Food Photography Workshop

Saskatoon Food Photography and Food Styling Workshop

Do you love posting food photos of your latest meal out to Instagram or Facebook but they never seem to do the food justice?

Do you create fabulous recipes for your food blog but you struggle with styling them for the camera?

Does lighting puzzle you? Do your linens never seem to have that casually perfect drape about them?

Maybe you just want to get better with your DSLR or you want to learn how to tell a story with your food and your camera.

We'll cover all of these things and more in this hands-on Saskatoon food photography and food styling workshop!

This workshop is also the third stop on the three week long 2018 FBC Great Canadian Road Trip.  Check out the Road Trip itinerary for more fun stops throughout Canada!
