was actually a private photography lesson from Jackie and she is fantastic…. hopefully I can make it next time as there is always so much to learn!


I took my first food photography class with Jackie and I know she is fantastic. Definitely a great learning opportunity and I am really looking forward to her additional class on the business side of things!

I would absolutely love to attend this workshop! Unfortunately I work late the night before and there’s no way I’ll be able to get over to Vancouver that early in the morning:( Hopefully there will be another one in the future sometime.
